Of course it tastes like coffee; it is made from coffee beans. But it doesn't taste at all like the brewed coffee that most people are used to. I have always made that clarification.

My favorite espresso drink is the Cappuccino:




Not to be confused with the Alpuccino:

Trying a new brand today. From Brasserie de Rochefort in Belgium, Trappistes Rochefort 8 is a strong dark ale. Great taste and refreshing, with a very nice, short-lived aftertaste. Must be cautious though, it's 9.2% ABV. I highly recommend this one. I think I will also try their Trappistes Rochefort 10, which is similar and a bit stronger at 11.3% ABV.

2 Copas. I'm not sure I'd give it a 95 rating, but it is pretty good.

I'm also trying to balance my coffee drinking with more tea, especially in the afternoon and evening. And losing weight and exercising more - this getting old stuff sucks. I have to watch my blood pressure and cholesterol now, so I'm trying to get everything straight before they take away my health insurance.

Good for you. American diet will kill you if you let it.

The cholesterol doesn't bother me - the total is a bit high, but most of it is good cholesterol. But high blood pressure you have to take seriously. I figure if I lose 20 pounds that'll do it.

New Belgium Juicy Watermelon Lime Ale


I don't actually taste any watermelon or lime.  It's just a nice smooth light summer ale.  Excellent in fact.

Strongbow Gold Apple Cider. My wife saw it the other day and picked it up. I had never heard of it, and was surprised when an article said that the company has fifteen percent of global cider sales and is the fifth best selling cider in the US.

It is sweet, but not too sweet, which is the way I like ciders. It has a nice tang to it and no alcohol taste at all (it is five percent ABV). Very nice little cider.

Strongbow is probably the best-selling cider in England. I haven't drunk any in many years, but I remember it as being pretty good, and in the same ballpark as beer, alcohol-wise.

My personal favorite, back in the day, was Dry Blackthorn. It was noticeably less sweet than Strongbow and Woodpecker, the two brands that drove the market back then. Apparently, it has had a checkered past since I was drinking it in the 70s.

I read an article which said that Strongbow has 29 percent of the UK cider market and has 20 percent of the US cider market.

I was deciding to do something productive, and found some more bills that need paying. So I decided I needed something to smooth things out.

That sounds pretty delicious.

I wasn't in the mood to savor it properly. But yes, it's pretty good. In general, I like the Rhone wines - Cotes du Rhone, Chateauneuf du Pape, and similar. In a decent year, they all tend to be dark and smooth and tasty. In a good year, they are often really outstanding. It was a Cotes du Rhone from a great year (I can't remember which - 1972 maybe? - somewhere around there) that got me started drinking red wine.
