Green Man Strong (500ml Bottle)
Awarded 'Editors Choice' in the #1 beer mag in the UK, Beers of the World. This is a blend of 2 beers; a Doppelbock was matured on whisky barrel wood for 2 months then blended with Best Bitter, resulting in an amazingly complex beer with delightful whisky, vanilla and oak flavours and aromas. Finishes with very approachable hop and whisky notes. BRONZE MEDAL winner at the NZ International Beer Awards June 2008.
A Doppelbock, aged in whisky barrels for three months, and then blended with fresh Best Bitter. Some whisky flavour is evident, joined by the charred whisky barrel flavours and the remaining sweetness from the Doppelbock. The Best Bitter provides a vehicle for the other flavours, and contributes its own smoked malt and hoppy characteristics.
The dark Bock has a deep copper to dark brown color. Medium to full-bodied, malt sweetness and nutty or light toasted flavors dominate. Hop flavor and aroma can be light to non-existent.
