I bought a Guiness fourpack recently, and while drinking the first can I noticed there's some plastic ball something in it. Can somebody tell me what it is about, it's sort of annoying.
Ah ok, I drank it from the can, and every time I took a sip the thing rolled to the front of the can. That was so not cool. I was about to slice it up and look what's inside, but I didn't want to wast the 25cents for the can.
Yeah yeah, everything makes perfect sense now, but it's not like I have proper beer glases here. Just some coca cola glases from McDonalds, so its purpose won't be served here anyway.
Of course we have, but since I'm moving out in a month and then move on to wherever a half year after I didn't really bother to buy anything new last few months, as I'd end up trashing all that stuff again, as I'd not know where to put it. So yeah.
I tried Guinness Black the other day and thought it was the best thing ever. I know, I suck at beer, but duh shit is growing on me quick. Already prefer it over liquor.
Meh, I had it when it first came out and wasn't really impressed. It tastes fine, but I imagine the Guinness being slapped on it is what makes it sell. It's nothing like Guinness though.

Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Urbock - Supposedly dubbed a "Smokebock". I like this a lot more than the Aecht Schlenkerla Eiche for sure. It has that same smokiness, but it's balanced nicely. That being said, this style I'm not terribly fond of. The smokey character is still definitely more palatable here than with the Eiche because of the lower ABV I guess.
Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout - Their Oatmeal Stout is a must have, so I jumped at the chance of trying this. I've had a few Chocolate Stouts before and liked them. This was no exception. It's a bit sweeter than Young's Double Chocolate Stout, and the presence of chocolate sort of stays with you longer while drinking it. But it's a Samuel Smith's stout, so expect quality.
Weihenstephaner Kristallweissbier - A lot like the Hefeweizen, only with the yeast filtered from it. Results in maybe a more subtle, yet cleaner taste. A bit spicy and plenty of nice carbonation.
Samuel Smith's Organic Cider - Not a beer obviously, but if you can get a hold of some, try it. It's really clean and refreshing.
Samuel Smith's Yorkshire Stingo - The strongest beer Samuel Smith makes aside from the Barleywine. Fruity smelling, fruit tasting. You can tell it packs a wallop, but it still has good balance. Nothing really imposing in taste. It has a slight alcoholic burn to it. It's deep colored and deep tasting, but maybe not as complex as darker Belgian beers. A decent brew, but Samuel Smith is known for it's stouts for a reason I guess. A lot of craft brewers are using this style in their bourbon/casked-aged beers that seem to be a fad recently and a ton of them just end of a mess and can be downright offensive tasting for me. That's not the case here at all at least.

Dogfish Head Red & White - This is a unique one. It takes the popular Belgian Witbier style (Blue Moon, Allagash White, Hoegaarden) and puts a spin on it by fermenting it with Pinot Noir juice. Expect a bright flavor, the spicy and citrus flavor you get from a Witbier. You definitely get the fruitiness of a wine from this; the warming of a red wine maybe? It has really perfect carbonation though. All that being said, it's sweet. Maybe a bit too sweet but it's brewed well and I don't mind it. With 10% ABV, it doesn't feel particularly heavy aside from the warmth though.
