Brad Peat er en engelsk barleywine brygget med laktose, chipotlechili, aroma fra mandel, pekan, valnøtter og lagret på en bladning fra fransk og amerikansk eik. Et øl som virkelig får frem essensen av “nøtter og tørket frukt” som mange forbinder med stilen. Men Brad Peat er en luring, for han er også brygget med røykmalt og chipotlechili, som gir et delikat og moderat preg av chili og røyk, som raskt går over til lette eiketoner.

Dette er en helt spesiell barleywine, som ikke er så søt at et blir for mye av det gode. Et virkelig spesielt øl, med så mange smaker at den ikke helt vet hvem den er.
br /> Brad Peat is an English barleywine brewed with lactose, chipotle peppers, and aroma from almonds, walnuts, and pecans which has been mellowed by a careful soak over French and American oak. This beer is very forward in the nut and fruit aromas generally associated with the style. But Brad Peat is deceptive, because he’s also been brewed with smoked malt and chipotle. This gives it a delicate hint of chili and smoke, which quickly transforms to a more subtle note of oak.

This is a unique barleywine -- not so sweet that it gives you too much of the good stuff, but also complex enough that it almost defies deScription.
