about any food you throw at it. but the richer the better. Sandeman Vau Port 1997 ($4.99. halt bottle. limited availability) First thing: the full bottle of this; retails for E25. Secondly, Port is not just for Christmas. and Tlllfi Stuff won't last until then anyway. USually v:ntage ports do not cerne cheap; they're the most prestigious style of the genre. capable of maturing for many years in the bottle. This is a slightly lighter, more commerCial Style of the Wine. but if; every bit a Vintage port With oodles of chocolate. plum. mocha. and raisiny notes. Spice up your next dinner party: don't wait until December.

N’lce Chouffe (Belgium. $33.99) Again. it may not be the traditional weather for a Winter warmer y I beer. but this must be tried While it’s still abOut The strongest (10%) and maltiest beer in a range that is QUlely achieVIng Cult status. Spiced With thyme and Curacao. it is an immensely complex taste. Also visit the Website and download the Happy Gnome Drinking song and Sing along after drinking a bottle.
