February Special - Heavenly Porter Returns.


The ever popular Bourbon blended porter returns as our February special to warm you up through the last weeks of winter. This 5.4% porter has become an annual feature in the Tyne Bank roster, and rightly so. Brewed with 8 different malt varieties and blended with Kentucky Old Style Bourbon, Heavenly Porter is full of flavour.

The complex malt bill creates a robust and full bodied backbone to the beer. Deep brown in colour with a slight red hue, it's an intriguing sight in the glass. After fermentation, the beer is blended with Heaven Hill Bourbon. A classic Kentucky Bourbon with a smooth character and plenty of vanilla notes, having spent 4 years in oak casks. The bourbon smooths out the malt flavours, adds layers of complexity and a satisfying warmth to the beer. The flavours linger around, with roasted notes and a perfectly balanced whiskey character.

We will of course be maturing some of this year's batch in some Heaven Hill casks, which should be ready in time for Autumn, but you can get your hands on the original version in cask and keg now.
