Bearded Nurse is a Barley Wine aged in Macallan whisky barrels that was brewed in collaboration with Weird Beard’s Swedish distributors.
What’s more, it’s enormous.
The aroma is rum soaked peaches and the beer heats you through as you take a swig.
It’s a delicious, near smoky, whisky heat that works away in the background of the beer while the malts are thick and sticky with honey and Bramley apple juice.
There’s some spiky hedgerow hops too, and a twist of lemon, but mainly this is a boozy, gloopy, treacle tart and brandy snap joy of a beer.
