Details

From the historic Bosteels brewery comes something super special - a seasonal beer that’s as strong as it is decadent. This is a beer that slumbered in single batch barrels of Madeira and has absorbed all the notes of vanilla and caramel. This is a beer, in the British barley wine style, to enjoy in a small glass after dinner with a dark chocolate dessert, or perhaps an oozing brie. Make sure it’s a small glass, it is 12.5% after all.

Brewery Info

Bosteels brewery is older than the Belgian state itself, with a history reaching back to 1791. This family-owned brewery in the heart of Flanders has been brewing without interruption in the same location ever since, and is currently under the leadership of the 7th generation, Mr. Antoine Bosteels.

Their portfolio consists of just 3 beers although they're some of the most iconic in the world. Kwak, with its famous long glass, Tripel Karmeliet made with 3 grains, and the sparkling DeuS which is only around a decade old. With Bosteels brewers devoted to this unique range, its no wonder they win awards year after year.

Didn't know what to expect from this beer. A famous Belgium brewery making an English Style Barley Wine, aged in Madeira Barrels.
But it was beautiful balanced, not syrupy, full of body and alcohol. Wonderful sipping beer, enjoyed every last drop.
Is it worth £19.99? Probably not, but it was definitely worth the £10 it was selling for when I bought it.
Sublime.

Initially hesitant to open as worried about alcohol percent and being too strong tasting. No need to worry as the tastes and flavours in this beer are incredible. Drinking it like a spirit from a whiskey glass this is the best tasting beer i have ever drank. Definitely only a special treat at the price but already looking to get some more!!
