Erdinger Dunkel (a dark, German beer); wonderful.

Back when I still brewed my own batches, my favorite recipe was for a Hefeweizen Dopplebock. My last batch was pretty heavy though @ ~11% ABV. It was deceptively smooth and didn't really taste of alcohol. If I was a bigger alcohol person and didn't sell my gear, I'd definitely make more.

Sounds absolutely delicious.

I love dark German beers.

Gin and tonic, with Fords Gin and Fever Tree "light" tonic, pretty fantastic, Fords is a favorite, it's an excellent gin (big on the juniper/citrus, a real "modern" type gin), love the packaging, and Fever Tree is a "reference" mixer. :D

Am sipping an Erdinger Dunkel (a lovely German dark beer).

As the nights draw in, and winter approaches, I find that my preferences increasingly turn to dark, rich, luscious, beers, whereas I quite like the IPA style in summer.

I sipped, savored and thoroughly enjoyed a Trappistes Rochefort 8 - actually, two of them - last night.

A perfect winter beverage.

Ah, been a while since I've had the pleasure of a Trappistes Rochefort 8! It's been really waaaaaay too long since I've made an excursion to the store in my area which sells all the various Trappiste Rocheforts plus various and sundry other delights by other wonderful breweries. Rochefort 8 is definitely one of my favorites. I've missed. it. One of these days I really, really need to remedy that situation!

I never tried Trappist, but sometimes I miss having a Chimay on occasion. I really liked their bleue, Rouge and blanche. I don't think I tried their 150.

Oops, just looked up Trappist. Now I'm confused.

It is a superb beer, and I must say that I really enjoyed it.

In fact, I shall purchase a few tomorrow, now that you mention it......
