    I couldn't wait any longer. Started with the Orval Ale tonight. Oh man, this is going to be a good week!

    Advice to anyone trying the Orval this week - pour as slow as you possibly can. Lots of head that goes nowhere!

    But it's worth the wait! What a delightfully complex beer!

    Foothills Jade IPA remains a really terrific beer.

    Credit-Nrrrrvous; thanks!!
    Style-3 guesses and the...
    Container-pint can
    Stemware-nonic pint glass
    Appearance-3 more guesses and the... (generous, foamy head)
    Nose-dark caramel syrup and earthy
    Mouthfeel-almost creamy
    Tastes-rich and full of dark caramel with hints of molasses, coffee and nuttiness
    IBU-none quoted but my guess is 30
    ABV-6%
    Overall impression-brings back pleasant, tasty memories from probably 20 years ago
    Ymm, Beer rating-not an exciting style but this is a high quality brew and earns a high cat 2 score; good for pairing with grilled fare (Ymm, Grilling, oh, wait...)

    I couldn't find a review on here. Searching for Acan didn't work. (I know, that sounds kinda funny)

    12.6%
    IBU?

    Malt and Tequila on the nose.

    This was a bit of a complex beer. I enjoyed what I got of it. I got the first few sips and then Mrs. Nrrrrvous claimed the rest.

    Loved the progression from the Malt up front to the sweetness of the Agave to the Tequila after. Maybe a touch too sweet? I'd have to try another to know for certain.

    Mrs. Nrrrrvous enjoyed it. Said it was definitely a high 2 or 3 for her.

    Thanks again dd!

    Yea, I couldn't help chasing him down last PM at Total Wine and then having him spend some time chilling in the fridge. You'll greatly enjoy that one later this week.

    Despite the fact this is DBR (), you'll get zero blow-back from me on that one.

    There is one rated higher on one beeradvocate list (Abt 12) and is readily available at any good craft beer store, but it's not an authentic Trappist beer. There's another rated higher on a different beeradvocate list (Westvleteren 12) but it's basically available only at the monastery for 6 months each year and maybe at the monastery store at times.

    I did find this remotely amusing that is was packaged in a bottle.

    I have an Abt 12 sour for the VP — i don’t think they release it anymore.

    Oooh, I've never seen or even heard of that one before. I know they've released a barrel-aged version and I saw a sign in Total Wine last PM for their Christmas Ale, but never a quad sour before. Looking forward to hearing/reading about that one.

    Hmm. Why did I think the ABT 12 was a trappist beer? Oh well. I'll just have to suffer through a 99 rated non-trappist beer. Poor me.

    I looked at the label of one of these last PM and really wanted to put one in the mixed 6er for VP but couldn't find the "authentic Trappist beer" hexagon on the packaging so I passed, but, I will return to Total Wine next week to grab a 4 pack of their Christmas ale at about $15 for the litter, IIRC.

    You have my deepest sympathy.
