This post is a continuation of the 2015 New Beer Every Day Beer Diary Challenge, #ottbeerdiary. Over the course of 2015, I drank at least one new beer every day. Please read the background in the link above, and enjoy reading about the most recently tasted beers below. This year I may deviate from the diary format in some posts, hoping to concentrate more on the locations and the breweries I am enjoying. If you’d like to join the challenge as well, let me know in the comments below. You can catch up on all of our posts as part of the challenge under the tag ottbeerdiary.

Hellegijt Barrel Aged Ledaig by Brouwerij de Natte Gijt 🇳🇱. 12% ABV Russian Imperial Stout aged on Whisky barrel. This bottle I’ve held for a while. Still quite a peaty aroma. Dark and toasty. Flavor has a green, alcoholic edge. Lots of coffee. Daaaark coffee. Smooth! And gets tastier as it sits in the glass a little.
