You may think you are having a beer, but Tuatara XI technically a licorice black Belgian barley wine. That adds up to a complex stew of flavours and aromas from Belgian yeast, roast malt and actual licorice from RJs in Levin, all balanced nicely with New Zealand hops. It also adds to a alcohol content in double figures, so take it easy with the heavy machinery. Perfect with a chocolate dessert or an enterprising cheese board.
