Four beers, each one in collaboration with a different brewery, including a Cognac barrel-aged Baltic Porter with Põhjala(!)

... AND at only $4.50 for shipping ($3.99+hst), its not cost prohibitive if you only wanted to order one of each ($22.95 including tax for the mix 4-pack)
as a result, while ordering a bunch of these, I also ordered Wet Hop and Surround sound: lotus (both only available from the brewery) :D

Yep, CA by far has the best shipping price I've seen (outside of free local delivery options offered by some breweries). Ordered the 4-pack plus the glass yesterday, looking forward to them.

I picked up the Origins of Darkness mix pack at the new Toronto store last night. I tried the Almond Milk/Coffee variant and it was ... nothing special. Not a good balance as the coffee steamrolled over the other flavours. The Untappd reviews so far seem to reflect my experience.

I just tried the Cognac Barrel/Plums and deem it as the worst of the bunch. But, hey, more positive reviews are turning up:

the latest (#15) is an exact re-make of #5, which was the best of the series!

I thought 13(especially) and 14 were some of the best of the series......and if 15 is an exact remake of 5, will be great also.

I generally like this series, but they did lose me with a bunch. I think they were #6 to #12. Fruit and lactose additions just don't appeal to me.
#15 is drinking nice.
Brands are for cattle.
Fans are cash cows.
The herd will consume until consumed.
