Originally pieced together in the fall of 2012 as a collaboration with our friends at Great Lakes Brewing, this puzzle was too good to keep on the shelf. Midnight roasted malt, adventurous Belgian yeast, and American hops fit together as a rich, deep-bodied beer full of roasted and hoppy flavour. Then we barrel aged the brew, rounding out the roasted hoppy flavours with subtle sweetness. Though the flavour is wonderfully complex the last move is simple; remove cap to solve.
This beer is best enjoyed at cellar temperature (10C).
It’s our classic Puzzler recipe with an extra piece! Buckets of black malt, generous portions of hops and Belgian yeast are now aged in freshly-emptied bourbon barrels. Smooth velvet textures and subtle sweetness envelop the dark roasted malt body. The hop character is still evident, but has a more subtle presence than the classic-style.
This barrel-aged beauty is only available in the Snowcase pack!
