OIBF Collaboration Brew: For our collaborative brew with Buxton we decided to brew a Scotch Ale, but as our first collaboration with Buxton use plenty of US hops so it is more like an IPA. The base is what we thought would be appropriate for a Scotch Ale: some toasted and caramelized malts including Special B with gives raisiny flavor. To Enhance the dried fruit flavor we added figs and raisins in the hopback and picked hop varieties known for their dark fruit flavors.Bramling Cross and Pacific Gem in the kettle, Cascade and Mosaic in the hop back and Simcoe and Cascade as dryhops.

bartlebier (3815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2017
33cl bb07/2017 from Oedipus 6er collab sampler, Gouda. - Short: more resiny than raisiny dry sherry of a Scotch... The figs and raisins add an unusual earthy dryness instead of fruity sweetness to the amber strong ale infrastructure. Also reminiscent of an aged white porto. Enjoyable in a strange, dare I say PoMo calvinist way: dryhop over candy indulgences - but needs to be paired with a sweet fruit dessert to brings out its dormant potential...

caesar (6972) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle from Biernavigatie, bottling date 22/07/2016 BB 22/07/2017, 33 cl sample. Slight hazy copper color, medium frothy head with lasting lacing. Aroma has burned caramel, slight spices and dried fruit. Soft sweetness, again with burned notes, caramel, toffee, spices and dried fruit. Medium carbonation makes it look good, but it is a tad harsh and full bodied because of it. Belgian styled ale, which a Scotch is, that has plenty to offer, but is not gonna be a classic for me. Decent though.

mjik83 (1460) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2016
33cl flesje bij Naovenant, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 8% Uitgeschonken in origineel Oedipus glas Uiterlijk: donkerbruin met redelijke schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: voornamelijk bloemig en hoppig, caramel, gebrande mouten, pijnboom, fruitige van de rozijnen en vijgen Conclusie: fruitige proefde ik bijna niet helaas ondanks de moeite om rozijnen en vijgen te gebruiken, wellicht een wat betere balans vinden tov de dryhop
