COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lovibonds Dark Reserve No.3 started out as a rich and luscious porter, crafted with a blend of seven malted barleys. Every year this brew takes our brewer and brewery to breaking point. After extended conditioning in the brewery we patiently aged this beer in wooden barrels that first contained that world famous Tennessee Whiskey, then our Dark Reserve No.2 The result is a stunning marriage of two crafts. Limited to 500 bottles
