Following on from the post I did about how awesome is to work in Beer Ritz and to share beer I thought it nice to share with you all an interesting tale about a beer I shared with Tom tonight when we shut-up.
The beer in question is one I brought back from UtoBeer in London's Borough Market; Bommen & Grananten!
A De Molen beast if there ever was one. This is what you may like to call an Imperial Barley Wine. An IBW you ask?, but Barley wines are already strong enough? Not this one! It destroys all your 'old skhool' ideas about what a barley wine is and shoves them down the drain.
This beer is 15.2%. Not your average barley wine now is it?
Bottle number 235. Good for 25 years if kept cool and dark, I could only wait 2.
This beer really interested me and Tom. It didn't really fit under my 'Perfect Beer' category, but it defo fit in my new 'Interesting Beer' category. The definition of an 'Interesting Beer' is one that you might not of thought as the best beer you've ever had, but one you will remember for ever. This ticked all the boxes.
Until we must open together again..........
