Dogs Of War Samurai Shiba 2021.1 – Islay Barrel Centennial Barley Wine
The “Dogs Of War” series is a bi-annual release of barrel-aged beers from the Torrside Brewing based at New Mills. The amazing artworks for the labels are the creations of artist Emma Sidwell.
Samurai Shiba is an Islay Barrel Centennial Barley Wine. The base beer for this was absolutely stunning and with a typically Torrside nod to peat and smoke, the Islay barrel should elevate it to new heights.
Torrside brew no-nonsense beers with passion, interesting, full-flavoured, often a little crazy but with no compromises, and that’s the way I like it. Take a look at their other beers here.
