"This is only available in selected Indie retailers and we're super chuffed to be the only place in Sussex to have this beer in stock and can';t wait to try it ourselves. It's been a long time coming."
Gipsy Hill Brewing Co. say...
"All the way back in July 2018, when the world seemed a lot simpler, we brewed a heavy imperial stout. Once brewed, this was fermented in steel before being conditioned and then transferred to a selection of amazing Scottish Whiskey barrels. The beer was then aged for 20 Months before being blended and packed in March 2021. 3 of the best barrels were selected for their contrasting and complementary characteristics, it was then bottle conditioned for 8 months.
The resulting beer has a ABV of 9.5%, has a moderate carbonation, with a dark lasting head. It has intense aromas of Liquorice, blackberries and blackcurrant, Chocolate and peated whiskey. The body is full without being sickly sweet. As it warms the chocolate and whiskey aromas intensify and it also shows coconut. A perfectwinter beer!"
