15/663)  Home:  Altbier - Collaboration Ale, 25th Anniversary Limited Edition by Creemore Springs of Ontario:  *1/2;  a Düsseldrof style altbier ("old beer") brewed in partnership with Zum Schlüssel;  bready nose with a touch of central European  hops;  crisp tasting, would make for a refreshing summer beer;

16/664)  Home:  BNL Chocolate Imperial Stout by Flying Monkeys of Ontario:  **;  Treble Clef Series Beer 1;  a collaboration with the band Bare Naked Ladies;  brewed with Ecuadorian cocoa nibs; checks in at 10%;  very strong chocolate aroma - I could sense it with the glass sitting on the table in front of me;  very chocolaty but not overly sweet;  rich, thick mouthfeel;  it's a 750 ml bottle so this one is for sharing;

Would you believe I forgot to snap a photo of this one?  Shame that - the box was all sorts of fun so I will have to ask readers to do a Google search.
