Barrel aged beers have become increasingly popular in the craft beer fraternity and by beer aficionados the world over. Beer aged or served from wood is not a recent phenomenon by any means; beer was kept in wooden casks and vats until the advent of first aluminium and then stainless steel casks. The big difference between that and the barrel aging technique is the use of barrels from another drinks industry to add different character to a type of beer, sherry, bourbon, scotch, rum, wine and other barrels have all been used to great effect. Part of the art of barrel aging is creating beer that has both the character of the barrel and the character of the original beer. We’ve melded together the character of a strong American ale, heavily toasted oak barrel and Rum to create a triumphantly aromatic and complex beer that suits contemplative drinking studying the myriad of overlaid flavours and aromas. Our beer pours a deep ruby red with a lovely creamy fluffy head. Oak and deep toffee caramel dominate the aroma of this beer, there are hints of rum that promise further delights. On the palate this beer has a complex array of flavours, all at once it’s malty, has a strong vanilla and oak character and has a subtle sweet rum character that overarches the beer and holds it all together, delicious. See - Ruby Red with a lovely creamy fluffy head Aroma - Oak and toffee with hints of rum. Taste - Vanilla, oak and rum. Makes 40 pints of approx 6.5% beer. OAK CHIPS ARE ADDED AT START.

    Worth to try but won't repeat

    Dark red even brown would say , enough bitter , easy to make if follow the instruction but it is not my taste. The beer is not so bad, very drinkable but probably it needs a few weeks extra in a keg to achieve the full taste.

    Brewed this after getting this as an Xmas prezzie from the Mrs.
    Really impressed with the kit as all the sugar you need is supplied. Made as per instructions & it's came out lovely. Rum flavour not as full on as I expected so it doesn't overpower the Ale taste. Batch primed with the sugar supplied but will admit that the beer isn't as fizzy as I'd like it so might add a bit more sugar if I brew it again.
    Look forward to trying out some of the others in the range.
