Deth’s Tar is brewed with a host of wonderful specialty malts, flaked oats and oat malt to impart a rich, silky mouthfeel and deep, complex malt flavours and aromas reminiscent of dark baker’s chocolate, fresh brewed coffee and caramel candy.
ABV: 11.4% | IBU: 40
This extremely limited honey wine was aged in bourbon barrels for 36 months. It is sweet and rich with a subtle vanilla flavour and toasted bourbon notes. Episode 13 has a lingering sweetness with a caramel aftertaste.

Get ready for a tropical hop hit from beyond the stars! The aroma is chock-full of super-fruity US hop aroma – think juicy pineapple, tart citrus, stone fruit, boiled lollies and bubblegum.
