    Try Left Hand Milk Stout if it's available.

    Yes, as the brewing process doesn't break down the lactose present in the milk. Therefore depending on your level of intolerance, I would suspect you would have a similar reaction when drinking it.

    I almost forgot to "review" the Nikka Coffey Malt. It was smooth, but unfortunately not very exciting. On top of thst I got an extreme hangover despite not drinking too much.

    Next time I want a really smooth and low peated whisky I'll buy an Auchentoshan or Dalwhinnie instead. They are both much cheaper and much better in my opinion.

    I'd say that an extreme hangover is the very definition of drinking too much.

    Yes I agree, but sometimes one small glass is too much, sometimes one bottle is too much. It depends on the quality.

    That sounds awful. What is the PDE for phenol? Is it there to numb the throat?

    What is PDE?

    But phenol levels is used to describe the amount of peat. I think a normal peaty whisky like Laphroaig has about 45 ppm and Ardbeg around 55 ppm, that is quite nice. 309 ppm is probably more of an aquired taste.

    I meant the toxicity of phenol. I have not done the math on the mass in the drinks consumed.

    You need to drink quite a few bottles of whisky at once before you reach lethal levels. But it's probably not good for your health, like most alcoholic beverages.

    Saw the Left hand Nitro in the "temporary in stock shelf" at "bolaget" today and bought a couple of bottles. It was very smooth indeed, not sure that I liked it as a beer, but I had no problem drinking it. I can imagine it's really nice when it's cold outside.

    The La Vache Folle that Coug recommend is not available here, but it is possible to order the Flying Monkeys, The Chocolate Manifesto (also from Canada), anyone tried that?

    Isn't it pretty cold in Sweden in January?

    Yesterday was -8 C, today -1 C. I think -20 or -30 C would be a really good time for a milk stout.

    Does it just stand there, frozen in the glass?

    Well... My plan was to drink it inside in the warmth, after you have been outside in the cold.

    Not only is there the new Diet Coke Zero, but now they have other strange flavors in tall, skinny cans for some reason.
    Does anyone really like them?

    Orange Coke and Lime Coke (non-diet) are pretty tasty from their Freestyle machines.

    They have the tall skinny cans (8oz) and the tall not-skinny cans (16oz). I still just drink regular diet.

    I mainly drink Polar seltzer these days, lime being a big favorite. Nothing much more that carbonated water. Aside from that, I really like a strong ginger beer. My favorite kinds being Regatta, Fever Tree, and Bundaberg. I don't have them too often because of the calories but it is my preferred drink of choice which happens to have no alcohol.

    I've been having the occasional Melt My Brain. Probably about 1 a week on average. I bought a few 6 packs when it showed up in stores back in the fall and have them in the basement. I haven't had a margarita in probably a year or more. Once I get some Filthy Black Cherries I'm going to try making some Manhattans.

    I drink pretty much just plain filtered tap water aside from whole milk on my breakfast cereal in the morning.

    No one is forcing you to go to those "security nighmares". Whatever that means.

    Is the security for you or for everyone else?

    Luckily theaters aren't the only places with them. Also, there are people you can see about your phobias.

    Last Christmas I was given a bottle of Galway Pipe 12yr old port as a gift. Opened it the other night, and is certainly a nice smooth port. Watched the first Jason Borne movie whilst having a glass of it....

    I've just tasted 2*4 cl of 85% home made absinth. It tasted mostly like cough medicine (not so much of alcohol as expected), but was very inspiring.

    How'd you actually home make it? You'd expect at 85% alcohol to have tasted a lot worse than cough medicine

    Yes, it actually tasted a bit worse than cough medicine. I don't know exactly how this batch was born, but seems like a real hassle to make proper Absinth yourself, according to Wikipedia.

    It was interesting to try, but it's not a new favourite if I put it that way.

    A homemade version wouldn't be my entry into a particular type of liquor. BTW, did you see anything strange afterward?

    I agree. But I didn't know what it was, or the percentage, before I tasted it.

    I didn't see anything unusual. It was more like a normal herb liquor.
