Hawkers Bourbon Barrel Aged Barley Wine (Canvent Day 24)
OH my. This beer spent two years sleeping away in a bourbon barrel, quietly waiting for the 24th of December. Brown sugar, crystalised honey, hints of coconut and, (dare we say) bourbon jump out, while a wonderfully rounded mouthfeel brings it home! Amazingly balanced, and the finish goes for days.
Pair with friends, pair with family, pair with whatever you are doing. Just be sure you deep fry something while you're at it.
Enjoy, and have the happiest of holidays!
