Lake of Bays Brewing Company by Nightwatcher Oatmeal Stout

Greg C. is drinking a Nightwatcher Oatmeal Stout by Lake of Bays Brewing Company at King & Dufferin

Nicely flavoured on-style stout - roast malt, sweet toasted cereal, moderately dry finish - but lacks fullsome body expected in the style.

Burdock by American Pale Ale W/ Citra, Vic Secret & Mosaic

Greg C. is drinking an American Pale Ale W/ Citra, Vic Secret & Mosaic by Burdock at King & Dufferin

Strong citrus character, but more floral (orange blossom) than bitter. A touch of rind in the finish, though. Well balanced, easy drinking.

Beau's All Natural Brewing Company  by Batch 5000

Greg C. is drinking a Batch 5000 by Beau's All Natural Brewing Company at King & Dufferin

1.5 years old and has held up beautifully. Drier now, mild funk, bruised apple, white pepper & hint of feety cheese. All in a good way.

Bellwoods Brewery by Skeleton Key W/ Coffee (2017)

Greg C. is drinking a Skeleton Key W/ Coffee (2017) by Bellwoods Brewery at Bellwoods Brewery

Another beer helping to restore my taste for imp stouts. The combo of coffee and all the stuff going on in the base beer is just beautiful.

Bellwoods Brewery by Skeleton Key w/ Coconut (2017)

Greg C. is drinking a Skeleton Key w/ Coconut (2017) by Bellwoods Brewery at Bellwoods Brewery

This is, indeed, coconutty. And it works well with the base beer which is a very fine & nicely flavoured Impy. But I liked the coffee more.

Bellwoods Brewery by Runes (Millennium & Simcoe)

Greg C. is drinking a Runes (Millennium & Simcoe) by Bellwoods Brewery at Bellwoods Brewery

Still on the hazy side for fussy ol’ me but I really dig the big tropical-meets-pine flavour. Lands the lingering finish as well. Respect.

Bellwoods Brewery by Paper Tiger

Greg C. is drinking a Paper Tiger by Bellwoods Brewery at Bellwoods Brewery

Really solid lager - clean, medium bodied, mild malt sweetness. Dry hopping gives big citrus notes that stay in balance. Great.

Brickworks Ciderhouse by Batch: 1904

Greg C. is drinking a Batch: 1904 by Brickworks Ciderhouse at King & Dufferin

Liked this a bit more now than my previous rating, but still find it simple and nowhere near being “dry” as the label suggests.

Bellwoods Brewery by Barn Owl Blend No. 5

Greg C. is drinking a Barn Owl Blend No. 5 by Bellwoods Brewery at King & Dufferin

Puckeringly tart cherry dominates, cutting dryly & deliciously across the palate, with backing notes of oak, raspberry & vanilla. Love it!

C'est What by Mocha Porter

Greg C. is drinking a Mocha Porter by C'est What at C'est What?

I preferred this beer - and drank a lot of it - in its original Coffee Porter iteration. But still a nice and flavourful porter.

C'est What by Al's Cask Ale

Greg C. is drinking an Al's Cask Ale by C'est What at C'est What?

Toasting C’est What on it’s 30th anniversary with a pint of the beer that was first cask ale I ever tried. A classic beer at a classic bar.

Bellwoods Brewery by Blood Orange Jelly King

Greg C. is drinking a Blood Orange Jelly King by Bellwoods Brewery at King & Dufferin

I was worried blood orange + JK might = acidity overload. And it’s certainly the sharpest & most tart JK so far. But doesn’t go overboard.

Amsterdam Brewing Company (Canada) by 2018

Greg C. is drinking a 2018 by Amsterdam Brewing Company (Canada) at King & Dufferin

All the elements of a classic Pils - honey-cracker malt, herbal hops, crisp finish - but lacks something as well. Just not quite sure what.

Blood Brothers Brewing by Abattoir (2017)

Greg C. is drinking an Abattoir (2017) by Blood Brothers Brewing at King & Dufferin

Good complexity with notes both fruity (pineapple, peach, white grape) & funky (barnyard, band-aid). Barely a hint of the 8.5%. Nicely done.

Delayed check-in - had it last night & didn’t take notes so not reviewing, just ticking.
