Barrel aged beers have become increasingly popular in the craft beer fraternity and by beer aficionados the world over. Beer aged or served from wood is not a recent phenomenon by any means; beer was kept in wooden casks and vats until the advent of first aluminium and then stainless steel casks. The big difference between that and the barrel aging technique is the use of barrels from another drinks industry to add different character to a type of beer, sherry, bourbon, scotch, rum, wine and other barrels have all been used to great effect. Part of the art of barrel aging is creating beer that has both the character of the barrel and the character of the original beer.

We’ve melded together the character of a strong American ale, heavily toasted oak barrel and Rum to create a triumphantly aromatic and complex beer that suits contemplative drinking studying the myriad of overlaid flavours and aromas.

Our beer pours a deep ruby red with a lovely creamy fluffy head. Oak and deep toffee caramel dominate the aroma of this beer, there are hints of rum that promise further delights. On the palate this beer has a complex array of flavours, all at once it’s malty, has a strong vanilla and oak character and has a subtle sweet rum character that overarches the beer and holds it all together, delicious.

Young's Home Brew developed the American beer kit range to bring the best of American craft brewing to the UK.
The approach is simply based on the same philosophy as the American craft brewing industry.
Only the best and freshest ingredients are used not sacrificing quality over cost.
What really sets this range apart is the use of specially selected yeasts including US West Coast Ale dried yeast sourced from an American craft brewery and Newcastle Dark Ale yeast.
All used to bring out the wonderful flavoursome liquid malt extracts with progressive style hops - skillfully combined to bring you a truly inspired range of premium quality American craft beer kits.

Customer Comment:

The oak chips are more like dust and spelks than wood chips, I was expecting them to be bigger. Concerned that some would end up in the bottles I siphoned through a straining bag. Dont let that put you off, maybe add them to the FV in a muslin bag or filter when siphoning like I did. Still conditioning so I havent had a proper go yet but tasted when bottling, very pleasant and the oak came through well but at the same time not overpowering. Finished at 6%abv, close to the advertised approx 6.2, not worth splitting hairs over
