Rye River, The Herd, Bourbon Barrel Aged Quadrupel, 13%

This is the kind of beer best drunk with friends.

Coming in a 750ml bottle like a whiskey – but unlike whiskey in that when opened it has to be downed in one session!

I found a rich maltiness on the nose.

A lovely dark cherry fruitiness to the palate with a carbonation that doesn’t overpower.

Unlike a whiskey however – the finish is over all too quickly.

A heavy style of ale usually found for sale around the festive season.
