Courtesy of Jami and Josh at Spinnaker’s James Bay here are few of the new, must buy craft brews that are hitting the market this week.

Hoyne GratitudeHoyne Gratitude ~ $11-12

Dark amber colour, spicy vanilla smell. Surprisingly smooth considering the high alcohol content. Smooth and warming rich flavour with a full malt body and spice. Perfect for sharing with someone next to the fireplace.

9.0% Alcohol – Very Limited Availability.

Swans Oatmeal StoutSwans Oatmeal Stout ~ $6-$7

Brewed with 7 varieties of malt and oats. Very dark, almost opaque. Mild coffee and roasted oats aroma. Has a medium body and creamy malt and bitter chocolate taste. Great balance. An every day kind of stout, I would try this in a 6-pack.

5.4% Alcohol – Seasonal Release

Blackstone PorterDriftwood Blackstone Porter ~  $6-$7

Opaque black with cherry brown head. Slightly smoky, roasted coffee smell and light hops aroma. A hearty medium body. Hint of sweetness, and roasty flavour, bittersweet and tart finish that comes from using a traditional sour mash recipe.

6.0% Alcohol – One Time Release

Persephone Barley WinePersephone Barley Wine ~ $12-$13

Very dark brown colour. Notes of caramel and fudge. This beer has a huge full body. Strong malt flavours with dark fruits, molasses, plums, caramel, and booze. Finishes with warming fruit taste. Not for the faint of heart, this beer packs a punch!

11.9% Alcohol – One Time Release

Thanks again to Jami & Josh at Spinnaker’s James Bay.
