This Beer has been carefully cellared by Hop, Vine and Still for your Enjoyment
The Birthday comes hand in hand with the very remarkable Russian Imperial Stout or better known, this year, as Descent 21. It is a beer held in high esteem for Richard and Tracy who chose this style of beer as a celebration to their hard work and a way to create and share something special with the community, followers and lovers of BentSpoke beers. The Beer is a 10% stout that feels like starting a downhill descent into the unknown. Aged in bourbon barrels for 12 months allowing the vanilla, whisky and wild yeast characters to invade this RIS. The roasty, bitter black malt and leather like esters from the stout integrated with the wild yeast characters from bourbon barrel aging complete this winter warmer!!
Richard Watkins said, ‘Descent 21 like it’s seven predecessors is a great combination of barrel ageing and roasty malty flavours that give you warmth, composure and sense that you have conquered winter”
This RIS has become a local favourite and will be available on tap at the BrewPub in Braddon and in cans for a limited time. Check back here throughout the week to find out more about where you can find this winter warmer. Cheers!
