The latest house brew for the Pourhouse Bier Bistro, the Kenmount stout, aged in unspecified whisk(e)y casks. A pint in a cough, Sleeman's glass.
This beer appears a ver dark, well, black, with very slight cola basal highlights, and one finger of thin creamy mocha head, which leaves
It smells of roasted sweet caramel malt, real vanilla, milk chocolate, a bit of boozy oak woodiness, sans the heat, and mild earthy, soft leafy hops. The taste is lightly toasted pastry-like, doughy malt, a tame sourness that seems rooted in both milk and grain alike, a nice vanilla cookie character, and a nice, restrained woody earthiness, barrel and hop in harmony.
The bubbles are very much on the low side, the body a hefty medium weight, and simply straight-ahead smooth. It finishes sweet, for sure, but in a subtly tempered manner - the myriad drying notes seeing to that.
A nice shift beyond the already sturdy underlying stout - the barrel confers an enjoyably balanced array of complementary flavours. Glad to have such an option when beer-strolling Whyte Ave.
