I am current on vacation in Chile and trying a Szot brewery Rubia al Vapor that a fellow HBTer gave me. Unfortunately it is light struck and I can't get past the skunk. But behind it seems like a decent beer.

So far best beer here in Chile has been a strong ale by Rothhammer. But I have a couple weeks to go and plan to try as many local craft as possible.

Cheers.

And before the wife gets home. Here's a nice little bomber to round things out. Ballast Point Victory at Sea Porter. A coffee and vanilla Imperial porter. At a measly 10%

Out of curiosity, why was it entered as 16E? What made it a specialty?

I actually had Szot at bar in Santa Cruz, Chile. I thought it was actually pretty good. It was an amazing trip. We introduced the "Irish Carbomb" to the bar, that is in a small town of a few thousand. They were kinda surprised us "Americans" drank so much. I have some pictures from the bar that are hilarious. Had a great trip. Chile is an amazing place. Would love to go back.

I just realized that I want to punch a whole load of you in a bad place for having access to a plethora of amazing offerings from a great many breweries. it's not your fault, I'm just jealous like that.

Tripel plus Brett. I'd think that's pretty classic specialty (Orval is noted under Belgian Specialty after all). The horsy/funky/slightly sour flavors don't fit under the normal Tripel style, no?

I love that one. Got a chance to try it before it was released and it is damn tasty!

So far tonight I've had my gold medal California Common and now I'm enjoying one of my punkin ales.

Oh, yeah ok definitely 16E if it's got brett in it. It's a good thing you had sensible judges...my club has a really awesome sour barrel-aged quad that we have entered into 3 competitions as 16E. The first two competitions we literally got feedback like "this should be entered as a sour" and had horrible scores because the judges didn't understand the category. The last time we entered was a few months ago, was judged by a grand master IV, won the category of over 40 entries, and was in serious contention for BOS.
