The story

Islay Barrel Aged Weizen Doppelbock

This is a beer that comes from Stephan, our German brewer. After brewing, the weizen doppelbock is aged in Scottish Islay casks, which previously contained smoky whisky. A weizenbock is a very strong weizen. Weizens are characterized by the use of at least 50% wheat malt and have a recognizable smell and taste of banana, one of the esters from the yeast. During barrel maturation, the beer takes on flavors from the wood, oxidation and the drink that first enters the barrel. sat. The wood gives slightly sweet flavors of vanilla and tannins. The oxidation provides an extra deep flavor with a port or Madeira-like note. You can often recognize raisins as a flavor in these types of beers. The taste of the drink is clear in this beer.
