personal - GemStone IV Dwarven Ale language

Anyone that knows me will know that I have a love of ale. It is - you might say - somewhat of an obsession.

Hear ye! Hear ye! Midway through the year 5109, Enkryna Oldvarg-Mithskeller (Brewmaster of the Oldvarg Brewery in Zul RoramI) released just a sample of what is known as the dwarven language of ale. [And you thought we drank it just because of a alcohol content!]  Unbeknownst to the taller races, there is an untold language of ale that is understood by most dwarves. When a dwarf crafts a brew, great thought and care is taken in the selection of notes that can be experienced in the ale's aroma and flavor. Each subtle nuance communicates a message to the taster of what the brewmaster intended for his or her creation. While there are an endless number of tastes that exist within the realm of available ales, the Brewmaster chose to include a mere sample of the most popular flavors of this modern day.
