I have a theory, if a drink doesnt taste good at room temp it doesnt actually taste good.
Ah, now you Gents are speaking my language. All that physics and engineering goes over my head.
Unfortunately, although I love a handcrafted beer, beer has ceased to be kind to me in my dotage. A nice red burgundy, or, as Mr. Glenn says above, a supple small batch bourbon is how I get my pleasure these days. I'm particularly fond of Colonel Taylor small batch. Although it's owned by Buffalo Trace, the folks who put it together know bourbon whiskey.
