Re: New Arrivals at LCBO & TBS

ügener Insel Brauerei Baltic Ale is on shelves. I don't think this was part of a seasonal release. It's definitively a solid golden Belgian ale, fruity, spicy, pretty good. Above average packaging.

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

I ordered a bottle of Fantome HIver and Dark White last night. How do these beers take to cellaring?
Dark White sounds like something I might want to save for Christmas 2020.

Also missing "13332 Bohemian Black Lager - 500mL - Czech Republic". Unless the SKU was switched and this was Czechvar Dark Lager, which happens to be discounted right now.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Lindemans Cuvée René 2017 — Goes great with grilled salmon. Bone dry, funky, white grape/green apple. I've been grabbing these each year since 2015 and have an nice little collection. And it's somehow inflation proof at $6 a bottle again this year.

Re: LCBO Lucky Finds

The Vitus Nobel is marked down via a hand written label tied to the neck which only says “Cascade.” It has the original price wrong, so the sale price is actually $16.45. The Sang Royal have no such labels, clearly an oversight, which was corrected for me, via a price override.

Re: LCBO Lucky Finds

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.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Bell's Blackbeard's Bear Hug (rum barrel aged IS with cinnamon, vanilla and coconut) — Nose is molasses and rum barrel with a coconut/cinnamon flourish. All the flavours are perfectly integrated and it’s a bit warming on the way down at 14.4% abv. Cinnamon specks float on top of the beer and leave a...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

De Dolle Oerbier and Dulle Teve — Both lived up to the hype. Oerbier is world class and has me thinking about pulling quads out of the cellar. Dulle Teve is perhaps the most potent tripel I've had. In many ways (including abv) it drinks like a quad. Both gushed mildly out of the bottle.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Blood Brothers Unify or Die — Love drinking this one around the holidays. Medium-full bodied, full of cinnamon/coffee stouty goodness, a touch over carbonated, but remedied with some in-glass agitation. This reminds me, I must go fetch some Balam before it's gone.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

De Moersleutel Dolle Dries 2 — My first pit beer. Nice soft mouthfeel, loads of coffee and a lingering unique savoury-sourish-bitter flavour which I assume is from the apricot pits. Interestingly if you Google apricot pits, you’ll learn they are toxic in large quantities. Some quacks have been selli...

Re: Online order problems...

If I go into a store knowing they have stock of something, but can't find it, almost always I get good service when I ask someone about it. I've had situations where they went out back for quite a while and finally found what I wanted. It helps to show them that the website is showing stock at thei...

Re: Online order problems...

I've done 5-10 store pickups and the product was always correct. The pickup process on the other hand is terrible. When I present with my order confirmation email I am met with a combination of confusion/skepticism/annoyance. It's 5-10 mins of asking others what to do. Much confusion about whether i...
