Snapping Turtle Stout
From "The Gornish" (Rusagonis, New Brunswick), Snapping Turtle Stout is brewed by the Bogtrotter Craft Brewery. It's a low-alcohol stout (4.8%), but one with a good quantity of bitterness at 50 IBUs.
Snapping Turtle is a deep brown ale with caramel highlights. It's got a powerful molasses aroma, with a bit of espresso thrown in. The flavour was big, especially for a low-test stout. Lots of coffee and roasted malts, with a bit of molasses to add sweetness.
Really, quite a nice little stout. Snapping Turtle was a good winter ale that left me very pleased.
Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
