Beer Advent Calendar 2014
From Central City Brewers & Distillers (Red Racer Brewing) in Surrey comes their “Thor’s Hammer Barley Wine Bourbon Barrel Aged (Vintage 2013)” a beer that was released in December 2014 and thus aged for a full year. The beer pours a very dark brown colour with a tan head. The aroma consists of vanilla, bourbon, dark fruits, roasted malts and a sweet finish. The flavour is of vanilla, bourbon, dark fruits, brown sugar, oak, roasted malts, orange, cherry, chocolate, sweetness, mild bitterness and an overall alcohol warmth. The alcohol content comes in at 11%. The Thor’s Hammer is one of my favourite if not favourite beer of all time. This years Thor’s Hammer 2014 Vintage was already amazing but with the Bourbon Barrel Aging this is even better! I can only imagine how good this will be in a year or two!
Commercial Description: Matured for almost one year, mahogany in colour, this award-winning barley wine is crafted from fine barley malt exuding deep, rich notes of dried fruit, plum and candy with a walnut ester.
