Fullers IIPA

... go to the store, ask them to bring you in a case of the beer you are after, return the portion of the case you dont want once the product comes in That worked. My local has put it in their order book for me and it should be here in a week or so. Thanks for the tip. Of course you may want to 're...

Perrin Les Christins Vacqueyras 2016

Famille Perrin Les Christins Vacqueyras 2016 Here is another nice little Southern Rhône red. This one is a Vacqueyras AOC and a little more berry-bramble focused with a tinge of hot-climate ripeness therefore not as immediately, obviously dry as the Cayran Cotes-du-Rhône. But lots of structure and ...

Camille Cayran Chêne Noir 2017 Cairanne Rhône blend

Camille Cayran Cave de Cairanne Le Chêne Noir 2017 Aromas are dark floral and densely fruity-sweet, some cherry sour. Taste opens rather full and fruity, with some rusticity and could really use some air to find extra dryness and integration. Some peppery herbs grab the palate and the sweet red che...

Arduini Classico Sup. Valpolicella Ripasso 2017

Luciano Arduini Classico Superiore Valpolicella Ripasso 2017 That Luca Marone rating though... LOL though I usually bypass his advice/patently hyped ratings this N Italy red looked like a nice one to try despite. This is a fairly dense weighty Valpolicella style but not a ton of dried Amarone-like ...

Re: Technical question about gut bacteria...

Homemade yogurt is a really healthy & tasty gut support food, and the best way is to incubate it in the oven for 12 hours. VERY high levels of beneficial cultures, low lactose, enjoyably tart. You just need some very clean jars with lids, the milk & starter and the basic method > google 'ove...

Fullers imperial IPA

Glad I'm not the only one. I actually drank the one bottle over two days, using a champagne stopper to preserve the CO2... still quite something, it's very stunning in as you say a British way, it's a powerful beer and one it's worth buying again and cellaring some to develop for a few to several ye...

Fullers IIPA

Fullers Imperial IPA — Really nice beast of an ale. Firm Euro hops and massive malt. Fruity, bready, herbal, sweet and bitter. In its latest effort at over-packaging an ultra premium beer, Fullers triumphs with the darkest amber ale you've ever seen. Densely flavorful, exudes richness and a hop oil...

Dogfish DIPAs

or this? Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA LCBO is putting it through their trademarked cellaring program to ensure the vintage reaches peak flavour :wink: Although this ale does stand up to some careless ageing, and it would still be nice to get it late I have some doubts we'll see it. The one time I had...

Bardouin Pastis (no ice just water today)

Henri Bardouin Pastis As ^ described, this tipple from Provence is not just a traditional Pastis but has much more varied & complex spice additions. It's really good! A bottle goes a long way (and with 45% ABV it keeps for years.) I like to pour this in small glasses over chunks of ice and a fe...

Wow, it's really encouraging so far! ;-)

Still I feel compelled to give it the old 'college try' to begin to educate my palate in an extremely low financial / volume commitment scenario. This will be cool... Cheers.

Sang Royale and Vitis Noble

Cascade Vitis Noble and Sang Royal are $8 off (~$18) at Weston/401 location, possibly elsewhere too as Cascade a proved slow-moving at regular prices here. Weston Crossroads is a great store for clearouts, but these two items are still full list price in my area. These are also Cascade's two highes...

CA Sour Blueberry coco nibs

Blueberry, sour & cocoa? That sounds awful. But it's a good brewery so I guess I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Someone please try one and report back! Well Craig you're kind of half right, the cocoa nibs in this fine effort just get in the way of the blueberry-sour ale harmon...
