O Little Brown of Bethlehem

Welcome to the 21st of December aka the much anticipated end of the world so let’s throw open the door to our twenty-first (and potentially last) beer…

 

We have Maple Stout from Cannery Brewing, which is described as “stout, dark and handsome” …sounds a bit like an online dating profile.

Cannery Maple Stout

 

Maple Stout, as its very plain spoken name suggests, is a deep black brown beer with mocha coloured head and a very syrupy sweet nose. First sip, is cold coffee meets, well, maple syrup. Medium bodied but definitely on the lighter side of the stout family with lots of roasted malt and chocolate flavours and a subtly bittered finish. The cloying maple syrup eases off as you drink this one. If you like your stouts a little more sweet and a little less bitter this is the beer for you. Overall a very nice and accessible seasonal though I have to say maple syrup makes me think early spring and not Christmas but what the heck.

 

I am giving this one seven candy canes out of the possible ten.
