Every good beer and whisky tells a story, one that begins with malt and water. That's where the similarities end and the stories head in different directions.
Where beer enjoys a cool, calm and short-lived journey, whisky's path is one of patience and measure with the barrels aged for years at a time. Within this beer these two tales weave themselves back together.
Pour it with relish, and be greeted by the sublime, silky oak barrel scent of fine malt whisky, vanilla, peat smoke, pine needles and chocolate coated honeycomb.
Take a sip and the palate reveals the rich, decadent stout you'd expect, but with a surprising umami quality, sweet spice and gentle acidity.
Like a great whisky, this beer transforms as it slowly warms in your glass. Those with patience will discover that much like ageing whisky in a barrel, if kept in a cool, dark place this Stout will continue to evolve and surprise.
