Strong Dark Ale

These strong, dark ales are all quite malty and strong and are the perfect winter warmer. Whether it's in the form of a well-balanced and slightly-more-hoppy American barleywine or the Scotch Ale with its full-bodied dessert-like qualities,

One of the strongest beer styles available, Barleywine can be sweet, bittersweet, lively and fruity but its always high in alcohol. Flavours range from intense fruit to intense hops, with American versions more hoppy and English versions more rounded and balanced between malt and hops. The strength and complex flavours of barleywine can be a challenge to the palate, but it certainly makes for an interesting brew.

Weizenbock is a ‘bock-strength’ version of dunkelweizen, a dark wheat beer. A high alcohol content, complex malt flavours and dark fruits characterise this beer.

Scotch Ales traditionally go through a long boil in the kettle to caramelise the wort, producing a deep copper-brown coloured brew. With a pronounced caramel and roasted malt flavour, they’re higher in alcohol, sweeter and fuller-bodied than your usual Scottish ale.

In terms of service and speed of delivery Beer Hawk performed well but in terms of the beer selection, it is not for me. I bought two cases, one was a selection of Scottish beers and the other a mixed case of Great British beers, thirty bottles all told. Unfortunately most of them where produced by brewers who are over infatuated with new world hops, not so much a beer but more like grapefruit juice. I do not dislike citrus hops but I like the recipes to be balanced and in the majority of cases they were not. Thinking that I was just unlucky, I had another look through the British beer list this morning, a disappointing selection, so I will not be re-ordering.
Absolutely fantastic service, great range of beers (that are hard to find in the UK) and rapid delivery! We would 100% confidently recommend Beer Hawk to anyone. We've never had a problem with the service, items are well packaged and each time we have ordered our items have arrived in two days... which is nice! Keep up the great work Team BH because we love it!
Awesome quick delivery and the guys and girls that run the place have a great sense of humor!
