Brouwerij De Molen - Bommen & Granaten
Serving Temperature:55–62° F
Suggested Glassware:Snifter, Tulip, or Teku Glass
To round out this special offer of exceptional big beers, we’ve got some vintage Bommen & Granaten from Brouwerij De Molen. At over 15% ABV, this hefty barleywine serves as the perfect nightcap—packed with immense caramelization and smoothly integrated maltiness.
Bommen & Granaten pours a deep copper-brown color with a bit of viscosity to it, a light perimeter of tan foam formed. The aroma provides a good sense of what’s ahead: ripe and densely orchestrated fruits, smooth layers of caramelization, barely a whisper of its alcohol. For a 15%+ barley wine, this stays exceptionally smooth and mellow: dates, sweet nuttiness, a good balance of caramel and vinous/sherry character. A massive barley wine to get lost in.
The brewery suggests enjoying this one within 25 years, so feel free to set some bottles aside in the cellar. The deep caramelization and fruitiness, combined with the higher ABV, have us wanting to try this alongside spicy roast pork or on its own after dinner, poured in a snifter.
