Another great Winter-only beer from Bellwoods is the Lost River Baltic Porter which also packs a punch at 7.7%. It’s creamy and chocolatey and delicious with roasted malts and a hint of dark fruits.
Not to be outdone, Amsterdam Brewery is unleashing its flavor monster Wee Heavy Scotch Ale for the festive season. It’s a blend of five different malts, boiled extra long, giving the beer full-body taste and a deep ruby-red colour.
Finally, their second seasonal offering is the Tempest Imperial Stout. This is a uniquely Ontario-ian beer, brewed with rye, wheat, oats, roasted barley, dark crystal, Maris Otter and chocolate malts. Then it’s cellared for three months before packaging, and shelved for about thirty seconds before drinking.
