Imperial Stout GARNISHED WITH A S’MORES STICK
Imperial stouts are warming, complex ales that are made for fireside sipping on a cold winter’s night. Serve up Wellington Brewery’s Imperial Russian Stout (LCBO 296269, 473 mL, $3.65) with a S’mores-inspired garnish. Gently thread 2 toasted coconut marshmallows onto a chocolate-coated Pocky stick and rest it on top of a snifter glass. The flu y and sweet coconut marshmallows cut through the roasted edge of the beer, while the milk-chocolate biscuit harmonizes with the dense cocoa notes of the ale. Take the beer out of the fridge 20 minutes before serving to open up the intense flavours of the stout.
