    If I wanted to get trashed I'd buy cheap beer and drink it fast. That's not really the point of good beer though.

    They aren't warm when I start. The issue is the size of the can. Bottom 1/8th or so is always warmish.

    I can give you some serious answers and solutions but it seems you are trolling with your responses.

    I can honestly say I have no idea what you're talking about. I don't buy good beer to chug it like a college kid. I assumed this was standard among discerning adults. If I drink a 12 ounce can, it's a non issue. 16 ounce cans are warm by the time I'm finishing them which is a complete turnoff.

    If I wanted to get trashed, I'd drink whiskey, not beer.

    Also, pretty sure most people can drink a pint in a reasonable amount of time.

    A lot of people also just take the warm bottom as a fact of life. I won't tolerate warm drinks.

    Tonight's poison, a beer like not many others, a tasty balance between toasted hops and malt.

    [​IMG]
    Brewed by:
    Hoyne Brewing Co.
    British Columbia, Canada
    hoynebrewing.ca

    Style:American Brown Ale

    Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

    Availability: Year-round

    Notes / Commercial Description:
    Deep inside the Hadron Collider physicists hurtle sub-atomic particles with lightning speed on a collision course with each other. They do so in the pursuit of pure science, in the hope of one day being able to unlock the mystery of the elusive unseen fabric upon which our universe is embroidered: Dark Matter.
    Dark Matter | Hoyne Brewing Co.


    Hoyne Brewing Co. – Dark Matter Review
    The Dark Matter pours a deep chocolate brown colour with a thick and frothy head which leaves significant lacing on the glass’s sides. This beer smells of a chocolate and nut with a solid malt base and a touch of northwest hops to go with it. The taste starts off very smooth and light then a chocolate flavour starts to take over. This chocolate taste melds into a strong coffee finish that leaves the mouth waiting for more. Hoyne labels this beer as “Definitely not a stout, far from a porter, hardly a brown ale.” While this doesn’t leave a lot of options the taste resembles somewhere between a Brown ale and a Porter but not really either specifically. This beer has great dark flavour but tastes with the ease of a much lighter beer.

    Alcohol – 5.3%
    Size – 650ml bottles

    I can't stand warm beer either. If I get to the bottom of the can/bottle and it's warm, it's getting poured out. But that doesn't happen often. I don't chug beer, but I drink it fast enough that it doesn't get warm.

    This is all I have right now.
    Looks like I'm a fan of IPA.

    This one is interesting.
    Yes...it's pink. It's a cider though.

    I'd buy it based on can art alone.

    Best time of year for craft beer if you ignore the pumpkin garbage.

    Wet hops, DIPAs, and BA stuff everywhere.

    That stuff is meant to keep homeless people alive in winter. I don't think regular folk are supposed to drink it...

    Fuck, pumpkin beers suck balls.

    Wet hops are delicious.

    I made the mistake of buying one once, it nearly put me off pumpkin anything forever. Some breweries refuse to make it and I like those breweries.

    I think I've moved to utopia here, there's 5 active breweries with awesome tasting rooms here and another 2 about to open and that's just in San Jose. It's a shame @Tang@Tang is just a pothead, he's really missing out. I don't think I would have met anyone here if it weren't for decent beer.
