If I saw this on Facebook, my reply would have been "5. Belgium is full of pompous asshats. Fact." or "Why don't you post this in the Belgian Homebrewers Association forum. Oh wait...". But we're in a more civilized place, and I am taking it on good faith that this comment was a bit tongue-in-cheek.
Food for thought:
1. Belgium has the best beer in the world. Fact.
2. Belgium has the best chocolate in the world. Fact.
3. Belgium produces some of the best beer with chocolate in the world. Fact? Euh no. Guess why.
4. Belgium produces the worst commercial beer I have ever tasted in my life: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/florisgaarden-chocolat-gardenbeer/6187/ Fact.
First off, this post is silly. Second off, you are missing the point on this one. I appreciate more your posts before which were helpful. this one I might as well have seen on Facebook.
Yes, this was humongously tongue-in-cheek, but maybe not so obvious for people who don't know me or the Belgian situation very well. I apologize for the confusion, and I solemnly promise I will never do this again without the proper explanation and/or the proper tongue-in-cheek markers.
And yes, I'm a pompous asshat, but that's just a personal situation, please don't extrapolate to brave little Belgium.
But I don't alter my opinion that that chocolate beer is the vilest liquid I ever had in my mouth. But I doubt it had any real chocolate in it. I think it was a mixture of dredgings from the river Scheldt and artificial chocolate flavor.
