Online order problems...

So, I’ve done three online orders, one for home delivery and two for store delivery. The home delivery went off without a hitch. The first store delivery resulted in me getting a nice case of Spanish wine instead of the beer I ordered. Turns out they screwed up the paperwork, which we eventually sor...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Hitachino Nest Nipponia, which was part of an online order. It’s classified as an Imperial Pilsner, but I’m getting more Barley Wine in the nose, taste and body. Noticed that the best before date is December 21, 2019, so wondering when this beer was actually produced and what changes may have occurr...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

La Trappe Quad. Definitely a step below Rochefort 10 and Westy 12 but a very good quad nonetheless. I agree with this assessment. However, if you get the chance to age it 4 or 5 years, it improves dramatically. It becomes more complex. that reminds me.. I don't think St. Bernardus sent us the Chris...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

I'm not dismissing the importance or truth of what you are saying. People have all sorts of variations of ability to change things through their decisions. Yes this discussion is about picking off the easy ones, like "hmmm, I have a choice of 20 IPAs in front of me at the LCB0 (definitely not a...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

Perhaps my perspective is somewhat formed by places I have visited/lived in, but I find this issue tedious, relatively meaningless and a very slippery slope for any consumer of anything. It's the moral indignation factor and how selectively it is applied that bothers me about this and other related ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

I too am drinking a Fuller's IIPA. This is absolutely terrific. The only complaint is the pepper that they added is a little too strong for me. I am going to try and find more of this. This one hasn’t made it to my local yet and is currently unavailable for online purchase. Here’s hoping something ...

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. That’s interesting. I’d be curious about your comparison between the O...

Re: Peppered beers

I don’t know if you can find this but I once had one from MilleVertus called Poivrote, which was quite good as I recall.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Wellington Imperial Russian Stout. Pick up a few of these every now and then. Rich, relatively creamy texture and very smooth. I really like this one.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Fuller’s Vintage Ale, 2019 Edition. Exceptional as always. While the LCBO Christmas release does lean heavily on repetition, in the case of the Fuller’s I hope they keep repeating. would love to see the imperial stout on an annual basis as well Agreed, I bought a dozen of the Imperial Stout last ye...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Nickel Brook Glory & Gold Reserve Series 2019. Quite impressed with this and though it’s been years since I’ve had one, If memory serves it reminds me of Pauwel Kwak. Wish I had a Kwak to test my Wilco addled recollection. :wink:
