Banished Tough Love 2018
The sixth vintage of an annual favourite, this year’s Tough Love remains true to form – bold, yet wonderfully nuanced – with its own unique personality. After being banished to Kentucky Bourbon barrels under controlled conditions for nearly a year, rich overtones of dark roasted malt, oak-smoked wheat, and malted rye give way to delicate notes of velvety chocolate, vanilla, and dried cherries.
Kentucky Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout brewed with Blackstrap Molasses, and Spices.
