Not your typical “Jelly of the Month Club” beer. Dark roasted malt and bittersweet cocoa and coffee flavor and aroma burst from this pitch black milk stout. The full body and sweetness are derived from the addition of lactose (aka milk sugar) which is not fermentable by beer yeast. A healthy dose of Nugget and Crystal hops provides a counterpoint to this ale’s rich and complex maltiness.
The Lone Crusader.
No beer is above the law around here, including Gnight Ryder. This imperial black ale is interred in red wine barrels and emerges unrecognizable. It’s not the general, it sure ain’t the sheriff, it’s the Gnight Ryder.
Style: Imperial Black Ale aged in Red Wine Barrels
This beer was made in homage to what the monks left behind in the garden of earthly delights. Our Belgian-style Abbey Ale is brewed with Belgian Pilsen malt, a dash of wheat and additions of dark Munich and Caramel malts. Hopped in the mildest to provide a simply, subtle balance, this beer is a showcase for malt and the star of the show: yeast. Belgian Abbey yeast was used for primary fermentation, and then we aged this beer for nigh on 9 months with Brettanomyces for a biiiiiig fruity, complexity and a dry finish to balance out all that caramel goodness. Like a plum tart, this beer has juicy fruitiness, and a browned, sugary maltiness. Those monks may take a vow of silence, but this beer speaks volumes.
Style: Belgian Strong Ale
Big, ballsy, barmy and barrel aged. London Balling is not typical. It's a skirmish of flavour. The barrel imparts oak and vanilla, mixed with the caramel sweetness from a malt bill with brick, that'll knock your bloody bollocks around. Hey bloke?...fancy that, and you'll be gobsmacked.
Style: Barley Wine
A truly ground breaking beer, this Barrel aged Rauchbier was an attempt to replicate the flavors present in Islay Scotch Whiskey. We used Munich malt as a base and added copious amounts of Beechwood and Peat smoked malt, which provides the intense smoky and earthy peat flavors found in Scotch. Then the addition of Alderwood smoked salt lends a crisp brininess that is reminiscent of the sea air in the Islay region of Scotland. Aged in used Angel's Envy Bourbon Barrels to give an intense caramel, vanilla and whiskey flavour.
Style: Smoked ale
This Belgian table bier is a traditional entry into the Session category. It is meant to be consumed with food but also stands well on its own. Look for
a smooth malty body with hints of biscuit and rye. The hops are subdued and mostlypresent as a bittering agent. The yeast plays a prominent role increating bready and lightly fruity notes.
Style: Belgian Blonde Ale
This is the brown ale to end all brown ales. Enjoy it, because there's no longer any reason to drink another brown ale. You've reached the pinnacle. The Disco Bump. The Brown Note. Drink this beer or shit yourself trying.
Style: Brown Ale
A collaboration beer between Mikkeller and Against the Grain Brewery. Simply a Blood Orange Pilsner. Brewed with German Pilsner and munich malts, hopped with American Citra, Columbus, Amarillo and Czech Saaz and fermented with Danish lager yeast. Then we added the zest and juice from a shit-ton of blood oranges. The result is a refreshingly tart lager, with big citrus aroma worthy of even the hippest of Danish drinkers.
Style: Lager (with Blood Orange!)
