April sees the return of our popular bourbon blended ale, Heavenly Porter as this month's special.
The beer is deep brown with a reddish tinge in colour thanks to the careful blend of eight malts, giving a slightly sweet aroma, a smooth initial taste and medium body. After fermentation we blend the porter with Heaven Hill bourbon. Distilled in Kentucky, the heart of bourbon country, since 1788 Heaven Hill is charcoal filtered to make a smooth and mellow whiskey. As you drink the beer the slight warmth of the bourbon becomes evident, and adds an extra dimension with hints of vanilla and a real depth.
Heavenly Porter will be available this month and will be featuring at CAMRA's 38th Newcastle Beer and Cider Festival, so make sure you pop along and give it a try.
