Port Wine Barrel Aged Dessert Strong Ale
First this was a sweet fruity beer seasoned with orange peel and vanilla. It was also a beer that was more than the sum of its parts. And to make it more complex we let it rest on port wine barrels for a bit. Sweet winey nectar!
Before the beer Sweet Sweet, we had brewed four beers together with our good friends at Wiper and True of Bristol, U.K. So, when they found themselves in Gothenburg, naturally, they came out to the brewery and brewed a fifth one. Our collaborations have always been full on flavors and pushing boundaries. It can be using a, for us, new fruit, a weird yeast or adding whatever tree we can find in the yard. For Sweet Sweet, we decided to try and invent something completely new. A dessert beer, a pastry, that is not a stout. Then, we put that beer into port wine barrels. Devine!
