De Molen Bloed, Zweet & Tranen (Blood, Sweat & Tears) (330ml Bottle)
Our groundbreaking series of beers is continued by Bloed, Zweet & Tranen. It’s a combination of English peat smoked malts and another smoked malt from Bamberg, Germany. Anyone who watched Fawlty Towers knows how hard it is to create a lasting peace between the English and Germans. It cost us blood, sweat and tears but we are convinced we succeeded. Maybe we should go into politics? No, we think not. We’re to good at brewing beer. Try it! It’s sweet, it’s bitter, has all kinds of berries in the flavour next to coffee and chocolate accompanied with of course smoke.
The classic smoked beers hail from Bamberg in Franconia, Germany. These are made using malt that has been smoked over beechwood. The insistent smokiness may be applied to any lager style. In North America, the same technique has been used to make smoked porter. Whiskey malt beers are made using peat-smoked malt.
