Folly - Metanoia (2yr. b.b.a Belgian Dark Strong Ale) / 500mL
Folly Brewing (Toronto, ON)
With just English Maris Otter malt and an extended boil with woody, resinous hops, this started life as a Barleywine fermented with Hornindal Kveik. Over two years in barrel, this took on a load of bourbon character as well as a delightful balsamic acidity. Big cherry, dates, vanilla, leather and quite a bit of sherry along with the rich molasses and brown sugar expected of the base. Lower carbonation. Recommend serving at 9° C, with the fruity side of this beer really opening up as it warms.
