January 29th, 2020 – Puzzler was originally pieced together with our friends at Great Lakes Brewery back in 2013. We fell in love with the eclectic combination of dark roasted malts, Belgian yeast and American hops and are excited to have this beer back for a guest appearance. With the addition of freshly emptied bourbon barrels, Puzzler packs a whole lot of complexity into this 650mL bomber that’s over-the-top but surprisingly approachable. Get lost in this confounding brew.

Cocoa and roasty rich aromas are assertive on the nose, but what really jumps out on the palate is a blend of dark fruit, distinct booziness and a thick, luscious mouthfeel. Robust flavours of vanilla, espresso, whisky, chocolate and roasted grain are balanced by hints of clove, date and plum with just enough hoppy bitterness to round it all out. The hops provide a solid backbeat of moderate-to-high bitterness to the rich, bourbon-barrel flavours and roasty profile of this delicious brew, providing a uniquely dry and thirst-quenching finish that leaves you wanting more.
