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.

SkillsFactory (549) - ITALY - JAN 10, 2016
Rossa con riflessi caramello, schiuma ocra non molto persistente. Aroma di toffee, zucchero di canna, biscotti al burro, albicocca, uva passa, whisky, note legnose, agrumate e floreali. Al palato gli stessi sentori si ripresentano uno ad uno insieme a una leggerissima nota di arancia candita e ad una bella coda etilica, lievemente piccante e zuccherina, seguita da un amaro erbaceo e leggermente tostato. Corpo pieno, carbonazione medio-bassa, oleosa.

Barwa miedziana, klarowna, widaż że piwo mocne ponieważ zostawia ’nóżki’ :P Piana niewielka, drobnopęcherzykowa i zwarta. Aromat złożony, ale przede wszystkim brak mi było amerykańskich chmieli. Owocowy, ciemne owoce, lukrecja, trochę miodu, odrobina wanilii i burbona. W smaku bardzo słodkie, no i alkohol całkiem nieźle wyczuwalny, później jest tylko więcej słodyczy. Słodkie wino, dojrzałe owoce, tak słodkie że przywodzi na myśl dżemy, albo konfitury. Wysycenie niskie w stronę średniego, półpełne, goryczka średnie z dodatkiem alkoholu i słodyczy.

Bottle. Almost clear in the glass, amber in color and with a small, beige head. The aroma is lightly alcoholic, with dried fruits, caramel and some faint roasted malts, there’s pine cones, resins and boozy, some bread crust, nuts and dark sugar. It’s full-bodied, warming and softly carbonated, with loads of flavors. bread, caramel, dried fruits, dark sugar, some wood, pine cones and resins and a decent bitterness. Lasting finish. Rather wonderful this one, sure complex, a beer that needs quite some time to be consumed, and it’s sure repeatable. 150814
