Brewery – Buxton Brewery

Location – Buxton (duurrr), Derbyshire.

The Drink: Double Axe

ABV: 10.4% – 330mL

Style: Barrel Aged Double IPA

Additional info: Brewed to celebrate their 200th gyle, suitable for cellar again (bottled: 05/04/2016)

Pouring with a wispy but retained white head its colour is a deep, deep gold, it has apparently been aged in Armagnac (brandy) barrels. It has a very subtle nose for such a big beer, certainly hoppy but very restrained.  The taste is thick syrup, honey-like but so very smooth with a light bitterness in the after taste.  Another dangerous drink that doesn’t taste its strength.

 

Brought to by….Tad…who are fucking ace…
