Ontario Craft Beer, As Advertised – Beer 3

Ghosttown Stout

Ghosttown Stout from Les Brasseurs de Montreal (6.6%).

Okay so this is one of those ‘weird’ beers I just could not resist taking home. Stout with absinthe herbs and roots? Well I have to know how (if?) that comes together. And in keeping with the theme of these posts, as advertised, it came together exactly like you might expect.

Ghosttown pours deepest black with very minimal tan coloured head. HUGE liqourice and minty (herbally) nose that may or may not have some other notes in there but I wouldn’t stake my reputation on it. Tastes include roasted malt, chocolate, anise, coffee and fennel flavours as well as some sweetness. If you have had absinthe and you have had an imperial stout well you get the idea add a little from column A to a little of column B and mix. Ghosttown is full bodied and somewhat warming with roasted almost burnt malt flavour on the finish.

All in all, a bit of an oddball beer something I would only really want once and even then I am not sure I would have wanted the whole bottle to myself. That being said Ghosttown would make a great conversation piece at a beer tasting.
