Beer Description

The base beer is Divine Reserve No. 4, brewer Vince Mandeville’s Wee Heavy recipe that won the gold medal at the 2008 World Beer Cup in Strong Scotch Ale category. Here are his tasting notes:

The flavors and aromas of the base beer are true to the Divine Reserve No. 4. It is filled with caramel, toffee, dried figs, cocoa and a slight peatiness. Where it deviates is with the roundness of flavors the bourbon barrel contributes. Vanilla, cinnamon and touch of rich earthy pipe tobacco mix with an alcohol warmth that adds to the rich creaminess. The great thing about this beer is that the barrel aging adds to the whole without taking away the character of the original.

The warmer this beer gets the better it tastes. We recommend enjoying between 55°F and 60°F.
