COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deliciously dark beer conditioned in American oak pinot noir barrels. Meticulously monitored to achieve optimum balance of oak and pinot, overlaid with the rich, malty dark flavours of the porter. Racked off and filtered with a final flourish of dry hops to add a slight edge. Perfect for that moment when you sit down to a Sunday roast.
