W.C. Fields said something to the effect that he'd rather have 2 women at 20 years old than one at 40. On a slightly related note, do you normally prefer two 5% stouts over nursing a RIS, or are you into the really intense experience. As for me, I would never drink anything over 8% in a social situation (well I have, but I've learned from it). If I am to drink a KBS, I'll do it in the privacy of my own home or on the rare opportunity to drink with a real bear lover. I know the whales get the talk around here, but is that what everybody here is drinking in an ordinary session? As much as I love some of the 10% beers, I leave them for special occasions.
