Saints Whisky Beer is the result of a partnership between two English 'saints': St. Peter's Brewery in Suffolk and St. Georges Distillery, 30 miles away in neighbouring Norfolk. The aptly named beer is produced using the same peated malt used at St. George's Distillery in its whisky production.
Following fermentation, the distillery's Chapter 9 peated malt whisky is added to the beer prior to bottling.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 23/09/2011
Clear, burnished copper-amber with a lasting medium white head.
Hickory wood smoked with obvious oaky whisky influence and vegetal, farmyard dung aromas.
Smoked whisky flavours meld well with classic English bitter malty hoppy ale. The farmyard dung found on the nose traverses the palate (in a good way).
Smoky notes linger like a very smoky rasher of bacon.
