The XK is the baby brother of our XXXK barleywine. Using the residual weaker sugar wort from the brewing the high strength barleywine, we have brewed this ‘small beer’, adding chocolate and caramel malts to add further body and depth of flavour. This style is often referred to as a Mild. The aroma shows hints of chocolate, toasted oak, plums and herbs. On the palate, this balanced beer has notes of malt, red fruit and chocolate with a smooth finish.
