October 8, 2016

195/1780) Home:  One Ping Only by Beau's All Natural Brewing of Ontario:  **1/2;   8.5%, 34 ibu;  a Baltic Porter, Wild Oats Series No. 56;  brewed with rye malt and oats;  for a change it is not bourbon barrel aged and it does not suffer for this;  strong nose of alcohol, roasted malt, caramel, mild fruit;  bottled on Black Ribbon Day (August 23rd);  flavours of dark roasted malt and coffee;

Another one from the Beau's Oktoberfest four-pack.  I appreciated the reference to The Hunt For Red October.

196/1781) Home:  Tankenstein IPA by Mill Street Brewery of Ontario:  **;  7.0%, down from 7.5% last year, still 60 ibu and brewed with Nugget and Cascade hops;  somewhat re-tooled from last year - it's not quite the aggressive hop bomb I recall which is to say it stands out less but still it is pretty good;  earthy rooty nose and dry bitter earthy flavours;

From the Mill Street Harvest mixed pack:
