    Congrats Ontarians, good luck
    Translated from Facebook:
    In very small amounts but soon much more heavily, La Buteuse goes to the largest purchaser of alcohol in the world: the LCBO. Toronto and Ottawa, the beer is in store.

    It was a '' long shot '' but was now the foot in the door.

    And Yes, Quebecers, we arrive home in mid-March with Sand d'ancre and MacTavish. Tracteur, Buteuse and Shawinigan Handshake will follow. Get ready!

    Microbrewery Le Trou du diable Buteuse Tripel Now Available At The LCBO! (Very Limited Release)

    LCBO Item # 320283-$4.45 / 500 mL Inventory: http://bit.ly/XymjJS

    That's crazy. I picked up a single bottle on my lunch hour today. There were about 12 on the shelf.

    I am sure this is a great beer (haven't had it before) but the way people are scooping this up doesn't make sense to me at all... It's like Westy all over again....

    Perhaps the future of things to come in Ontario when the word 'limited' comes attached to a beer? God I hope not.

    Pretty pumped to find this at my local LCBO, scooped up 4 bottles for the weekend. Had the Barrel Aged version when I lived out west, and remember really liking it. Looking forward to revisiting this one again!

    Another reason why Windsor sucks, and so does Toronto.
    We can't get any because Toronto gets it all. Then Toronto buys it all in 5 min.

    Settle down boys there will be lots soon! Le Trou du Diable just started brewing at their brand new production brewery last week.

    You aren't missing that much. It is a solid beer, but you can get much better stuff in Michigan. Typical Ontario over-reaction to finally having some quality beer available to us.

    Agree. It's a good Triple, but not great. The Barrel Aged version is sensational thought!

    remember: we don't have any other tripels on the shelf. and we definitely don't have any other Cnd tripels on the shelf. (and i don't include Peche as a tripel)

    I think it was an attempt at a joke?

    not sure where the joke is. some may consider Peche to be a Belgian strong ale. i wouldn't call it a stout or a porter. once you're in Belgian strong ale territory, you can call it a tripel or dubel based on the recipe.

    I have never heard of Péché being referred to as a BSA. Brewer themselves call this a stout and it bears no resemblance to anything Belgian. Not sure where "some" get that idea.

    Some who? I have never seen anyone refer to it as anything other than what it is: An Imperial Stout (with coffee).

    fine. we can play this game.
    tripels are ales that are typically dark (except for Westmalle) and high in alcohol

    Peche is 9.5% abv. brewers call it a stout w/coffee.

    this very website calls it a dubel. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1141/10325

    anything else you want to add?

    seriously, guys. find something else to gripe about.
    beer styles intertwine. if you cannot see how Peche is both a stout and a belgian strong ale, i don't know what to say.

    Yeah, that's double stout, not dubbel. By your rationale, this also would be a "dubbel": http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1199/11757

    I agree some beers blur the lines but Péché isn't one of them.

    EDIT: Re tripels, Fin du monde, Fringante and almost all i've had are golden color, not dark.

    We aren’t griping, we are confused as to why someone would say this. This is like someone telling me how their smart car is a monster truck.

    You mention that this website has it down as a dubbel; but it has it down as an "American Double / Imperial Stout"; if you click on American Double it says "Description: The American Double Stout gets some of it inspiration from the Russian Imperial Stout." Which is not the same as a Dubbel "Description:The Belgian Dubbel is a rich malty beer with some spicy / phenolic and mild alcoholic characteristics".

    Maybe this is where the confusion comes from? Or maybe the rest of us are just too pedestrian to understand this.

    Westy 12 is also the worst RIS I've ever had.

    :eek:
    Peche is a dubel?

    Per the listing you provided:

    Style | ABV
    American Double / Imperial Stout | 9.50% ABV

    American Double / Imperial Stout

    Description:
    The American Double Stout gets some of it inspiration from the Russian Imperial Stout. Many of these are barrel aged, mostly in bourbon / whiskey barrels, while some are infused with coffee or chocolate. Alcohol ranges vary, but tend to be quite big, and bigger than traditional Russian Imperial Stouts. Most tend to have cleaner alcohol flavors, higher hop levels, and more residual sweetness. Very full-bodied with rich roasted flavors far surpassing normal stouts.

    This is why Canadians shouldn't be allowed anything other than Canadian or Blue. SOCIALISM or death! o_O
