Antwerp, as the people of Antwerp often say, is the capital of Belgium. Luckily we know better…
Galea is starting to get a bit known for it. Muddy Stouts, each with its own unique character.
Antwerp is a recent creation and one that will definitely remain in their range.
A full, moderately sweet and slightly thicker Stout with a recognizable taste of cinnamon.
As if that wasn’t enough, they let the Antwerp base beer mature for 6 months in Jamaican Rum barrels.
Beers in Rum barrels are always a gamble and certainly not easy.
The Rum barrel maturation comes through rather subtly and certainly does not dominate the basic beer.
A very nice and successful edition of this Antwerp on Jamaican Rum barrels!
