From Winnipeg Manitoba’s half Pints Brewing Company comes their Fall/Winter seasonal “Noche De Los Alebrijes” a black lager brewed in the Oaxacan style. The beer pours a deep brown colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of roasted malts and caramel. The flavour was of roasted malts, caramel, coffee and some mild hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5.2% with an IBU of 32. I quite enjoyed this black lager as it was not one dimensional like average lagers are.
Commercial Description: A malty Oaxacan dark lager inspired by the carvings of the Oaxacan area of Mexico, this beer is a very drinkable dark lager with tons of Munich malt and a spicy zip of German Perle hops.
