#1714 Granite Chocolate Chili Stout from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

16oz draught

Granite Brewery and Tied House (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

The beer poured a solid black colour with a light tan coloured creamy head which laced extremely well down the glass. The aroma was milk chocolate, chili peppers, roasted malt, and coffee. The mouthfeel was full bodied, creamy, and with average carbonation. The flavour was roasted malt and chocolate up front, with the chilis creeping up and catching the back of the tongue. The finish was decently bitter.

The beer poured a solid black colour with a creamy tan coloured head that clung to the side. The aroma was roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, and hints of vanilla. The mouthfeel was full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and notes of soy sauce in the finish.

The beer poured a solid black body with a thin off-white creamy head. The aroma was roasted malt, milk chocolate, light coffee, and vanilla. The mouthfeel was medium to full bodied, slightly creamy, with average carbonation. The flavour is a nice balance between the sweet milk chocolate notes and the bitter roasted malt with a mildly bitter hop finish to boot. Very good beer.

The beer poured a translucent dark copper colour with a thin white ring for a head, which was short lived. The aroma was caramel, bread, yeast, and light citrus. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was roasted malt, weak caramel notes, cereal malt, and light citrusy hop notes. The beer was decent, but the flavour was weaker than the aroma would have indicated.

The beer poured a clear medium gold with a thin white ring for a head. The aroma was yeast, biscuit grains, and light citrusy hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was very similar to the aroma with a nice malty backbone complemented by some light citrus and earthy hops, and a mellow finish.

The beer pours a hazed golden orange colpour with a thin lace covering for a head. The aroma is orange, mango, and grass. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is similar to the aroma with a piney, bitter aftertaste. It’s a nice IPA, not as tropical as the trend has been, but not as citrusy as the 2000s decade.

A blend of American and Belgian brewing styles for this year’s Saint Me day beer. It pours a hazed medium gold colour with a generous foamy off-white head which lasts throughout. The aroma is very yeasty, definitely a Belgian influence here, followed by notes of tropical citrus juices, and a hint of biscuit malts. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. First thing I taste is pine resing, which gives way to some grain notes, followed by some tropical fruit juice flavours, almost similar to ‘Five Alive’. Still not a fan of these juice bombs…..I want beer, not breakfast juice!

The beer pours a solid coca-cola colour with a half inch creamy tan coloured head which sadly, did not last more than a few seconds. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, and notes of vanilla. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is roasted malt, coffee, and not much else. Quite one dimensional for a stout, and weak tasting.

The beer pours a medium gold colour with very little head, and what head there is, lasts less than a couple of minutes. Lots of effervescence. The aroma is grainy malt, weak herbal hops, and weak peppery note. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is weak grains, some light hops, and grass. It tastes better than a lot of 4.2% pale lagers, that is for sure. But still....568ml is too much!

The beer pours a translucent pale straw colour with a generous white head which sticks around a couple of minutes. The aroma is cereal grains, weak herbal hops, and some spicy notes. The mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is weak grainy malt with a bitter hop finish. Not a lot going for this one. Very bland.
