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.

OH MY GOD! This is a GREAT beer! It has a supurb mouthfeel, a thickness to it, that makes you feel its really dark, and a hop menu that is to die for! This may be the finest beer that BrewDog have EVER made. As a blend of Scotch whisky aged Belgain quad and a Scotch whisky aged Imperial IPA... this is OUTRAGOUS! I love dark beers, but OH MY GOD! This beer is INSANE!

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - APR 1, 2016
Color ambra/rubino con un cappello di schiuma biancastra non molto persistente. Al naso è densa e avvolgente e colpisce subito con sentori di frutta matura, frutta esotica, luppolo e caramello; al palato è prima dolce, rotonda, liquorosa poi calda, vinosa, pungente e amarognola. Il finale è pulito, per nulla stucchevole, nonostante l’abbondantissimo corpo e il sapore generoso; abv ben celato. Un tripudio di note di uva, toffee, malto, prugne, luppoli americani, zucchero a velo, scotch, pan di spagna, marmellata di albicocche, sciroppo d’acero, chinotto... ogni sorso è "nuovo" ha una complessità spiazzante. Birra esagerata ed estrema, un’esperienza indimenticabile.
