Beer Advent Calendar 2013
From Canmore Alberta’s The Grizzly Paw Brewing Company comes their “Moose Knuckle Winter Stout”. The stout pours an opaque black colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of roasted malts, coffee, caramel and smoke. The flavour is of smoke up front with roasted coffee, roasted malts, caramel and some hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 6%. So far this is the most flavourful beer in the calendar. The overall roastieness is quite pleasing.
Commercial Description: Huge roast flavour and body. Created similarly to a traditional Irish Oatmeal Stout, this dark ale has heaps of character and will easily substitute for a full-blown meal. Received the Silver medal at Brewtopia ’98.
