Bellwoods - 2017 Skeleton Key (Barrel Aged Imperial Stout) / 500mL
Bellwoods (Toronto, ON)
1 year rum barrel aged Imperial Stout w/ raisins and vanilla. Spiced with a mélange of ginger, all spice, black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, star anise, nutmeg, juniper berries, vanilla, and caramelized raisins. The lively elements of spice are balanced by the richness of the roasted malts, creating a delicious balance. A very big, viscous, chewy dark beer. Aging has mellowed the sting of the rum barrel and allowed for a greater harmony of all adjuncts.
