Brasseur De Montréal Ghosttown - Ghosttown Stout

6.6 % ABV

"Stout of absinthe, brewed with roots, herbs and deeply roasted malt. Complex mixture of over a dozen ingredients, continues its evolution in the mouth on coffee and chocolate flavors.

Its taste is a disconcerting intensity. Combining balance and complexity, it reminds us the drink that made the mad poets of the 19th century."

THE POUR

This stout pours a very deep brown almost black. It had a one finger brown head with coarse lacing.

THE AROMA

The aroma is quite malty with an herbal and coffee scent up front.

THE TASTE

The taste is quite different that your typical stout with malt, coffee, licorice and herbs, almost like Jagermeister. It has a medium body with a sharp aftertaste coming from the Absinthe.

OVERALL IMPRESSIONS

My overall impressions are good. This stout offers something different with its use of herbs. It has a decent stout profile but becomes a little medicinal after finishing just half a glass. Maybe a stout to split with friends. I would rate this stout 8 out of 10.
