Don't think it's hit the shelves yet.

Re: Black Lab Brewery opening in East Toronto this fall

Not to dampen any enthusiasm, but I know one of the owners and asked about the Belgian focus referenced in the BlogTo article. Apparently, they just mentioned in passing that Belgian styles were among the owners' and brewer's favourites and BlogTo sort of ran with that. No real Belgian influence for...

Re: LCBO Autumn 2018 Release

The post is there, it's right above the one you just made. Maybe you just didn't see it on the second page? Nope. Still can't see it. Otherwise I'd have deleted it by now. FWIW - I got a notification yesterday that you responded to my post, but didn't (and still don't) see your original response. V...

Re: LCBO Autumn 2018 Release

I'm happy with this release. All four German beers are excellent and there are three UK imperial stouts (two new ones for me and Fuller's is one of my absolute favourites). Will happily try the Boulevard whiskey barrel aged stout as well.

Is the Van de Keizer Imperial Blond the same as the Rood?

Re: Cask Days 2017

I think the tokens have been the same for at least past three years. I've used leftovers from the previous year in the past without incident.

Re: Montreal

I'll add Le Saint-Bock to the list. Not sure why this place doesn't garner more notoriety; I've never been disappointed by their offerings.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Tried Straffe Hendrik (Brugs) Quad the other night and absolutely loved it. It might be an unpopular opinion but I would place it above St Bernardus and Rochefort 10 (some bottles I've found to be better than others). This is outstanding, I'm placing SH Brugs Quad right between Rochefort 10 and Wes...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Too many to count from a recent brief (but fulfilling) trip to Chicago, so I'll just list the highlights:

Allagash Curieux
Boulder Shake Chocolate Porter
Firestone Mocha Merlin
Surly Darkness (2012)
Revolution Coup d'Etat
Revolution Straight Jacket
Revolution Deth's Tar

Re: Chicago

I was in Chicago during the last weekend in April for a work function. I was stationed right downtown, with limited free time to do some exploring so I thought it was worth reporting back on a couple of venues that are closer to the core and worth a look if anyone finds themselves in a similar posit...

Re: LCBO Winter Release 2017

Did I miss something or are we still waiting on a few beers to get released? Mackroken, Komes Baltic Porter, Cuvee du Chateau - any sign of these? I'm not overly moved by the spring or summer releases so some staggering on what was (IMO) a very strong winter release isn't a bad thing, as long as the...

Re: LCBO Summer 2018 Craft Beer Release

Not a particularly exciting release. Saison Dupont is always a great value, but still have a few stashed away from last summer. Hennepin is great but the larger format is a drag. Will likely revisit Tank 7, though a single 4-pack is probably more than enough. I went a bit overboard with the Fall, Ho...

KBS 2018 - on tap at Volo last night.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

I picked up 6 Abbaye des Rocs today, they had a sticker over the label stating 10.3% abv! As I said in a previous post, this 100 rated beer, imported from Belgium, for $6.20/750mL must be one of the best values ever. Also got a Straffe quad, but declined the $20 Deus Brut. I also passed on the Deus...

Re: Who needs Pinot Noir to make a stew

... And at that price a bottle I can still justify opening one any time, if it is not finished all at once I can easily stopper the bottle & enjoy over the next day or two. This strategy is something I have heard you mention frequently, but I have never had the guts to try (aside from uncarbona...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Birrificio Birranova - Roccia Scura (Russian Imperial Stout aged in Laphroaig Quarter Cask Barrels) I spent a couple of glorious weeks last summer in Sicily (stay tuned for my review in the "Local Beer Guides"; one day I'll get around to that...) and sitting on the shelves of the Water &am...
