New winter seasonal from Ottawa-based Kichesippi Beer Company. Sampled from a growler poured at the brewery about an hour ago in an American pint glass.
Pours an almost opaque, steely black with deep, cola-like ruby tinges around the edges of the glass. The tan coloured head is small, but has great retention as a film and collar and it leaves a minor amount of lacing.
Piny hops jump out from the aroma, along with smells of freshly cut grains, toasted malts, a mild red berry smell, a bit of farmyard funk and a sort of lake water tone. The aroma is quite appealing overall, though a slight trace of diacetyl can be noted as well.
The taste has a solid bitterness up front, with a toasted grain and mild chocolate backing. The toasted character becomes more prevalent on the tongue, the chocolate taste gets darker and then another wave of bitterness comes through in the finish.
The mouthfeel is surprisingly thin and the carbonation is rather low, but the long-lasting collar creates a nice creamy sensation on the tongue. The roasted and chocolate characteristics get joined by a bitter espresso-like flavour in the aftertaste.
This is a very solid effort from an up and coming Ontario brewery and it's nice to see a representation of the style brewed locally. I'll be sure to have my growler re-filled a few times while the beer is available and I'd like to see the brewery consider bottling it next year.
