I ONCE told my girlfriend that my Belgian White tasted yeasty (banana, clove, etc...) and now every time she tastes a beer, she says it tastes like yeast.

It's pretty hilarious!

I think one of my personal favourites, which surprisingly I havent seen here yet, was when I heard an aquantiance talking about beer being unhealthy.
He was trying to tell me that its all the yeast in beer that is bad for you...

Any explanation as to why the consumption of yeast would be unhealthy? By the same argument, I guess bread is unhealthy...and how long has mankind been eating bread risen by yeast? I would say maybe almost as long as mankind has been consuming beer.

On an antithetical side note, my primarily Heineken-drinking father said in the last week(more than once and with no probing on my part) that he enjoyed my 18-month-old Belgian triple(enough to get seconds) and "beers with flavor" in general. As my own alleged worst critic, even I thought the aged triple was my best batch to date. Today I also introduced him to Sapporo(which is a much better macro than I remember) with success. Small steps are still progress in the right direction.

But no mention of the alcohol being bad? Hmm, good to know

Sure it is. They're both dark! That's one of the two types. Dark and Bud.

I love how a lot of people equate "dark" with "bitter". My brother is like this. I should just serve beer in steel cups in a dark room.

My dad has periodically lectured us on how the term "ale" means beer with 3% or less alcohol . . and that the term "ale" was originally coined to identify which beer British sailors were allowed to drink. Who knows, maybe there was some English law governing the use of those words on ships 200 years ago . . but he's convinced that that's the only definition in effect today. He had to stop me when I told him my souped-up Dead Guy clone was a 7.4% ale and tell me that it must be a "beer" instead of an "ale" because of the alcohol content.

He's pretty funny when it comes to alcohol. He used to drink and my parents had some wicked parties when I was a kid (like we had the firewalkers and torch jugglers from that movie "Jewel of the Nile" in our living room!), but then he stopped completely when I was 12 when he was piloting a rental cabin cruiser for 2 weeks. He said he realized that he wasn't missing anything. The funny part is that he's now lost every single iota of alcohol knowledge he once had. If I'm halfway through my first beer, he'll ask me, "so, are you feeling pretty zonked yet?" Who talks like that? Half a beer? My wife thought he was accusing her of being an alcoholic when he did that to her the first few times.

I don't get a lot of association of dark = bitter but more dark = strong and a co-worker that thinks if it is bitter that is strong.

Most brown and even robust porters are not bitter same with the mild stouts.
