I am back from my trip to planet Carinthia. More pictures at the berka.se blog.
I made this image using GIMP and the gas giant plugin. I changed the colors of the my image from Carinthia and then added the gas giant as another layer. Then I changed the opacity of the added layer to make it look good.
We are now back from our trip to Paris. More images can be found at the berka.se blog.
A while ago I tasted Young’s Double Chocolate Stout.
This was a very nice stout with a hint of coffee and chocolate. It was not as smooth as a Guinness, but instead it had a little bitter sting, that was very nice.
You can find this beer at bolaget.
Yesterday I tried Riggwelter Strong Yorkshire Ale
It was a bitter ale with a bit of chocolate smell and taste.
It was very nice. I will drink more of it…
We tasted Auchentoshan, Macallan (sherry cask, I think it was called “Excellencia”), Laphroaig and Bowmore.
We thought that the Laphroaig was the best one, and that the others was almost equal. It was interesting that the Laphroaig made the Bowmore rather lame. When comparing it to Laphroaig you could only barely recognize the peaty smell.
This weekend I tried Fuller’s London Porter.
The color is very dark, just like a porter is supposed to be.
The taste was a nice surprice. It tasted more like a stout than a swedish porter.
You can find this nice beer at bolaget.
This weekend I tried “Delicato Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2000″
It was a nice californian styled (and not too expensive) chardonnay with a bit buttery taste. It was great with grilled salmon.
At the whisky exebition at the “Vin och Sprit Historiska Museet” in Stockholm, we got to smell the malt from the new swedish whisky “Mackmyra“. It smelled very nice, and a bit different than the scottish malts. This will be a very interesting Whisky.
