If you're in Ohio and you see this fine beer sitting on the shelf:

1. Buy it. Drink it. Enjoy one of the best milk stouts I've ever known.

and/or

2. Tell me where you found it.

I have been tracking this beer since it went off the market in the US almost 4 years ago. I've been in contact with Carib Beer and been trying to track their release of the beer back into the US from Trinidad.

So far, I have sound a source, but it's in Newport, KY. The only other confirmed sighting was in Louisville, KY. 53 beer stores in Ohio, none of them have it, can get it, or have even heard of it. Even the incredible Jungle Jim's in Cincinnati, importer of everything from everywhere, hasn't been able to get it in.

I would love to find some in the state without having to cross the river.

Have you tried the Anderson's General Store? Oddly enough, they have one of the best beer and wine selections here in Columbus.

Would that Newport, KY supplier happen to be "The Party Source"? I'll be happy to give this a try since it is fairly close to me.

Odd that you mention that but, yes, it is the Party Source.

We call Mackeson the black blood of the earth. They don't get much darker and it has a great chocolate flavor while not being sweet. Malty, smooth, not bitter. For a dark beer lover like me, it's a rare treat.
