EUROPEAN BEER STAR 2018 - BRONZE - WOOD AND BARREL AGED STRONG BEER
Creating a barrel blend - a composition of different types of barrel aged beers - is both a science in itself and a great adventure with an uncertain outcome. But with experience, patience, and the right intuition, we end up with a result, that every great composition should aim for: being more than the sum of its components.
We store our 29 °P Imperial Stout on preused barrels of different origins, as we have used Bourbon, Tequila, Cognac, Sherry and Rum barrels in the past. Afterwards we blend the resulting beers in order to reach the most complex yet balanced taste-experience. Sometimes we also spice the resulting beer up with beers form our regular production line, as Black Rye IPA or our Imperial IPA have been known to fulfill that task. In any case, once every year the barrel blend is very unique and very limited.
