Double Trouble Hops and Robbers Pineapple IPA

Tastes more like peach than pineapple to me.

Fat Tire Amber Ale, can from LCBO. Really liking this one! Nice hop profile.

Godspeed Svetly Lezak 12º, oh wow this is just in another league of complexity. Hoping Bim will bring this Czech-style beauty back next summer.

Tuesday:
2018 Fuller's Imperial Stout. Classic British style, almost fruity profile and the tamer rose petals from this bottling is even more so. They really dialed it back to feature the light roast and chocolate. It's good but kind of simple.

2017 Saint Ambroise Russian imperial Stout, holy cow this has smoke and oak, some nice depth. It is maturing insanely well. I think I prefer it to the Fullers. If you stocked up on this, you're a winner!



I had a bottle of the Fullers impy stout about a month ago....and by god was it great. Much better than the(already really good) last bottle I drank. Tastes so much like it had been BBA. I’ve got one more in the fridge that will probably get drank around Xmas time.

Belhaven Craft Pilsner (smoky!)
Bellhaven Twisted Thistle IPA

There's a mix pack at the LC right now, six different brews including a Scottish Ale, a Scottish Oat Stout and a Speyside Oak Aged Blonde Ale. Everything is Scottish as hell (ehh, the smoky, flat-tasting Pilsner didn't really grab me but the 90/~ Wee Heavy will probably make up for it.)

Flying Monkeys Doomed Youth Post Modern IPA — This is one of the best west-coast IPA's I've had in a while, super fresh.

Wellington Imperial Russian Stout. Pick up a few of these every now and then. Rich, relatively creamy texture and very smooth. I really like this one.

Beer Empties
Herald Haus Abandoned At the Altar - more acidic than Nickel Brook's Raspberry Uber but good for the money :)
Herald Haus Golden Ale
DAB Lemon Radler
Westmalle Trappist Tripel
Muskoka Harvest Ale (2019) - better than last years
Flying Monkeys Paranormal Imperial Pumpkin Ale
Collective Arts IPA No. 11
Molson Fireside - surprisingly decent Schwarzbier
Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier
Mill St. Chocolate Blossom - taste like a porter with no cherry in it and it's pretty thin
Waterloo Salted Caramel Porter - another porter missing the main ingredient.. except this one I can forgive due to the price
Fullers Vintage Ale (2019) - not nearly as good as previous years
Collective Arts Blackberry, Cherry, Lemon & Vanilla Sour - taste kinda like Cherry Lemonade! :)
Omnipollo Zodiak
Omnipollo Nebuchadnezzar
Bench Brewing Strawberry Grove - really enjoyed Citra Grove but this one I found a bit sweet. I like the Great Divide Strawberry Rhubarb Sour more :oops:
Henderson Export Stout - really nice :D

Godspeed IBUSHI - no wait, I pour that can and it is shockingly dark, foamy and red. WAAT?

It's KEKKON. They mislabeled this can of the Raspberry Sour Anniversary Ale, wow its been a lucky week!
Sorry Bim, I'm gonna drink these instead of returning them. It will be fun to see if each of them are Hellers Lager or Raspberry Sour Ale...

And just to be sure, this Svetly Lezak 12° is perfectly fine, contents as described. Whoah tasty... I'm having flashbacks to the U Medvídků Budvar beer hall in Prague...

Drinking a couple Grain and Grit beers the last few days. First time I’ve had any of their beers in over a year. Wasn’t over impressed the couple times I had their stuff...up until now.

Sweater weather coconut oatmeal stout was really tasty with a nice body and just enough coconut; perfect balance.

Berry Good sour with Lactose was super juicy berry flavours, a nice sourness that rounds out in the finish with the lactose sugar kicking in. I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would and will buy it again for sure.

In the Palms is an ipa with some fruit and lactose in it...that actually still tastes like a beer. Excellent stuff.

Invisible friend pale ale just a tasty pale ale. Reminded me a lot of Canuck.

If your in The Hammer then Grain and Grit is definitely worth a stop, as I feel they have upped their game for sure in the past year. Also...with Fairweather literally around the corner, there’s no excuse.

Wellington’s Crispy Forever. Their DDH version of Helles Yeah!
Super tasty, great hopping on this beer with the Helles undertones. I’d love for Welly to make this part of their core lineup. Probably in the top 3 beers they’ve ever made.

Komes Baltic Porter

Had one left from last time it was in the LCBO which I think was a year ago. Yummy.

Omnipollo Prodromus. For some reason I was expecting much sweeter, but there is a bitterness here that I find very appealing.
