Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

Just a quick explanation... The Flemmish are a sarcastic lot who joke around quite a bit. The "Mad Bitch" was actually a former employee of theirs. She's depicted on the label. So the name isn't as awful as it appears. Aging: originally, Kris told people that Dulle Teve is best fresh. We ...

Re: LCBO Online Exclusives

De Dolle Oerbier and Dulle Teve, by the single bottle. Cheers! Nice!! I love all the De Dolle beers very much - even especially these two. I believe anyone who thinks Chimay Rouge defines a particular style should def try Oerbier. DULLE TEVE Dulle Teve means Mad Bitch, but the US goverment does not...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Duvel. A classic. It truly stands the test of time and is always one of the world's great beers, regardless of the flux, fads and fickleness of the beer market at the time. I forgot a few 750ml bottles for a while, the stuff ages like a champ, kind of winelike. Plus the cool glass with it! Incident...

Ueriger and Collective No. 12

IPA No. 12. Quite nice... That said, $4.95 for a non double IPA seems steep... the haze fatigue is real :o Yea I'm pretty over it for the most part, especially once you go north of $4.00... Well new hazy IPAs are always fun to try, but I agree LITC and a few others (Greenwood, Sunsplit) cover 95% o...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

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! LOL Come on man, you've been an admin on BT how long now? (Thanks for your efforts BTW...) * edit * I've had excellent result...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Fullers Imperial Stout from last year, the rose petal florals have melded very well but its still just in there. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/pJCRSOT3sbs/maxresdefault.jpg Also had a recent (Interbrau SpA) Thomas Hardy's ale, while it's a very agreeable quaff I don't think it has nearly the character of t...

Cellar time

Bellwoods Skeleton Key from its first (?) 2014 bottling. Holy cow! Deeply rich dried black fruit / tangy fruit leather, lightly smoky roast, nutty espresso and chocolate, rooty kola spice, the spicy oak barrel and warming barrel rum contributing a lovely unifying complexity. Must go by the bottle sh...

Re: Online order problems...

I've done 5-10 store pick ups and the product was always correct. The pick up process on the other hand is a terrible... One store kindly offered to put a hold on a case for me, and then called me to come get it any time - but when I arrived that same day, they said it was still in the pallet and t...

Re: Ontario Craft Beer, Imports and Pumpkin Beers at the LCBO (Fall 2019)

It's a coffee bean and apricot pit IS (pretty sure it's normally called a stout despite what the LCBO says) I find that interesting. Apricot pits? Like, not the fruit? Some fruit pits like those of apricot impart a distinct almond flavor. Remember that coffee 'beans' (& cocoa bean) are actually...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

... I sincerely believe that a moral and intellectual laziness has taken root in the west. We pick the low hanging fruit not because it's a precursor to greater change, but because it requires little actual effort or sacrifice... We have an indolent 'fake outrage culture', in part because we live i...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

...if we can't get basic civility into a simple first world pleasure like craft beer... ^^ I wonder who ever says we can't or don't. But the right to be uncivil + the often negative or 'offended' social response to it are both free speech. Both are important to this process. An errant brewery will ...

What're you Malty Tasking right now?

Cigar City Madura Brown Ale - nice bready dark malts, almost a hint of umami/salt. Leans into Stout territory by its generosity. Must Kuld Porter - an actual Baltic Baltic Porter? Not really. Definitely reminds me of Scandinavian stouts and porters. Has some dry herbals, hints of earth, minerality, ...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

Still not sure the name of the beer is the problem here. A few years ago, I remember reading about a high school that banned the playing of Billy Idol's Mony Mony at the school dances. It was clearly stressed that it wasn't the song itself that was the problem, but the response it elicited (if you ...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

Different slant on the issue for Nine Locks Brewing in Nova Scotia. It's not the label that is the problem, but the beer name (Dirty Blonde) and marketing. I'm going to plant my ass on the fence regarding this one. I'm not sure how hair colour (or malt colour) has to be viewed as sexist. But I'm gu...
