Re: What're you drinking right now?

Puttered around the cellar and pulled out a Rochefort 8, bottled on Sept. 14, 2005. More of a 10 person, so I'll have to hunt for my oldest bottle of that to see how they compare. At the moment, I'm under the impression I would've been happier cracking this open a couple of years ago, but it's stil...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Omnipollo Prodromus. For some reason I was expecting much sweeter, but there is a bitterness here that I find very appealing. My recollection of this is that is was very sweet, matching the desert flavour description on the can. My measure of a very sweet beer is that I would have been happier pour...

Re: Peppered beers

Thanks for the suggestions; hope to be hitting GLB & BB this week. Will probably hit the 'BO too for the Honey Habanero, even though honeyed beers aren't my fave.

Peppered beers

Beers with peppers have always been scarce in these parts, and I'm not in touch with the local scene as much as I used to be: what's going 'round these days besides Bandit's Cake Monster (choco porter with habanero)? And is there anything looming on the horizon that I ought be on the lookout for?

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

This is currently on shelves at the 'BO. If you thought the old art for Naughty Neighbour was sexist....

For some reason, I can't help but think of Douglas Adams and the Shoe Event Horizon. :wink:

Re: Where is my Maudite, Unibroue?

Just as a heads-up, the Beer Store now has Unibroue's Winter Collection, which has two each of Blonde De L'Enfer, Maudite, Don De Dieu, Blonde De Chambly, Trois Pistoles, and La Fin Du Monde.

Would that Trois Pistoles be more regularly available here...

Re: LCBO Autumn, Halloween and Ontario Craft Beers 2018 Release

Has the Fuller's Russian Imperial Stout come & gone already? The LCBO listing gives it a release date of September 18th, and there seems to be none in the system.

Re: Peter Lopaty

Peter was also my 1st supplier for a private order, and I can still vividly recall walking into the foyer of his house surrounded by boxes and boxes of Rogue. Not every attempt to place an order was successful, but I did enjoy being able to chat with the man while picking up some fine ales. That's s...
