Default Which Should I Drink First?

I went to Sams Wine and Spirits (and beer too) a few nights ago and this is what I picked up. Your job now is to tell me the order in which I should drink them.... Here are the rules. Highest votes gets consumed first! One per night. I am not required to drink every night if I don't feel like it. One vote per person.

I'd never heard of Reunion beer before. Very cool! Great idea.
I'm going to have to find some now.

The sad thing is, I went there looking for two beers in particular and they were, sadly, out of both of them. There was shelf space, but they were just out.

I wanted to try a Rochefort 10, and I wanted to get a Hob Goblin for comparison in anticipation of my (Orfy's) clone being ready. Oh well, guess I'll have to go back again sometime....


I'll tell you though, that was an expensive 7 pack there! I think I paid about $45 for those seven beers. I had to work a couple of hours of overtime last night just to pay for them. LOL But, it's all in the name of research!!!

I'm wondering if the pilsner is going to be lighter than the IPA. Heck, I'm wondering what an Imperial Pilsner is supposed to taste like!!!! lol...

I don't think the light-to-dark thing matters so much if you aren't tasting them at the same time. And sadly, my budget won't allow for me to crack them all open for little samples.. this has to tide me over for awhile....

We swung by the Sam's in Highland Park the other day and they have a few Hobgoblins kicking around.

But they didn't have New Hollands' Dragon's Milk, which we need, honestly, because we're trying to formulate a clone for it

The Orval is the 'fish out of water' in that selection (pun intended). I said Skull Splitter because I have no clue what it is, I am guessing some insanely hopped thing-a-majig. They are seem to be big beers except the Orval. Looks like a great line up though, I am jealous hehe.

I only voted for Orval, because I've haven't had it.
