Beaus Dubbel Koyt


Brewed by Beaus All Natural Brewing Co.
Vankleek Hill, Canada
Style: Traditional Ale | Ratings: 21 | Alcohol: 6.8%
This beer represents a journey back in time to 1515, just one year before the Purity Act began to take hold in Europe. This ancient style of beer is known as Dubbel Koyt and its origins lie in the town of Zutphen, The Netherlands. Its recipe was brought to our attention by beer researcher Ron Pattinson, who collaborated with us in brewing this historical re-creation. Not only is the Dubbel Koyt an un-hopped Gruit, but incredibly, the grist bill consists of 50% Oats, 20% Wheat, and only 30% Barley. The resulting beer is completely different from anything we have ever tried. The myrtle aroma is delicate, there are flavours of oats, wine, and honey, and the mouth feel is slick and coating, as only oatmeal can be. While certainly not for everybody, it should be experienced by any Beerophile. It provides the rare chance to taste beer as it might have existed centuries ago, as well as practical insight into the history of our beloved libation.

Tasting Notes
Aromas of Oatmeal, mead and Christmas spice. The mouthfeel is weighty and slick. Breakfast cereal sweetness in the flavour gives way to a drying and tannic finish.

Food Pairings
Porridge, Smoked Mackerel, Frittata
