Meet Black Jacques & AB:16
Two bizarre new brews for you
Today, we launch two incredibly limited edition brews; Black Jacques, an imperial black saison aged in red wine barrels (approach with caution, this beer is weird) and AB:16, the latest concept beer in our Abstrakt series, this time styling it out as a Belgian Quad. Delicious and dangerously luxurious.

Pick a card. Play the game.
This once simple Belgian farmhand has been twisted beyond recognition by time, fate and lengthy imprisonment in French oak.
Today he flits like rumour from barren highland to moonlit vineyard, hunting down clues to a long-forgotten past. A burnt barrel, a tattered tricolore, a shattered wine glass – the secrets of his nefarious past are there, yet they elude his restless eye.
A one of a kind card counting freak with a mind as brilliantly fragile as a Faberge egg. Unloved, unwelcome and all the richer for it.
Who said the simple life was best?
This imperial black saison is one of the weirdest beers we've ever encountered. Aged in red wine barrels for no less than 268 days, it whispers kola, mint humbug, chocolate, coffee, oak and spice. There's banana, espresso, brandy and a clean herbal warmth there too, against a red wine robustness. It's smooth and light yet dark and strange all at once. The ageing has added a whole new life to this saison, which in itself was uncharacteristic of its namesake thanks to dark malts. A bizarre, beautiful, beguiling beer.
It also features some pretty epic artwork from the slightly-insane-but-in-a-very-good-way Serge Seidlitz. Keep an eye out for more cool custom bottle art on future limited edition brews too!

The latest in our extra artisanal offshoot, AB:16 is a smooth and luxuriant Belgian Quad, infused with coffee beans. Warming clove and nutmeg on the nose, cafe au lait, subtle dark fruits and hints of candied lemon peel.
Ginger cake and malt loaf, smooth and fruity espresso, chocolate and warm, brandy-soaked currants all abound in this latest Abstrakt beer.
