the 2015 xx tempest on tap at the barrel house was world class.
this year's tempest can use 1-3 years before it's in that league. but it's still excellent fresh. i may shit on the direction Amsterdam's gone in the past few years (i.e pilsnermania) but xx tempest is such an underrated beer. one of the province's best.

i bought my bottles at 3:30 and then went to the barrel house (whatever it's called) to try what i bought. ended up ordering a flight. had the:
-raspberry beer (tasted like frozen rapsberries. did not finish)
-black IPA (if you called it a porter, i'd say it's a top porter. for a black IPA, it was missing the hoppiness i'd expect)
-2015 xx tempest
-2017 xx tempest
the bartender gave me a free pour of El Jaguar.
the bill came to $10. shit, man, i call that a good event.
i had to walk around Longos for a bit to let the buzz subside.
