COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Say hello to Ghost Deer. A defiant and irreverent, devil may care, supersonic bitch of a beer. Ghost Deer is a 28% fermented beer, the strongest ever fermented beer which is only ever served from a single handcrafted and authentic deerís head.

The beer itself is a robust 28% blonde ale. After fermentation it is aged for 6 months in some amazing whisky, bourbon, rum and sherry barrels. There is only one Ghost Deer head and this beer will only ever be available on draft, served in a stemmed glass, direct from the mouth of the deer himself.

Crystal clear deep amber beer, no head whatsoever! Nose of fine spirits, cognac and a little whisky. Palate is smooth with zero carbonation. Somewhat drying from the alcohol. Rich flavours of woody spirits. Itís a very good blend of all the barrels - rum, sherry and whisky/bourbon all in good balance. Trace of toffee in there. Finishes dry with alcohol warmth and spice. Itís more spirit than beer in character but itís done very well.

Keg in Brewdog bar ... light hazy amber ... sweet spirit ... dates and figs nose ... big open spirit... its got lots of spirit tones ... a huge amount of spirit tone ... whisky with water ...that way a whisky open up with water ... big honey tones ... soft fruits ... tiny hint aniseed ... stella says she was getting sherry linger tones ... quite complex ... but reminds me too much of a whisky.
