BARRIE, ON – Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery is preparing to follow up the BNL Imperial Chocolate Stout released via the LCBO late last year with another limited edition beer that will be available at the Ontario liquor store chain.
The Matador Imperial IPA, a 10% abv & 88 IBU cedar-aged ale created for the 8th anniversary of Flying Monkeys, is described as follows:
As an Imperial IPA, The Matador is full of drama and colour playing to the expectant passions of true beer aficionados. Fresh aromas of sweet cedar wood smolder in the warmth of this beer’s 10% ABV while Amarillo hops give this Imperial IPA astounding citrus flavours pushing its bittering to a solid 88 IBUs. The Matador is an artisanal beer truly worthy of Imperial status. Olé!
The Matador will be available soon at select LCBO outlets in boxed 750 ml bottles. The size of the edition and price point are still to be confirmed.
- Greg C. is drinking a Galactic Pale Ale by Granite Brewery at King & DufferinNice elements here - clear & bright body, pine & tropical fruit notes, clean on the palate - but feels a bit reined in, lacks a spark.
- Greg C. is drinking a Green Monster by Rainhard Brewing at King & DufferinHops are big enough that they mostly take the sweet edge off the lactose, at least until it starts to warm up. Nice mouthfeel though.
- Greg C. is drinking a Twenty Mile Farmhouse Ale by Bench Brewing Company at King & DufferinHas less prickliness than I recall, but still has a bit of an edge, with notes of lemon and pepper & an underlying dusty dryness.
- Greg C. is drinking a Stone Xocoveza by Stone Brewing at King & DufferinNot usually keen on beers brewed with peppers, but in this case, it’s well integrated with the other spices. Helps that base beer is great.
- Greg C. is drinking a Breakfast Stout by Founders Brewing Co. at King & DufferinStill a goddamn classic. Respect.
