A Belgian-style dubbel made in Edmundston, New Brunswick. Pouring a mahogany hue with reddish highlights, the ale has rich aromas of caramel, dark fruit, spicy cloves, brown sugar and pumpernickel bread. Medium body with touch of booze and sweetness on the finish. The spicy and fruity notes make this beer great to pair with festive desserts like gingerbread cookies or mincemeat pies.
A fresh bouquet of satsuma orange, ruby red grapefruit, and freshly picked berries on the nose of this IPA. With a medium body and a smooth but high bitterness, it’s really juicy on the palate with a touch of caramel malt. Serve it with aged Manchego — the gentle sweetness of the cheese complements the fruity notes in the ale.
This beer is made for dark, frosty weather. Clocking in at 9% ABV, this Russian Imperial Stout has rich, complex aromas of dark chocolate, vanilla, with a touch of molasses and umami-rich soy sauce on the nose. Pouring a deep, opaque black, on the sip there’s roasted coffee and semi-sweet chocolate with a building bitterness. Got fire? Try toasting some marshmallows and serving alongside, the gooey texture cuts through the ale’s full body, while burnt vanilla flavours complement the cocoa notes.
Made with Cascade, Columbus and Simcoe hops, this offering from one of Nova Scotia’s newest craft breweries shows light amber in the glass with a persistent creamy head. Subtle floral, malty and fresh hoppy aromas pave the way for smoothly rounded, lightly fruity malt flavours with a firm, nutty and bitter dryness on the finish.
This ruby red ale is deftly aged in oak with various wild yeasts and bacteria, and a ton of sour cherries. After 16 months in the barrels it boasts a luscious nose of fresh strawberries, black cherries, light baking spices and vanilla. The palate mixes those sweet red fruit notes with a lemony acidity and some wilder notes. Try this Gold Medal Winner of World’s Best Kriek at the 2015 World Beer Awards with a cheese plate and marvel at its versatility.
Brewed in the Munich Helles Lager style, this pale-coloured brew shows a soft creamy head with floral and nutty malt aromas. Lightly sweet citrusy flavours are delivered in a light-bodied package, finishing with a touch of nutty bitterness. Easy drinking.
