    Mm. $60 for a 12 pack of 510mL Pliny's. Bottled a month ago. The blind pig was bottled four days ago, on the 14th.

    Picked up these from a bottle shop in the Adelaide Hills:

    Haven't had a chance to try them yet but I see Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. features quite a bit in this thread and it's the first time I've come across it here so naturally I had to buy it. Really looking forward to the Cherry Choc one.

    The Fuller's is a bit of an interesting one and I'm taking the chance on something completely different. My expectations aren't that high, being a British beer, but we'll see.

    I was back in Canada for month earlier in the year so took the chance to try some different beers. So many craft breweries have opened in Vancouver now!

    Here are a few I tried...

    Beau's All Natural Brewing Company - The Tom Green Beer
    [​IMG]

    Hearthstone Brewery - Graham Cracker Ale
    [​IMG]

    Russell Brewing Company - Root Beer Milk Stout
    [​IMG]

    The next two were my favourites. The pub we kept going to suggested going a half half mix as well which was pretty damned nice.

    Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers - Luminescent Chocolate Coconut Porter
    [​IMG]

    Mill Street Brewery - Vanilla Porter Draught

    Discovered https://www.mocu.com.au/ the other day, ordered the Hardtail Henry Oaked stout which was awesome, along with the Emersons Red IPA, which was also great, a real burnt toffee at the end of it.

    Thinking of grabbing the Japanese pack next!!

    That Choc Oatmeal Stout is an absolute corker - one of my favourites.

    Want to enjoy a bevvy with Bob? Well, as of this week you'll be able to – at least, with a beer bearing Hawkie's likeness, that is.

    The former prime minister, who once famously broke the world beer-skoling record in his student days at Oxford, poured the first Hawke's lager today at The Clock Hotel in Surry Hills.

    The brew is the first from Hawke's Brewing Co, and will initially be offered on tap across 11 pubs in Sydney and Newcastle.

    Great beer, but lots of on par out there. The Hawkers IIPA is a cracker, try it!

    Love the creaminess of a milk stout and the added bonus of coffee as well

    Shame the place we are staying at only has tumblers.

    I've had it, and also the saint bernardus abt 12 which has, shall we say, a very close relation :p. Both absolutely fabulous

    I've had the ABT12, and it was an experience. Took a sip and went "meh", then 3 seconds later my mouth was overwhelmed with caramel and toffee.

    Chimay Blue is still my favourite, however!

    I saw a few bottles of that in a bottle shop in north sydney.
    Was considering it, but holy shit is it expensive.

    Besides, the St Bernardus abt 12 is the same recipe but made by another Trappist brewery.

    Im currently enjoying some Founders KBS, Backwoods Bastard and Breakfast Stout.

    Love me some heavy stouts now a days.

    It's arrived. Hard to see but the best before stamp isn't till Feb 2020, which means I might have to cellar it for a year or so before drinking
