From Twin Sails Brewing in Port Moody in Collaboration with Boombox Brewing comes their “CANADIAN HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMP” a Maple Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. The beer pours a inky black colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of oak, vanilla, bourbon, maple syrup, sweetness, chocolate and toffee. The flavour is of oak, milk chocolate, maple syrup, vanilla, sweetness, toffee and a mild bite at the end that is more reminiscent of chilies that bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at a massive 13.8%. This stuff might be the best beer that Twin Sails has brewed up until this point.
Commercial Description: We took our OG Heavyweight Champ and transferred it into freshly dumped Canadian Maple Syrup Bourbon Barrels to age an additional 3 months. On the nose you get rich maple, dark chocolate and coffee notes, with a hint of bourbon. On the palate, you get a full on assault of maple followed by dark chocolate and bourbon, with notes of coffee, black liquorice and vanilla on the finish. This beer is pretty much the equivalent of getting slapped in the face by a beaver tail, O’Canada!
