Drink: Waterloo Dark
Source: Waterloo Brewing, Waterloo, Ontario
Size: 473 mL tallboy
From Ontario’s first craft brewery, the Waterloo Dark is a seriously dark lager—think cola—with ample, frothy head.
The sassiness of black molasses hits your nose first, with a hint of bitter cocoa powder and burnt toast.
Bitter black coffee bite on the palate, with low citrus tang underneath.
A gentle finish with lingering molasses-malt.
Pair with barbecue or other sweet and savoury items, or bust out when Guinness is getting boring—or you want a step up from the PC Black Lager. But not too classy—just malty.
Hoochsavvy Grade: B+
