Moose and Squirrel
I can't read those words without hearing them in the bad Russian accent of a certain Boris Badenov. Which means I also can't resist heading over to Laurelwood Brewing when I hear that they've released their Russian Imperial Stout called Moose and Squirrel.
A deeply rich, chocolately brew, this has plenty of hops to brighten the intense malts, and the flavor is so balanced you'd never guess it boasts an 8% alcohol level. But get in soon if you want some, since it's a very limited release. And while it's worth having it fresh on tap, they've also bottled it in 1-liter swing-top bottles, available (again, in limited quantities) for $12 each.
Details: Moose and Squirrel at Laurelwood Brewing, 5115 NE Sandy Blvd. Phone 503-282-0622.
