Notes: Old ale initially fermented with Belgian trappist yeast in and matured in bourbon and cognac barrels with Garden Party. The secondary fermentation with wild yeast transforms the yeast flavours into complexity without much acidity. Fat, intense aroma of dried fruits, coconut, vanilla and coffee. The sweetness is complemented by raisin, dark rye bread and chocolate and balanced by warming alcohol. Extended maturation on lees provides almost meaty flavours not unlike bacon.
