BURNABY, BC – Dageraad Brewing has announced the release of a pair of dark-hued brews.
Tanuki Dry Black Lager (4.3% abv):
Perhaps in response to the 12% and 13% beers we bestowed upon you in December, our first release of 2023 is a dark and exceptionally dry black lager named Tanuki. Wild rice bestows Tanuki with a beautifully light floral counterpoint to the dark and toasty malts and a just-perceptible boost its overall texture. On the palate, Tanuki offers cacao and licorice notes with a clean, dry finish.
Sterke Soelaas Strong Dark Ale (9.5% abv):
Aptly named, Sterke Soelass (Strong Solace, from the Dutch), is a strong dark ale brewed with the familiar warm spices of freshly-baked cookies. The rich coffee and chocolate sweetness of the malt blends beautifully with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and raisins. Imagine the platonic ideal of your gran’s best oatmeal cookies distilled and packaged into 650 mL bottles. It’s a mid-winter delight, no oven mitts necessary.
Tanuki and Sterke Soelaas are available now at the Dageraad tasting room and online shop.
