What You Need to Know

The Demon Dweller is an oak barrel-aged variant of Green Man’s Dweller seasonal Imperial Stout and has been in production since 2013. So how was it? Let’s get to the review.

Appearance

The stout pours a jet black and is topped by an inch-thick cap of dense, tan-colored foam that shows good retention. The head’s reduction leaves behind a thin web of sticky residue on the sides.

Aroma

The aroma is strong and predominantly sweet with a scent of molasses; muddled with some dark chocolate, dark fruits, and earthy oak.

Flavor

The palate is led with a bitter start of earthy oak mixed with a mild dose of floral hops. Browned bread and sticky molasses wades through the middle and is greeted by earthy oak on the top end, sugary sweet notes of vanilla, and then bottoms outs with a boozy finish that lingers.

Mouthfeel

The feel is smooth and creamy and lightly coats the back of the mouth. The body is full body with less-than-moderate carbonation. Finishes dryly and somewhat astringent with its high alcohol content lending a moderate warmth.

Overall

The Demon Dweller presents well enough and its aroma is pleasant and strong enough to last the session. The feel is appropriate for the style and the palate is nicely complex and quite tasty. Overall, this a very well-made barrel-aged brew from Green Man.
