Black Spruce

Alberta, Canada
5.8% ABV • IBU 40 • SRM 32

The Black Spruce Porter is a dark beer that stands apart. It displays robust flavours of fine roasted coffee, dark chocolate, molasses and cacao up front, showing intense maltiness that’s rounded out by sweeter hints of raisin and plum. The addition of earthy, herbal and floral hops acts as a counterbalance to the malt in terms of flavour and aroma. And brighter peach and dried fruit yeast flavours mix together to create a full-bodied, drinkable porter you could pair with grilled bison for dinner, and chocolate cheesecake for dessert.
