COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hell Street is an 8.1% abv barrel-aged doppelbock with a name inspired by local boxing legend Tom McCluskey who grew up on Dorchester Street, nicknamed Hell Street at the time. Home to bootleggers, colorful characters, and tough times – Hell Street, the nickname given to lower Dorchester on the east end of Charlottetown, was a rough-and-tumble area in the 1940’s and 50’s. A place where bare-knuckle boxing was a common pastime. Like Hell Street and its residents, this barrel-aged doppelbock is colorful, complicated, and punches above its weight to keep you on your toes.

Bottle from a good friend. Pours a deep orange, decent off white almost light brown head, lace dots. Nose is very sweet vanilla a lot of fruit. Maybe apricot. Tastes vanilla caramel, burnt sugar, loads of barrel. Really tastey.

plaugher (491) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2016
750ml bottle. I really should have shared this. Didn’t realize it was going to be such a boozy warming sipper. Pours a clear garnet-amber, minimal head. Maple, caramel malt, vanilla, toasty oaken notes; syrupy sweetness, with dark fruits. Heavy and boozy; should have saved this until late-February blizzards (thankfully there’s more!). Quite the monster.

mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2016
[8166-20160429] 650mL bottle. Sweet maple-infused waffle cereal aroma. Slightly hazy, orange amber body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Sweet boozy wet grains flavour has a malty burlap boozy infusion. Medium-full body. Average. (7/3/6/3/13) 3.2

Overheard: "Back when I was in high school... and at least one other person here was alive back then..."

jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
2016-04-29. Hazy mahogany brown body, small beige head. 3+ Aroma of vanilla and barrel, very lightly tangy toasty. Flavour is similar, sweet vanilla over tangy toasty malt base. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Okay, too much barrel for my mood unfortunately. 7/3/6-7/3/13-14 Bottle via trade with BrewGoblin.

blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
[Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours amber-copper with an average size frothy tan head. Aroma is malty with some light barrel-ageing qualities. Flavour of caramel malt, brown sugar, dark fruit and toffee. Medium bodied. Just good, not great.

4.5
Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
This beer was incredible. A real surprise from PEI Brewing. Pours a dark ruby amber with medium off white head. Aroma was of raisin, toffee, toasty biscuit, and vanilla. Tastes of vanilla, coconut, raisin, caramel, and nuts. Had a heavy body with smooth warming nutty finish. Hefty price tag, but that didn’t stop me from multiple tastes.

3.8
Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
A reddish copper ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with dark fruits, banana esters, cloves, vinous character, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with candy sugar, dark fruits, plums, alcohol warmth, very nice and pleasant. Bottle at OttBottShare April 2016.

3.2
AgentAle (1812) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
Aroma is roasted malts, apple,caramel, toffee and tart. Taste is rich almost chewy malts with caramel and toffee hints.slight tartiness and earthiness on finish. Appearance is a clear dark amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

4.1
BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
PEIBC knocked this one out of the proverbial park. The Re-Animator reanimated is a fantastic glimpse at the wonders of barrel-aging. Unlike the crisp but malt-forward lager that is what before meeting bourbon and oak, Hell Street elicits bold and burly notes of toasted coconut, toffee, raisins, brown bread, milk chocolate, oak and a slight but welcome booziness. With the carbonation and alcohol both mellowing out, this is a fireside sipper that warms the hell into me. Good on ya PEIBC.
