Barrel Aged Beer Party @ Malt Share 桶陳啤酒趴 (中/英)

This Sunday we have a nice beer party at TaiChung’s Malt Share. The theme is “barrel aged beer”.

這個星期天我們在 Malt Share 開了一個 “桶陳啤酒趴”.

About Barrel Aged Beer 什麼是”桶陳啤酒”

A barrel aged beer is that after a beer (mostly ales) is fermented, it is stored in a wooden cask used to make stronger beverages like whisky or wine.

桶陳啤酒是在發酵完啤酒後 (大多是艾爾), 拿裝過酒精度較高的酒(像威士忌或葡萄酒)的木桶來繼續存放啤酒一段時間.

During the storage, the beer acquires additional fragrance and taste from the wooden cask.

在存放過程時, 啤酒從木桶中得到更多特殊的香氣和味道.

I drank this beer on tap at Taipei’s ChuoYinShi (啜飲室). A nice light sour, not too sweet beer for starter. The raspberry fragrance was awesome!

Cherry, plum, fresher than 1st one. More malty.

Only one word: Thick soy sauce (醬油膏)! This oatmeal stout smells exactly like soy sauce. Strong espresso taste.

6. Deschutes Abyss Imperial Stout (Mixed Barrels) 帝王多種酒桶桶陳司陶得

An imperial stout aged in bourbon, Oregon oak and pinot noir casks. Surprisingly with its complex brewing process this beer was more like typical Irish stout. Solid body with decent stout sourness.

在波本, 美國奧瑞剛州橡木桶和皮諾酒桶桶陳的帝王司陶得. 令人驚訝的是這款酒在這麼繁複的釀造過程后反而呈現像傳統的愛爾蘭司陶得. 渾厚酒體加上司陶得的酸味.
