Renowned for his lightning reflexes and post-season prowess with St. Louis, Edmonton and Toronto, the man in the rabid dog mask notched 448 wins during his 21-year pro career (1989-2010). An exemplary leader and fearsome opponent, Cujo went to the World Championships and World Cup in 1996, and in Salt Lake City in 2002 helped bring home the gold.
This full bodied ale pours with an old gold, copper, burnt orange hue topped off with dense ivory coloured foam. The aromas start with caramel and butterscotch with a wisp of toasted whole grain bread and honey. Shortly after, fruity notes appear, led by apricot and sultana raisins, capped off with a slight aroma of toasted nuts. The body begins with a slightly sweet flavour that drifts into apricot and orange marmalade. There’s also some nice bready characteristics accented by a touch of nut. Starting with a sparkling, champagne-like feeling, the dry finish is full, lingering and warming. 8% alc./vol. | IBUs 34.
