You're right - the original list from the LCBO had "Krlek" which I thought was a typo so I "fixed" it. :oops:

link ^ S[ounds like a d&ecent P}ale Ale. And harder to Google!

Greg I bet you can't pronounce k:rlek or whatever it is. Should be interesting asking for it in the store.

Holy $hitballs, the Black comes in at a hefty ABV of 17.5%.

Also, according to BA, the Cream Ale is no longer brewed. Is that right? If so, I wonder how old it is?

... does Trafalgar make a Sour Cream Ale?

RB still has theMikkeller Cream Ale so it must not be retired at the moment. Interrupted production is not 'gone forever...'

Very interesting such an edgy brewer is making a traditionally mundane style, it's probably great if the 'Canadian Dream' Lager is any indication.

Good day,

Just a quick note to say that all the brewery feature beers were brewed especially for this market, so they will be fresh.

Cheers,

I'll make sure to pass on the K:rlek and the Cream Ale at those prices. I expect those to sit around as long as the Canadian Dream did.

All other prices seem fair to me.... with the IPA maybe being a little hefty.

Highly anticipating the Black and Ranger!

one of my favourite reviews of all time happens to be for black... scroll to the bottom of this page and read the review by kkipple (khiasmus's is pretty good too, just above it): http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profil ... &start=400

not sure if it's changed over the years or if it still tastes like "If your brewery caught fire and burnt to the ground, and you sat in the ashes and mingled your tears with the decimated fruits of your labor, then drank the resulting sorrow-laden tincture", but interested to read everyone else's reviews! ;)

the black sounds like a great beer to tuck away for 10 years or so..

I like this listing as it is almost all brews I have not tried yet.

Spent a night at Mikkeller bar in Copenhagen a while back...skipped over the black (had it before and learned my lesson from ordering a Struise Double Black - 26% in Antwerp).

I've had the black before and thought it was intense but very good...not crazy burnt, etc like some of those reviews.

I'm curious as well. Around Wednesday last week the Liberty Village LCBO had spots reserved on one of their end cap displays for some of them but they never put them out. Checked back today and they'd been replaced with some of the fall releases.

Still no sign of them on the LCBO website either.

The beers are currently undergoing mandatory LCBO lab testing, after that is complete we hope to see the brewery feature on the shelves.

Cheers,

Welp my optimism has faded

Why are brewery features announced before the beer is even tested?
