Henderson’s BEAST 2021: Rye Barrel Aged Imperial Amber Ale

| /

After nine months’ hibernation in rye barrels, The Beast has emerged. It is big, malty, heady & complex. It is a gentle beast, to be sure, but powerfully tasty.

This Rye Barrel Aged Imperial Amber Ale is a boozy one, with notes of sweet malt, vanilla, toffee, whiskey soaked cherries, musty oak, and resinous hops. 

A firm bitterness and drying tannins help to balance out the round sweetness, but we all agree, Henderson's Beast is always fit for a good, desserty, night-cap. 

Another thing that makes this ale so special is that it is perfect for aging! We suggest grabbing two bottles - one to drink now and one to save for later. 

Trust us, it will be worth the wait!
