This wife grabbed this the last time she was at the LCBO because she has come to learn that, much like with Great Lakes, Black Creek has yet to fail me. So if she sees something new from them, she gets it.
This particular night was rough for me. On Wednesdays, the wife works out and I spin right after, so we have to do a child exchange at the gym. Most nights, everything is fine. This night, however, things were NOT fine. Christopher yakked all over the van on the way home, so guess what I had to do when I got home?
After those fun times, I wanted a beer, for obvious reasons, but I only wanted one. I looked in the fridge and figured a stout would fit both those criteria. It poured out stout black and had a little head on it (no stouting this time). It smelled of coffee and chocolate. I was expecting an earthy, potatoy smell….being made with potatoes and such.
It tasted very smooth, a touch bitter in the mouth and not heavy at all. I enjoyed every single drop of that stout. One of the best new stouts that I’ve had in a long time. It was so good, that I recommended to Mark and Craig to go get some. Craig did and drank 6 of them in one week. I think he liked them too.
Oh, and that last criteria of it lasting a long time… didn’t happen.
