60 MONTH WILD ALE AGED IN SHERRY BARRELS
THE LOW DOWN
MAHOGANY (4.8%) is a Wild Ale aged in Sherry casks for 60 months under a layer of naturally-occurring Flor Yeast.
Pouring a clear copper/mahogany colour (hence the name), this beer instantly mesmerises you with strong Oloroso/Sherry characters that delivers a bold acid backbone coupled with oxidative characters from resting in wood for 5+ years without any top up of the casks.
Over-ripe cherries and other red fruits dance on your tongue however the aged and seasoned wood has the last say with a musty/cellar-like finish.
‘This was an interesting trial using sherry barrels and one that we are delighted with, considering the oxidative-forward nature of leaving beer that long in casks. The strong balsamic notes evoke a call for food and in particular red meat such as minute steaks or other thin cuts of meat to be enjoyed in front of a warm fire with friends.’
