Garrison Brewing, Halifax, Nova Scotia

*Canadian Gold 2009 Brewing Awards

  • 9%ABV
  • Mahogany coloured beer with a thick, khaki coloured head.
  • Very dark black beer with only the slightest brown hues when held to the light.
  • Very malty aroma, with some chocolate and mint aromas coming through, rich molasses as well.
  • This beer is flavoured with dates, and they definitely come through on the taste.  This beer is very sweet, almost to a fault.  Very thick coating all of the mouths available real estate.
  • Flavours linger, especially the sweetness, a coffee like bitterness and a burnt sweetness similar to toffee.
  • Interesting beer, would make a nice after meal beer.
  • Co-op Liquor is a great place to check if you’re looking for this one, they have an extensive selection of east coast brews.
