    From the overly pedantic dept.

    The narwhal is barrel aged.
    The Belgian dark strong is homebrew in an old Stillwell bottle, not a Stillwell beer.

    Great box!

    Cool! The homebrew is an exciting touch! The Narwhal is already in the fridge, can't wait to try some of these!

    You beat me to it-- yeah the home brew is a Belgian Dark Strong, bottled in February. ABV is 9.1%! Enjoy!

    Thanks to my sender, as I'm not sure who they are on here, other than a purveyor of fine pickles? :grin: Really looking forward to trying all of them, as I've never had any of them before. Special extra thanks for the De Cam as well, I plan on possibly including that in my birthday line-up this month.

    According to the good folks at Purolator, a box of collectable glassware was delivered into the arms of a resident of La Belle Province earlier today.

    Cheers.

    Glad you like it, I had a last minute trip to Texas and packed in a rush. Most of my cellar is sours/lambic, so thus the mead and ice cider as I know they are not your preferred style. They are both favorites of mine and great examples of quality. The swag was from my days as a beer buyer. Hope you enjoy.

    Salut

    I think I'm your target. When I've opened the box, I've been impressed by the first bottle and one after another. Some are new vintage I didn't have the chance to try.. I'm very excited by your selection. Plank road is already gone and interesting. Tonight I will crack the Firestone one.

    Merci beaucoup!

    Cheers. Sorry they were late getting to you.

    My friend had that Marzipandimonium recently and said the almond was a little more mild, but the barrel was fantastic.

    Here you go! Thanks to my sender, I know there was some difficulty getting this box to me, no thanks to UPS. Looking forward to cracking these open once the weather starts getting chilly. :sunglasses: Particularly looking forward to the Sixth- I've had my eyes on the look-out for that one for a while.

    Last but not least. Sadly my 1st box that went out is likely in the hands of a crooked Bastard UPS driver in Winnipeg. But all is well. Apologies to The amazing Charles Ferland for the delay in posting his generosity. Looking so forward to these.
