    And now I am ready to "just settle down for a long winter's nap." :D Trivia question; What famous fictional English character is drinking Old Grandad when we first read about him?

    Just so the "Beer Sport" thread provides a little education (I found out because I've been reading early editions of Fleming's novels. Those brits sure do know how to make a hero); https://flemingsbond.com/old-grandad-bourbon/

    Mrs P bought me Guinness milk stout by accident. It is surprisingly pleasant.

    It's not Guinness, but this is a very nice beer. Smooth with a hint of sweetness. And also from our area of Pennsylvania.

    Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition; you all know I love stout beers and I really like Jameson whisky. But this particular mixture just doesn't do it for me. There is something "off" about it that I can't place.

    Hmm, not sure what to think about these Caskmate Editions but havent tried it yet to be honest. But I'm keen to try the IPA Edition but missed to do so when visiting the Jameson Distillery last December. :rolleyes:

    Milkshake IPA's are the newest craze. I'm rather fond of them myself. They are extremely popular in Russia. It's easier to get a milkshake IPA than just a regular IPA.
