Thanks, have had three Peche Mortel probably about 100 times. It really is excellent. Does the LCBO carry the bourbon-barrel-aged version?
I actually quite like the Brooklyn but have never heard of the Lava, either, so will give that a try. I picked up the Nogne 100 and Flying Monkeys BNL last night. Did not care for the Nogne (unpleasant soapy taste on the midpalate) and will have to try the BNL.
I just moved back to Toronto after 2 years in NYC...will have to recalibrate my beer tastes and rebuild my beer knowledge. I was a huge fan of California breweries (Ballast Point, Stone, North Coast, Green Flash) and none of that shit makes it up here. Ontario breweries still can't make a proper IPA.
