How do you make a champion beer better? Put it in a whisky barrel for 18 months. Complex, smooth & delicious.
The resulting beer is still one that’s heavy on the peaty, smoked elements but those are soon joined by a warm rush of raisin and cherry with further elements of dark chocolate, black forest cake and spice. Let it warm for a bit and you’ll find more sweet signs of vanilla, caramel and chocolate fudge, with all those elements adding together to make a complex but still balanced 12 percent beer. -Will Ziebell, The Crafty Pint.
