Barrel-aged and using a variety of yeasts; a study in patience

Barrel ageing, blending and using different yeasts, this embraces our love of the unpredictability of wild yeast with the subtlety and complexity of maturation in oak barrels. A study in patience, it takes at least 90 days for the wild yeast to work its magic.

Modus Operandi is the perfect accompaniment to red meat and game dishes, such as duck or venison, a beer that could easily replace a red wine on the dinner table.

A transformation of an old English ale into a beer that is Wildly different. A unique, dark, flavourful beer with a smooth, rich, full body and complex fruit flavours of berries, sweet cherries and tannins.

Wischylini (356) - Praha, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 19, 2015
Pours hazy dark brown, with a creamy tan head. The aromas are cherries, oak, vanilla, red wine (or port?), leather, tobacco, and horseblanket. The taste is moderately sour, with some subtle sweetness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is mouthpuckering, both from oak tannins and sourness. The carbonation is medium-low, and the body is full. One of the most complex, interesting and tasteful beers I’ve ever had.
