One of the rotating offerings we spotted on our last trip to Canmore, and lunch at the Grizzly Paw. I was unable to get any more info about this beer, so I am unsure if this was a one-of, or if it will be a rotating regular.
Served in a small snifter, the color and body could have been a scotch. I got a few looks from other patrons when my beer arrived. Sweet grainy smell, with some warming alcohol vapors. The flavor was heavy, with an amazing mix of malt sweetness, slight hop bitterness, and just enough sour finish to keep it clean and tingly on the tongue. I have to admit, I wasn't expecting much, assumed it was have a puckering or even infected-tasting sourness - but I was totally wrong. I was very impressed, couldn't stop swirling my glass, sniffing and sipping. Thick, rich body and mouthfeel. A great experience. It they had it bottled, I would have snapped up an arm load on the spot!

Serving type: on-tap
