136/1954) Home:  Vorago Baltic Porter by Amsterdam Brewery of Ontario:  **1/2;  8.2%, 23 ibu;  an Adventure Brew;  brewed with rye;  oaky nose with mocha notes;  sweet mocha with a hint of fruit; a bit sweeter than many Baltic Porters;  the alcohol is very well hidden;

137/1955) Home:  Nautilus Foreign Extra Stout a collaboration between Amsterdam Brewery and Bar Hop of Ontario:  **1/2;  6.5%, 33 ibu;  an Adventure Brew; foreign extra stouts were traditionally brewed with extra hops to help preserve the beer as it was being exported;  very roasty nose with just a hint alcohol;  very roasty flavours with a touch of dark coffee;  the hops are scarcely noticeable against this backdrop of such strong flavours;
