I bought a four pack of bcbs. Not my thing. Drain poured a quarter of a bottle. It has this off putting soy sauce taste you get from a stout that has been sitting too long

Found some ouede tart tho. Can't wait

I wound up with a four-pack of the regular stuff and wouldn't you know, it's the same stuff Mrs. Thomas brought home last year. Not my bag, baby.

So I went back to the store and picked up a big bottle of Three Philosophers. That's good stuff.

Also picked up a big bottle of Maudite, and a 4-pack of Three Pistols

Well the one I was talking about was a special variety made with belgian yeast. The other one I tried wasn't as good.

Yeah, I figured. I was really upset though (not at you), because I tasted it and thought, Good Lord that tastes just like the swill from last year that we finally got rid of! After reading the can a bit more carefully, I put 2 and 2 together.

Okay, I picked up a big bottle of Unibroue Terrible. (I think that's what they called it). Not sure if I'll try it this evening or not.

Anyone in Ontario with good recs re: LCBO's current seasonal selection? (mostly Russian Imperial Stouts atm)

post #4943 of 7204
Not exactly RIS but, good stouts at the LCBO right now are Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, Peche Mortel, Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout, and Lava Smoked Imperial Stout.

Definitely go with the Peche Mortel. Very good. Sam Smith is always a fan favorite. Brooklyn is overrated and I don't know what Lava is.

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.

Tried this for the first time last night at a bar ($10 a bottle seemed reasonable). Stout's not really my thing and 15% ABV is crazy since I prefer to gulp beer, but I can see why people like this stuff so much.

Frankly, $10 ain't that bad for a bar price.

No barrel aged Peche at the LCBO, but sometimes bars and restaurants have them. Brooklyn is quite good with a few years of aging on it. I like Nogne 100 and the Nogne Two Captains is a pretty solid Imperial IPA. The 100 also ages well. Lava is a Smoked Imperial Stout from Iceland and is pretty good. Definitely worth picking up. http://bit.ly/c285kw Have you been to Bellwoods on Ossington yet? Their Hellwoods Stout is really good. Their Imperial IPA, Witchshark, will change your mind about Ontario IPAs as well. Its on par with good Imperial IPAs from the west coast US.
