COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special - March 2012.
Heavenly Porter is a robust porter blended and aged with Heaven Hill old style bourbon. Distilled in the heart of bourbon country Kentucky since 1788, charcoal filtered to make a smooth and mellow whiskey. The beer is deep brown with a reddish tinge in colour thanks to the carefull blend of eight malts which give a slightly sweet aroma and a smooth initial taste and medium body. As the journey continues the slight warmth of the bourbon becomes evident and follows the beer down leaving you with a dryness in the mouth and warmness in your belly.

Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen. Reddish dark beer. Really quite sweet and fruity, sort of black forest gateau flavours. Wouldn’t have guessed the bourbon finish. Nice for a change.
