A blend of Rasbiscus Mead with our Honey Ale and Stout aged for three months in a Brettanomyces-infused wine barrel. Mmm, that sounds good. I’ll have that.

On tap at the brewpub. An unclear amber to brown beer with a small creamy light beige head. Nice curtains. Light roasted aroma with caramel, some dried fruits and a distinct baked touch. There’s a faint bitterness in the flavor, with roasted notes and some oak and caramel. Full body, really smooth on the palate. Caramel and some oak in the finish. Unusual, but nice. Not much Brett impact. 130813
