Dubbel - 14 Month Rioja Barrel-Aged
Collaboration with Cassels Brewing Co.
I saved a bottle for my birthday, and I was not disappointed. SMOOTH - to my surprise it's gotten so much smoother. Pure bliss to sip slowly. (Reminder to self , I must buy more for next birthday)

From New Zealand, where Kiwis, manuka honey and Lord of the rings comes from and Hartlepool where the legend Jeff Stelling comes from. However, this beer is a stonker. Read the other reviews if you want to know what it's like. I've got dusting to do.

Absolutely delicious. Not sure if the wax seal is such a good idea (almost broke my bottle opener), but it was worth it to get in to it. Red wine flavours overlap with a spicy malt taste. Amazing.

We should have been in Keswick for the week now. Having this is a sort of consolation, because it's Iike Keswick, awesome. Super strong, smooth and very tasty. Getting the wax off the top before you can open it is a pain though.

You remember back in 1994 when your Mum and Dad got a Soda stream and put red wine into it for a laugh when they were pissed? But it was shit? This isn't. Super dreamy red wine aged pint of dreams. Total one-off madness. Amazing. Sup slow or die.

Bought after a chat with the guys at Tooth & Claw and what a recommendation this was! The Rioja really shines through, this is genuinely a lovely brew and they deserve all the credit for this!

Wax sealed, unlike anything I've tried previously- red wine mixed into very floral tasting Belgian style beer, easy drinking too. Cheers.

A fruity, spicy, red wine in beer form? Genuinely never tasted anything like it.
