The latest house brew for the Pourhouse Bier Bistro - Amber's Kenmount stout, aged in unspecified whisk(e)y casks. A 16oz pint in a cough, Sleeman's glass.

This beer appears a very dark, well, black, with very slight cola basal highlights, and one finger of thinly creamy mocha head, which leaves very little in the way of lace around the glass as it quickly evaporates.

It smells of roasted, sweet caramel malt, real vanilla, milk chocolate, a bit of boozy oak woodiness (sans the heat), and mild earthy, softly leafy hops. The taste is lightly toasted and pastry-like doughy malt, a tame sourness that seems rooted in both milk and grain alike, a nice vanilla cookie character, and some restrained woody earthiness, barrel and hop all in harmony.

The bubbles are very much on the low side via their wan frothiness, 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 down Whyte Ave on my now free afternoons!
