One of Canada’s most respected and prolific craft breweries to pop up in the last decade – Bellwoods continues to impress and amaze anyone who can get their hands on a bottle. It is next to impossible to buy bottles this side of Ontario, you’ll see some kegs at good beer bars from time to time but bottles are few and far between – luckily you’ve got Bishops Cellar!
SPICED IMPERIAL STOUT AGED IN RUM BARRELS
Released annually, Skeleton Key is their rum barrel aged imperial stout, spiced with a mélange of ginger, all spice, black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, star anise, nutmeg, juniper berries, and vanilla. Because they do their best to be multi-faceted (in life, and in brewing) they upped the ante with this 2018 version and pulled off enough beer on blending day to make 2 additional variants.
What it smells and tastes like: Rich notes of dark chocolate and caramelized malts are balanced by lively spices, subtle spirit barrel, and vanilla.
