BA Black Boar
The Third Edition of the Barrel Aged Black Boar, is an intensely flavoured big, dark ale. Roasty and bittersweet, with a noticeable alcohol presence. Dark fruit flavours meld with roasted coffee and dark chocolate notes to create a full bodied velvety, luscious texture. Aged in 12-year Bourbon barrels for 3 months to enhance this already complex beer with soft oak and lush vanilla.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
