And another interesting one, a new Trappist brewery, Mount Saint Bernard Abbey in Leicestershire England, has a 7.4% dubbel ale Tynt Meadow coming to LCBO.

Nice! I think Tynt Meadow and Spencer are the only Trappist breweries I've yet to try, this one sounds like it will be particularly unique compared to your typical abbey styles.

A whole bunch of other interesting listings just showed up as well; Godspeed's Polotmavý Ležák 11° Amber, Cranberry Tangerine Jelly King, Citra Monogamy- I'm always happy to see more Bellwoods and Godspeed in the LCBO.

Wish that we could get Samuel Smiths Winter Welcome back again since it has been two years since. Drive from Ottawa to spend 20 min in Niagara Falls NY to get three bottles and then flipping nonsense with Covid testing on return even though I am triple vaxxed. The bottles are actually last years brew 2020-2021 on the label which is OK because I was missing that in my collection and hope I can get this years later. Looking forward at least to the I&G Vanishing Point #5 when it gets out of Whitby

I just noticed this beer and bought a few. Does it taste comparable to anything else you've had? I have yet to drink one.

Sipping Tynt Meadow right now. This is definitely English, with a bitter hop edge and some chocolate notes bordering on stout territory. Drinks like a dubbel but I can’t think of anything quite like it.

I was startled yesterday to find Trappistes Rochefort Tripel in the LCBO yesterday. I missed the announcement on lcbo.watch but was happy to see it!
