    Is it brewed from elephant poo? It certainly tastes like it.

    Agreed, the quality of the glass belied the quality of the drink. Though drunkenly dropping it at the feet of the waiter did look like a comment on the beer.

    32% :-/ how are you still alive after 6?!?! Did you have liver / kidney problems before, if not you do now!

    degree assignment due next monday, so been up late most nights studying before completing it this weekend.

    That, plus hayfever plus some damned flu-like bug i picked up a couple weeks ago that is still lingering, means I wake up every morning feeling like i've had a dozen carlsberg the night before, despite the fact i've had nothing stronger than a can of pepsi max or a glass of blackcurrant squash!

    I can normally drink carlsberg if I have to, but myself I prefer german lagers. The Reinheitsgebot (and yes I really do know that word!) means you get the nice hoppy drink with none of the junk.

    My old local had Warsteiner on tap (I miss it, but parents still living there, so I pop down there occasionally), lovely stuff, on the strong side for lager, but it's easier on the system (just not so light on the head the next morning if you have a few!)

    I think my liver resembles a house brick. That's 10 years of drinking Jack Daniels for you :-/

    I did have the hangover from hell for two days afterwards.

    BBC News - 'World's strongest' beer with 32% strength launched

    A warning on the label states: "This is an extremely strong beer; it should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. In exactly the same manner that you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost."

    At 30 a bottle as well?

    Think I'll stick to my grey goose....

    I'm a Peroni man myself. A nice cold peroni in the sun is just bliss.

    That was 6 over the course of an evening and in to the wee hours - apparently my FaceBork IM posts became quite bizarre after the fourth bottle - turned into a bit of a rant about all sorts of jubberish. I think I fell asleep for a time and woke up with the imprint of the keyboard on my forehead....

    I sat down last night with an Absolut Raspberry Vodka, ice and lemonade, I feel a few coming on tonight as well! I can't drink beer/lager - unfortunately!

    I'll drink anything if its going, but if I have a choice then Becks, Krombacher or any german/czech lagers bottled. If im down the pub then generaly marstons smooth from my local, or any of the guest ales. Strong drink of choice is a single malt or nice brandy for 1 or 2, but if im out on the town then vodka + mixer all the way (supplemented with sambuca/tequila shots and Jager bombs - love em )

    Oh, and gin and tonics for a summer afternoon or 'warm up' before going out.

    Just a few pints of London Pride for me last night (not my favourite, but the best available in the local).

    Tonight I'll be sampling Single Malt Whiskey from my recent hols to Scotland! I have Ben Nevis 10 yr old, Glenfiddich 12 year old and Tomatin 10 year old. Very nice stuff!!
