St. Bernardus Abt 12

Brouwerij St Bernardus

Belgium

I can tell you only one thing: poured liberally all over the inside of my suitcase, soaking it's wonderful malted grains, hops, yeast and water all over 3 of my shirts, coating everything in its aroma, I can say that it smelled great. I wanted to just sit there and soak it all in for hours. Now, this may seem like an unusual way to try a beer, and I agree! Thanks to the morons at TSA, I was unable to actually drink this beer. You see, those jackasses searched my bag while I was transporting this from NJ, unwrapped the secure padding which was around this beer, and just plunked it back in the bag, without putting it back inside its cushion. So, while transporting, it rattled against another bottle and shattered, leaving me with nothing but the memory of the aroma, and a deep, bitter, anger against the TSA for being so god-damned careless. Stay in school folks. You might end up checking luggage for the TSA someday.
