    That looks and sounds pretty good, wouldn't mind trying it.

    This is it, right?

    That's a killer. :( I love going in and grabbing a bunch of singles and doing a tasting with a friend or 2.

    You're right about the breweries, they're a blast. Just started checking them out late last year, and it can be a lot of fun with a lot of good brews. Great experience with some friends.

    seems so, i pretty much like that one and taste quite good. (and the Stout is better than the Guiness at my taste, tho i like both) and the best point in Spain ... that one is the most expensive i drank ... 3€ the bottle ... but in Switzerland : you double that price :laugh:

    edit: on a second thought seems a little different

    tho they probably changed the marking ... dunno :laugh:

    in Canada (at least Ontario) we get Kilkenny in 500ml cans with the nitrogen widget. I think we only get Murphy's Irish Red in Kegs. Diageo Canada also offers Smithwicks Irish Red, Harp and Dragon Stout.

    I recommend Innis & Gunn Original if you haven't tried it and can find it. one of my favourite beers. it's a 6.6% ABV Scottish Export Ale but it's more of a ESB in style with a lovely oak finish.

    Probably the same. Will look for it next time I go in. I believe I've heard that some beers may have different labeling in different countries. Can't say for certain, but perhaps it's true.

    Is that the kind of can that has the little thing inside knocking around? :oops: Out of those listed, I've only tried Smithwicks and I liked it. But I see I have much to learn from your knowledge of tastings. ;)

    I shall keep my eyes open for it. Not sure if my Total Wine has it but I'll be checking as it's the store that has the best varieties around here.




    Tonight I did another round :D

    I actually talked to 2 friends earlier today about this brew. The one that recommends a lot of good stuff was surprised that I prefer the Fidy over KBS; he likes both but prefers the KBS. The other one hadn't tried KBS yet, but he texted us later saying he did try it and liked it, but preferred Fidy.



    @BumbleBee do you know of any other really stout (preferably similar to the 2 aforementioned) that may be able to be found at this time of year? Seems all the best ones are seasonal and are no longer available. :

    it might be available in a 4 pack :)

    http://www.totalwine.com/beer/ale/s...oak-aged-beer/p/106574817?s=1108&igrules=true

    I don't think barrel aged beers of any style are available year-round because the barrel aging process is so time consuming and expensive so the releases tend to be seasonal or one-offs. I can think of a couple more you probably haven't tried. Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break, Deschutes The Abyss, Great Divide Oak Aged YETI and Espresso Oak Aged YETI and Goose Island Bourbon County Stout. you might like this Youtube channel



    Chris is a great reviewer. he often plugs the websites https://www.qualityliquorstore.com and https://www.craftcity.com both websites have amazing craft beer selections :eek:

    this website might be helpful too

    oh and if anybody was paying attention and scratching their head wondering how Innis & Gunn Original is available year round if barrel aging beers is so time consuming and expensive??? they cheat and don't actually store the beer in barrels lol

    Couple of beers I tried on the weekend. The Killer Bee one is made with chocolate and coffee (Was gross!). The other one came from a PEI brewery. It was yummy!
