Whiskey can come in a number of growing ‘finishies‘ these days.
So can beer.
This one is a first for me – cognac barrel finished stout.
Pours a bit lively – but settles down into a rich & sweet style.
Fairly light on the palate, hints of coffee, slight burnt notes & suggestions of sweet fruity cognac.
An entertaining brew!

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.
