crossovert (11015) - Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2016
500ml bottle. 2015 13%. Pours a decne black, light tan head. Aroma is cognac, cocoa, sweet malt. This is not hugely boozy one of the better barrel aged beers ive come across in a while. This put me on my ass though at 13% for a 500ml. Wish it wouldn’t have but oh well.

brokensail (15638) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 6, 2016
On tap @ RateBeer Best 2016. Black in color with some tan foam. Really strong roast, black licorice, and ash on the nose. I get a lot of brandy, too. Some sweetness of vanilla, chocolate, and molasses on the flavor, at least. Still a lot of roasted malt and coffee notes. Some barrel, chocolate syrup, and burnt sugar. It’s not bad. Not my favorite of the day.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
500ml bottle. 2013 release. Pitch black in colour with a thin but lasting tan coloured head, light lacing. The aroma is very roasty, lots of dark chocolate, coffee, some smoke, wood, light alcohol. The flavour is lightly sweet, lots of wood, moderate alcohol, dark chocolate and huge roast, some dark fruits. Warming mouthfeel, medium/large body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, warming, rich. Really nice stuff. Not many beers transfer well from the barrel for me but this is really nice. As a great richness to the Hellwoods.
