Opaque black beer, little dark tan head. Woody malt nose. Palate is smooth and dense. Low carbonation. Rich dark malt with a good dose of coffee. Wet wood - mild. Mild minerals. Subtle dark chocolate and red berry fruits. Good stuff but I didn’t think this was up to Menno’s usual super high standard.

Black color. Mild but very nice aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, peat; iodine. Good body strength; good roasted malt flavor, cut by a slight sourness; the booziness from the barrel here is a bit more evident.
Good.
