A beer that tastes like Coke would be Guinness, only Guinness doesn't have all the harsh carbonation and sugar flavorings that Coke has.

Note to self....

If you ever find yourself in Alabama, for the love of all that is holy, DON"T order the Guinness.

Those are words that I NEVER thought would cross my lips.

Having used "Water skiing on a couch" as an example of absurd ideas my BIL has come up with, I've decided that I can match him absurd idea for absurd idea. So the planning has begun. I've lined up two toboggans and will be keeping my eyes open for a couch on the side of the road awaiting the trash truck's arrival. I'm torn between wanting a wicker couch for the weight and wanting a recliner because, lets face it, if you are going to be waterskiing on a couch you pretty much need it to be a recliner. I've also been toying with the idea of how to have a TV somehow along for the ride. Spring can't get here soon enough.

You should probably aim for something heavy and sweet like an imperial, and ditch hops in favor of the oils at the end.

Forgot about this. My brother in law is a great guy, but he's a Florida country boy and engineer. Guess that's why I like him. I think he'll enjoy the chocolate wheat beer I've got fermenting though, he's always been a soda guy and loves stuff like Natty Light. Trying to wean him off that stuff lol

There is such a thing as cola syrup available. If a beer was dosed with enough to hint at the cola flavor it might be good.

Hmm. That's an interesting idea. Maybe just do a beer with base malts and low acid hops.
