BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bellwoods Brewery
Ontario, Canada | website

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This decadent imperial stout was transferred to cognac barrels after a long primary fermentation. Aged for just over a year in the barrel, this velvety brew is one serious piece of work. Upgraded by our brewers this year to have a slightly lighter body and more pronounced barrel and original contents character.

The first of two anniversary beers from Bellwoods. This is an imperial stout (not Hellwoods) aged for three months in Cognac barrels.

Beer is black with a small tan head. Decent retention, good lacing.

Nose strongly contains cognac, but also a rich bouquet of dark fruit (raisin, red grape). A rather vinous scent. Rich indeed. Quite nice.

Taste contains a strong cognac flavour, along with some oak. Roast malt, smoke and peat come through from the beer itself. Dark fruit (raisin) is there as well, but not as prominently as in he nose. Some chocolate. The cognac is strong but does not obliterate the base beer. Good mix.

Beer is full bodied, moderately carbonated. A bit boozy, to be sure.

Overall, very good. I prefer the Hellwoods to this, but this is very good.
