How's the beer in Romania?

I tried 6 (if I remember correctly) types - all of them were very good. But I'm not so sphisticated as it goes for beers - I've always prefered wine.

I enjoy both, but wine is usually more interesting.

Then you haven't tasted proper kind of beer. The myriad of tastes one can find from different kinds of beer is actually larger than in wine.
I will stay on topic and at this time don't wish to respond to some baseless things you have stated in your post.  Responding to those will just derail the discussion and take it off topic. The topic of this discussion is about the visit of two Metropolitans from the Indian Orthodox Church to the Syriac Patriarchate ..

You state that you were compelled to go negative because of some spin..
Spin # 1 :  The MOC turned down the patriarchs invitation to come to Beirut and the insinuation was of the bad faith displayed by the MOC. 

Nobody has seen the text of the so called invitation so one does not know what the text said.  In any case 2 Metropolitans with the permission of the Catholicos traveled to Beirut and met the Patriarch. Even if it were an unofficial meeting what was the harm?

The following is a speech made by H.G Mathews Mar Severious of the MOC who till recently was serving as the secretary of the MOC Synod.   I have already provided an English translation in the previous post. If you believe I have not done justice in my translation; please point it out and I will stand corrected.

This speech was made after the visit of Mar Nicholovas and Mar Athanasious to visit the Patriarch.  In the above speech H.G Mathews Mar Severious very clearly states what the invitation letter from the Patriarch stated; what the official response of the MOC Synod was to the invitation and how the MOC views the visit of the two Bishops.  After listing to this, tell us if Spin #1 that you are referring to above is actually a spin or a fact .

Jack Daniels and Coke Zero.  Decent kick without as much sugar.  Prior to that some Ethiopian coffee from the Yirgacheffe region.  Great coffeee; better than any Italian I've had.

Caracu stout beer. My birthday's next Sunday, I've bought some beer for the party and couldn't resist opening at least one up. I've also started sipping on the St. George green absynthe I bought in NY.

That's what you can do once you have achieved a sufficiently high level of theosis.

Just be careful, demons are capable of doing similar things!
