After nine months’ hibernation in bourbon barrels, The Beast has emerged. It is big, malty, heady & complex. It is a gentle beast, to be sure, but powerfully tasty. Henderson’s Beast 2021 is our way of saying thank you to all of you who’ve helped make brewing beer for our city the Best!
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!
