100/1918) Home:  Stork Derby Stout by Muddy York Brewing Co. of Ontario:  **;  5.5%, 40 ibu; roasty nose;  roasty with coffee and dry mocha flavours;

The story of the Stork Derby goes like this:  in 1926 the will of Charles Vance Millar bequeathed $500,000.00 to the Toronto mother who produced the most offspring in the next 10 years.  This was supposedly "controversial" but who objects to babies?  I am speaking in general here - I gather the topic of children in pubs is controversial in some circles.  You know who you are...

101/1919) Home:  Spiced Rum Aged Porter by Innis & Gunn of Scotland:  **;  7.4%;  matured 39 days over rum-infused oak;  brewed with wheat and barley malt and "aromatic spices";  spiced nose;  cola like flavours with licorice; herbal, spiced, almost medicinal finish;
