From the brand new brewery in the City of North Vancouver’s Lonsdale Quay Green Leaf Brewing Co comes their “Stout”. The stout pours an opaque black colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. The flavour is of burnt coffee, chocolate, roasted malts finishing off with a mixture of sweetness and bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5.5% with an IBU of 35. Like their Pale Ale this is a very well crafted ale and I will be consuming more over the holidays if I have my way.
Commercial Description: Have you ever wanted to drink a chocolate cookie? We did, so we came up with our stout. We filled it with oats and Crystal and Chocolate malts to make it a dark beer with a pleasing sweetness and subtle roasted finish. We balanced our specialty grains with premium Pale malt and a meticulously monitored fermentation, leaving our stout so full-bodied it’s a beer you can practically chew!
Food pairing as per brewery: Roasted smoked or grilled meats, salty foods like ham, pretzels or cheeses, chocolate desserts and cheesecakes.
