Granville Island Brewery's winter ale is as bold as the mighty lions that overlook the coast. With robust notes of cocoa, caramel and vanilla, it’s the ultimate winter warmer. A perfect complement to comfort foods and cozy fires. So get out of the cold and into the bold. Caramel malt aromas dominated by cocoa and vanilla. Complex layers of vanilla, bready malts, toffee, cocoa bean and a slight nuttiness. Moderate hop bitterness gives balance so that sweeter flavours do not overwhelm.
Pairs well with sweeter full-flavoured foods and cream based sauces. Tastes great with clam chowders and bacon.
