1985 Messias

Post by jdaw1 » 03:24 Wed 27 Jun 2007

Saturday 17th March 2007: chez mon père, a 1985 horizontal, consisting mostly of houses new to me (paperwork, more fancy-schmancy than that used the previous evening). Notes are even briefer: my enthusiasm for note-taking had clearly diminished. Present: JDAW MAW RAW APPW JRW RKA JFH MF SRG, and sort-of SVW. See review.

• Messias 1985
Known throughout the evening as “Naughty Boy† (do you really have to ask? Messias = Messiah = “Now, you listen here! He’s not the Messiah. He’s a very naughty boy!†). My notes said only that the aroma was terrible, but that the taste wasn’t as bad as advertised (as the “worst port† in the thread entitled Messias 85).

As a port to have after a gallon of Landlord, OK. To have as a port starting sober: no thanks.
