Article in today's Wall Street Journal about something I won't be drinking: -- probably goes well with durian

CHICAGO—For most drinkers, the first taste of Jeppson's Malört tends to be the last.

"I've heard everything, from it tastes like earwax to Band-Aids to burnt hair," said Ian Penrose, a bartender at Rocking Horse in the city's hip Logan Square neighborhood.

Taste isn't the only problem for the 80-year-old, gold-colored spirit made from a Swedish recipe. Jeppson's Malört can't be found outside of Chicago and a few suburbs. By the company's own admission, its Malört is enjoyed by only one out of every 49 drinkers who try it. Even the company's owner, Pat Gabelick, a 69-year-old retired secretary who runs the company out of her condo on Lake Shore Drive, rarely drinks it.

Still, the liquor is finding a growing following among Chicagoans as a kind of badge of honor. A shot of it is a way to punish a drinking buddy or out-of-towner. A page on the website Flickr is dedicated to photos of people with sour looks on their faces after sampling Malört for the first time. Mixologists like the challenge of making Malört's bitter flavor somewhat enjoyable.

not much wine here?

I confess an unretained passion for reds from the Roussillon region. Goes very well with ECM music..

Yesterday consumed a bottle of Hennessy. For medicine. I don't have the taste for vines, I don't understand it. It knocks me down for a while.

Enjoying a Saison Dupont - Farmhouse ale. Delicious at any time. My local store has this available and I am much appreciative. Add some table water cracker (with cracked pepper) and some cheese. You can find practical perspective on matters corporeal or otherwise. Cheers!

180Lb (15 gal) carbouy: Oatmeal Stout w Dark Chocolate (Hershy's SD + Meiji Black), Sour Cherries (Turkish), and Dr Pepper.
Also some victory malt and flaked barley thing going on in there somewhere... Random amber malt extracts, I don't remember...
Was a big blend of 5gal mistakes, the final 5gal adjusted to salvage the first two (originally: too chocolaty, and too bitter).
Both had an excess of coffee intensity from Munton's chocolate malt (not actual coffee) that needed to be toned down a bit...

I could never reproduce it, but its a definite winner now.
Like Tubelab said, turn it up till it explodes then back down a bit. His theory seems to work for beer anyway...
