Technical: Blend of 3-, 2-, and 1-Year matured Méthode Traditionnelle Primitive Beers. The 3-Year component of our Cursed Heirloom spent the third year of aging in fresh Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks. Young spontaneous beer was used to fuel bottle refermentation in this blend.
Flavor Notes: This beer showcases flavor characteristics more akin to Sherry-cask aged Scotches than many beers, presenting a big nose of tar, tobacco, leather and burnt raisin with a drying tannic sensation on the tongue. Smoke, overturned earth, and wood linger on the palate, begging for contemplation and an ostentatious smoking jacket. Assertively dry and oaky with restrained carbonation and moderate volatile acidity, this beer benefits from “opening up” for an hour in your favorite cursed family decanter… we all have those, right?
