TORONTO, ON – Bellwoods Brewery has announced the release of a pair of limited edition Imperial Stouts that have spent time in two barrels each.

Double Barrel Bring Out Your Dead (13.5% abv):

BOYD is an Imperial Stout aged in cognac barrels for 16 months. Rich and velvety, it’s the perfect culmination of roasted malts, oak aging, and subtle spirit uptake. This special limited edition was aged for an additional 9 months in bourbon barrels.

Double Barrel Skeleton Key (14.1% abv):

Skeleton Key is an imperial stout aged for just a year in rum barrels, with cinnamon, ginger, mace, black pepper, cardamom, nutmeg, allspice, star anise, and vanilla. The result is an intense showcase of dark chocolate, caramelized malts, spirit barrel, and lively spices. This special limited edition was aged for an additional 14 months in Woodford Reserve chocolate malted rye bourbon barrels.

Both beers are available now at both Bellwoods retail stores and the brewery’s online shop while supplies last.
