COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg and bottled, special
An epic fusion of age old Belgian tradition, American new wave brewing and the world of Scotch whisky.
Mix Tape 8 is a blend of two huge oak aged beers – half a hopped up Belgian Tripel, and half a Triple India Pale Ale. These beers have both been aged in single grain whisky barrels for close to two years and finally blended to create a beer that our head brewer Stewart Bowman can most helpfully describe as ‘fucking complex’.
Mix Tape 8 is a high octane blend of styles, influences and processes. This beer is a blend of 2 huge oak aged India Pale Ales. Half of this beer is rooted in an amped up, hopped up Belgian Tripel which has been aged in Scotch Whisky casks for almost 2 years. The other half of the equation is a triple India Pale Ale which has also been aged in Scotch Whisky barrels for close to 2 years. This beer is inspired by the Belgian Monastic brewing tradition and its centuries of heritage, the hopped up American new wave craft brewing and everything that rocks about Scotch Whisky barrels and oak aging.

ogniskowicz (360) - POLAND - APR 20, 2015
Aromat: przepiękne nuty słodowe, cherry, toffi, karmelu, w połączeniu z świetnym aromatem chmielu, nutami belgijskimi (rodzynki, suszone śliwki), zwieńczone nutami beczkowymi (wanilia, drewno, tytoń, whisky) Miazga Wygląd: idealnie klarowne, ciemno-bursztynowe Smak: mocarna słodowa baza, przypominająca najlepsze barley wine, nuty suszony przejrzałych owoców, tytoniowo-alkoholowe grzanie, świetna, bardzo wysoka goryczka kontrująca wszystko. Niskie wysycenie, mnóstwo aromatów beczkowych (wanilia, cherry, drewno), lekka Belgia w tle. Zmiażdżyło mnie, jedno z najlepszych piw jakie dane mi było wypić.
