We kept a quarter of the brew in stainless steel and put the rest into rum barrels for secondary fermentation. The barrels are from from Beenleigh Rum Distillery, the oldest registered distillery in Australia, commencing operations in 1884. Three of our brewers, Alana, Kenny, and Naz, spent days painstakingly assessing each barrel to decide which ones, and how much from each, would make it into the final blend. The result of their dedication is a deceptively smooth 9.0% porter with pleasant rum characters throughout.
Polished mahogany with garnet highlights.
Rich dark malts, with a balanced spirit character from the judicious blending of barrel matured beer.
Full-bodied palate of chocolate and rum, with a moderate coffee-like bitterness.
