There is a new batch of the Hel & Verdoemenis Wild Turkey, but 11%!!!
The old one was 13%, is this the same beer or is the aging less??

This is the reason why there are two entries for "De Molen Kopi Loewak Coffee Stout" on here so...

Seems this batch didnít soak as much Wild Turkey than the previous one, so no new entry!
Kopi Loewak wasnít put on barrels, so the change is due to the beer itself.
Black Tuesday and many other famous American Stouts also vary in ABV, yet donít get a new entry.
So to me I donít see a valid reason why to give a new entry for H&V Wild Turkey (or even Kopi Loewak), unless the base recipe changed significantly

Agreed with not a new entry. Abv variability is expected. Doesnít sound like a major recipe change. Even then, recipe changes donít always warrant a new entry.

Thatís right, La Granja with Canadian maple syrup was warranted no new RB entry, with an entirely new flavoriadjunct.

At any rate the maple was vry subtle.

One might ponder that the more times you use a barrel the less there is left of the previous stuff for natural causes.

Also, this batch was most likely brewed on a completely different brewsystem, and a much bigger one in comparison.

I expect things to change due to this, although I do think that the intent and goal of the brewer has not changed for this beer.

Iíd vote for a new entry, but Iím no expert on this. 2% abv less or more can change quite a bit about the taste and mouthfeel.

Stop thinking about the ticks and think about the beer itself ! sorry but 2% abv less doesnít change at all, have you ever done a full line of Black Teusday ? well i did thanks to 2 great people and believe me 2% doesnít change a thing ...

And like said before, itís about how much bourbon is still soaked in the wood is what affects how much more alcohol the beer will make, and if thatís what makes it different in your eyes then ratebeer wouldnít have 150.000 beers but 300.000 beers.
