On nitro. This beer always benefits from a bit of age, the flavours melding together so well. So good but I always enjoy this more in the bottle as it delivers more of the unique charred wood that makes this beer Olympic for me. Again, no complaints here.
For the style, this is nice. Malty, sure, but I knew what I was in for. The extra hop count balances the sweetness and makes it more palatable. Extra points for the style though once is enough for me. Post-playoff game. Decisive win. Gotta keep it going.Earned the New Brew Thursday (Level 50) badge! Earned the Tower of Beer (Level 22) badge!
An expanding frothy head with sticky marshmallow lacing as you drink it. Mild coffee aroma. A rich strong stout with oak notes and a slow lingering sherry heat. I thought I should open this quickly due to the coffee but it’s already quiet so no rush.
Grapefruit pith and resin aromas. Prickly grapefruit flavor that delivers a little more juice and a little less malt than some of the Singlecut beers I’ve been having lately, for a comparable neighbourly quality beer. Probably my fave in this series yet.Earned the For the Can (Level 74) badge!
Darker in the glass than I was expecting. Light fruity esters and Belgian yeast with manageable vinegar notes and hints of oak. Funky and complex, this almost comes across as a Flanders brown ale. Pairing very well with butternut squash soup and Parmesan.
Fluffy head. Soft approach. Grapefruit pith with a strong, residual bitterness on the back. Extremely quaffable for being so bitter. Refreshing. Pairing well with reheated Five Guys Cajun fries and soaking up that heat. Nicely done, LF. Thank you, AD M.
It’s been over 2 years since i’ve had this and it’s holding strong, as expected. Dark cocoa, firm bitterness, enough to offset the sultry cognac sweetness. Easily one of the best Canadian beers ever. Thanks for the idea, Bebo!
Tart, delicate plums in a light Saison that continues to delight the whole way through no matter how slowly you drink it. Rarely could I solo a big bottle of the style & love it to the last drop. Paired with indoor and outdoor chores. Thank you, Robert P.
