DEATH OR GLORY
Freeze Distilled Barrel Aged Belgian Golden Ale
At the beginning of 2011 we brewed a hopped up Belgian golden ale, and then freeze distilled it, amplifying and enlivening the flavors. Rather than stopping there, we then aged it on oak for over four years, sequestering it away in three different whisky casks (grain, Isle of Arran and bourbon from Kentucky). This is quite possibly the most exciting small-batch beer we have bottled to date. If intricately complex beers light your candle, then Death or Glory is going to set it off like a Catherine wheel.
A burnished coppery-bronze, it envelops with sweet, smoky and woodsy notes, rum and raisin, sherry, vanilla and maple syrup. At the same time, citrus and marmalade come to the fore, before concluding with an enormously warming finish.
Packaged in a wooden box. Glass is not included.
VERY RARE: Only a handful of bottles available.

Barrel Aged Ale
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
