Stout – Green Leaf Brewing Co

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.

    I concur, this was a nice smooth and smokey stout. Wish I lived a little closer to the quay as this place would be a good go to for growlers.
