How many of you guy's can HONESTLY tell me you enjoy the flavor of any alcohol drink? I know the "buzz" is what makes everything enjoyable but the taste is what I'm wondering about. My Dad said for years when I was 12 or so that beer is an acquired taste and when I get older I would appreciate the taste. Well, the flavor of any alcohol is still yucky but the "buzz" is fine.

Cool thread by the way.

them is fightin' words!

while i will admit there are some awful tasting beers and liquors, you can find ones that taste very pleasant. check out this FULL thread, and you will get TONS of suggestions for beer and liquor, most with detailed descriptions. go buy you one, and see what you think!

and HONESTLY, i enjoy the flavor, and the "buzz".

Yo! The trick (other than knock you on your ass type drinks such as a Zombie, etc.) is high quality liquor. It also helps, believe it or not, to drink it out of the appropriate glass at the appropriate temperature in the appropriate manner. In other words, Congac tastes terrible if you gulp it.

I don't like most beers, however, so there we are.

Speaking of port. (On of my favorite drinks...)

When we were in the Paso Robles area, we stopped by a vineyard called Justin. They had a port-style wine called Obtuse that was terrific. I bought a bottle for myself and another as a gift for a friend. Yummy stuff.

Since you've got me on the subject of dessert wines...

This is another amazing treat. Grab a bottle or two. The smell alone is worth the price of admission. A glass of this after a nice meal, or better yet alone late at night.

Yet another idea...this with some nice dark chocolate is terrific. You'll swear your drinking a chocolate covered cherry.

Yeah...some alcohol tastes very good.

OK...one more recommendation and then I'll let you guys go back to your beer talk.

This great red even had Roger smiling, and he doesn't usually like red wine. Very smooth. A little pricier than most wine we buy though.

Man, I can't believe I forgot about the wines and fortified wines. Those are delicious if done right!

57 bottles of liquor in various states of disrepair, including some homemade cordials (probably 10 bottles)
21 bottles of wine/port/champagne
2 bottles of beer (probably quite skunky by now.)
1 bottle of lambic.

Do I win yet?
