Vintage Ale 2014




Tasting Notes:

This beer is brewed from the recipe of an old barley wine, bottles of which were found in the brewery cellars, having laid there for 31 years.  The beer had originally been 'laid down' in the late 1970s by George Bateman, to be enjoyed in April 1981, to celebrate Stuart Bateman's 21st birthday.  However, the beer was forgotten about! The 'rediscovered' beer was from the last bottling of Batemans BBB.

The recipe is a blend of malts from Flagon and Tipple barleys and single variety Worcester Golding hops.  After maturing in oak, the beer has flavours of plums, port, malt, brandy vanilla and almonds.

Tasting Notes:

Dark amber and full of rich, fruity sultana and raisin flavours fused with crunchy pale, crystal and chocolate malts.  The English Golding and Challenger hops produce a succulently spicy aroma.
