Collaboration between brewmasters Sam Corbeil and Ryan Morrow of Nickel Brook.
Pours cloudy amber orange. Nose of tropical fruit and pine resin. Loads of hop of the palate encircled by orange citrus and palate scraping bitterness. The finishing is pleasantly long. Highly recommended.
Oily jet-black. An oaky creaminess on the nose is reminiscent of other barrel-aged brews but accompanied by a high octane background of alcohol. Bitter baker’s chocolate on the initial attack that smooths-out to a creamy chocolate truffle on the palate. Hardly any bitterness on the finish but I can’t find any hint of the cranberry fruit.
Dark amber-caramel colour. Cereal and biscuit on the nose. Faint hint of black liquorice on the initial attack. At first the hops dance around the edges of the palate—ceding the floor to the malt—until, the finish, when a pleasant bitterness sets-up camp around the molars.
Amber colour; lovely citrus notes on the nose; a hoppy attack and an almost unbearably bitter finish.
Fresh & yeasty on the nose & palate. The Belgian influence comes through loud & clear.
