COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A belgian beer with added port "quinta do burcheiro reserva" from the Portugal Duoro-region.

This a "ruby" port that had matured for 7 years in oak barrels. The combination gives a very suprising taste. The fermentation in the bottle gives the beer even more evolution after years, into a very "vintage" beer.

Beer brewed with care to be consumed carefully.
Pilsner, Vienna, Cara 50, Cara 120, Special B & Choco 850 malts. Styrian Goldings, East Kent Goldings, Saaz, Cascade & Amarillo hops. 145 EBC
