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...

Thanks. Sounds like it might be too sour for me... but maybe I'll pick on up to share

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

Anyone try Rodenbach Alexander?

I am debating getting this vs. more Caractère Rouge.

Caractère Rouge: $8.70, 100% aged beer (30 months) with cherries, raspberries and cranberries, 7% abv
Alexander: $11.95, 66% aged (24 months) with cheeries, 5.6% abv

For all intents and purposes this is a hoppy barley wine. I like the hop bitterness, but even if it fades, this will still be a nice ale to drink in a decade.

Re: Port Huron MI

I had someone pick me up some goods from Wolverine Market and it was a very nice experience. They have all their stock listed on their website and Untapped. Lots of Odd Sides, Epic and other great stuff from Michigan an beyond. You can see what was recently added on Untappd to discern freshness. I c...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Fullers Imperial IPA — Really nice beast of an ale. Firm Euro hops and massive malt. Fruity, bready, herbal, sweet and bitter.

Re: Amsterdam Brewery

Anyone have any insight into this year's Double Tempest? Is it still available? Price? How does it compare to last year's batch? UPDATE: It is still available at Esandar Dr., $16.95 per bottle. It was unavailable for sample :( but the clerk said this batch is especially chocolatey. And they have can...

Re: Bandit Brewery

It was my first visit here and I had flight. Juicebox IPA was a little thin at 5.5%, but good. Orage IIPA was on point, super dank. The two dark beers (Cake Monster Habanero and Mad Batter) were severely lacking.

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO

There really is no rhyme or reason to pricing here. The fact we get Utopias for the equivalent of US$85 when it is minimum US$190 down south is even more confounding. Sometimes companies use high pricing to position their brands as "super premium" in a market. This could be going on here,...
