The brewing tradition of aging in barrels included adding fruit directly to the oak barrels. So, what would happen if we added a significant quantity of black cherries to a barrel of English Brown Ale?
Experiment completed. The result is a dark brown beer with ruby tints and strong aromas of black Bing cherries combined with roasted malted barley. In the mouth, a mild acidity readies the palate for the flavours of black cherries, roasted chestnuts and cassis. A delicious fruit-flavoured beer with a vanilla, woody and slightly bitter finish on the palate. Enough to revive old traditions!
