Tasting Notes

Old Fangled – Cognac Barrel Aged English Mild with Brett.

With complex aromas of cherries, dates, light chocolate, and oak. Cognac barrel character and subtle brett yeast mingle to create a unique array of notes not normally found in an English Mild Ale. The palate sees fruit notes that mix with toasted bread, treacle, pain au chocolat, and leathery funk. There is subtle acidity that blends nicely with the dry finish.

Best enjoyed at a cool, but not cold temperate to fully appreciate the character.


You may recall “Darling” from Tata, a lovely 3.5% abv English Mild Ale. The brewers took some of that Mild Ale and transferred it into a used Cognac barrel along with Brett Lambicus yeast and let get all funky for 10 months. The natural yeasts inside the barrel along with the Brett yeast create a finished beer that is better than the sum of its parts. The beer was can conditioned (refermented in the can) to create a tightly woven carbonation texture.
