Baylands Glasgow Slasher (500ml Bottle)
First brewed to celebrate 21 years of an absolute icon of the Wellington beer scene, The Malthouse, Glasgow Slasher is a big bold American barley wine featuring 21 different malts and a ridiculous volume of US hops.
Naturally we named it in honour of Colin, the Handsome yet Softly Spoken Proprietor* of said bar. If you can avoid temptation Glasgow Slasher will continue to improve with age... if you cannae resist it's still a wee beauty right now.
*We borrowed this eloquent description of Colin from the humble yet often awarded beer writer Neil Miller.
A Barley Wine is a strong, top-fermenting ale, with an alcohol contents of at least 9% and up to 13% (or more) by volume. Hops may be hardly noticeable at all or very noticeable. Sip them out of the special glass, that will concentrate the aroma. They are excellent with cigars or with dessert.
