legacy liquor store

more lovely beers at legacy liquor store in vancouver:

Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel Aphrodisiaque (Four-Pack) - $18.75

This Quebecois brewery has been brewing gems since the day they opened on Laurier Avenue, and Aphrodisiaque is just one example of their stunning lineup. A nearly pitch black brew with a powerful nose of vanilla, dark chocolate and coffee that leaps from the glass. On the palate chocolate takes the front seat with vanilla and a touch of coffee pulling up the rear. A full, robust brew that will please any stout lover.

Cannery Brewing Co. Baltic Porter - $8.15

A little BC beer will always please the palate, and this Baltic Porter is perfect for this chilly weather. Bronze in colour with brown highlights and all sorts of biscuit, caramel, a little black licorice and toast on the nose. More biscuit, sticky toffee and dark fruit (plum, prune and blackberry) pop up on the palate that wraps a big body with a dry finish. Easy drinking and just plain delectable, this beer is a gem right out of the Okanagan Valley.

Parallel 49 Brewing Co. Vow of Silence - $8.15

A bit Belgium straight out of Vancouver thanks to the folks at Parallel 49 Brewing, this hazy ruby red Belgian strong ale is full of ripe pear, cloves, caramel and Belgian yeast in its aroma. Meanwhile fruitcake, nuts, spice, more Belgian yeast and dark fruits play on the palate. Medium bodied, with warming alcohol to balance it all out, makes this brew an excellent alternative to buying a flight to Belgium.

Maui Brewing Co. Aloha B’ak’tun (Six-Pack) - $19.45

A brew from a true tropical paradise, this Hawaiian treasure is rich, dark and topped with cocoa-coloured foam. A nose of sweetened coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malts strikes first, while chocolate, cinnamon and molasses cookies make themselves known on the palate. This stout is a real mouth pleasure with a dry finish that leaves you wanting more.

Phillips Brewing Co. Twisted Oak Stillage Barrel-Aged Rauch - $7.05

Another gem from the Phillips Twisted Oak Stillage series, utilizing cherrywood and applewood smoked malt. A clear red brick hue with plenty of campfire ember, tanned leather and caramel malt show up on the nose, while on the palate peat (albeit more vegetal) comes through in addition to crackery malts and of course smoke courtesy of the aforementioned malts. This unique brew is definitely worth a taste.

FiftyFifty Brewing Co. Elijah Craig 12yr Scotch Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout - $43.85

What do you do with phenomenal Imperial Stout besides drink it? Barrel age it of course! And that’s exactly what FiftyFifty Brewing did down in Truckee, California. Aged in Elijah Craig 12yr barrels for 200 days, this beer is as black as the night with a big nose of bourbon, chocolate, cocoa, vanilla and so much more. On the palate big bourbon notes come into play, with piles of chocolate, cocoa and smoke from the barrel. Whether you drink this beer now or sometime down the road, either way it’s worth the somewhat hefty price tag.
