North's SDB aged in Glenora barrels for 4 months. Poured from a Bridge 750 into a Bernardus goblet.

A - Some robust carbonation for an oak-aged beer. Fat bubbles cling the bottom of the glass while a rich, creamy amber head sticks around atop for quite a while, leaving a good residual head and some light lacing down the side of the glass. Cloudy and dark with amber hues as light shines through.

S - The real test of an oaker, and doesn't disappoint. Cherry, currant, plum, vanilla, bourbon, brandied cherry, dates, figs, stewed apples, belgo yeast funk, raisins, an almost oily, resinous estery backbone.

T - A wonderfully complex brew. Strong whiskied front with malty notes and a pronounced alcohol and bitterness that reveals itself quickly. Almost more akin in character to strongly hopped barleywine than a Belgian strong dark. Vanilla, toffee, cherry, sour apple, red wine, mineral, stewed corn, and molasses. Banana and spice reveal themselves in the finish along with some sweet vanilla tones and a lingering but not unpleasant bitter as well as an alcohol reminder that you are drinking a STRONG beer.

M - Rich, bitter, well-carbonated for an oak-aged, and really lingers on the palate.

O - A great brew, the most unique beer I've had in Halifax, even compared to North's other offerings. Get it while you can! They have a limited supply. Chances are if you're reading this they've already sold out, but keep your eyes on the brewery's facebook page for future outings of this wonderful brew.
