newly arrived at legacy liquor store in vancouver:
Brasserie Le Trou Du Diable Le Sang D’Encre - $9.45
An epic label for an epic stout from Quebec, this particular brew is jet black in the glass with prominent roasted malt, anise and dried fruit on the nose. Coffee, chocolate and more dried fruits (raisins and dates specifically) accompanied by some slight herbal hop show up on the palate, making this medium-bodied, dry-finishing stout a real hit.

Nøgne Ø Tiger Tripel - $10.65
From the cold shores of Norway Nøgne Ø delivers a Tripel with a bit of Scottish inspiration. Golden brown in colour with rich ripe notes of stone fruit (peach and apricot) and a blend of spices such as nutmeg, pepper and anise on the nose. More stone fruit presents itself on the palate with even more spices like cinnamon, clove and a bit of paprika. Deceptively drinkable and just plain delicious, I say well played, Nøgne Ø.

The Bruery Oude Tart - $21.35
A world-class beer through and through, this California take on a Flanders red is a deep, dark brown in colour, like mahogany. Flemish funk owns the nose with hints of tart berry and leather, while the palate is tart and dry with plenty of cranberry and black currant. This brew will make you say “wow” with its complex aroma and palate. Simply fantastic.
