Cantillon - Wild Brussels Stout - Zwanze15. This is my pick for #internationalstoutday. "Ceci n’est pas un Stout / This is not a stout” says Cantillon.. This is their allusion to famous Belgian surrealist artist René Magritte’s "Treachery of Images". What we want is hidden behind what we see..this might look like a traditional stout but it has for sure the “Zwanze" twist on. Recipe contains no roasted barley while raw wheat is used to give beer, creamy texture and increased shelf life to endure 28 months long cask maturation. Three types of barrels were used : Half of them were emptied lambic barrels while the rest is divided into Côtes du Rhône wine and Cognac barrels. Dark brown with ruby highlights, very thin mocha head that diminish as quick as Fou' Foune stocks. Nose has sour cherries, vanilla, cocoa powder, leather, oak and tons of wine character with bit of alcohol presence(most likely from the cognac barrels). Taste is with acetobacter vinegar upfront..reminiscing a Flemish red.. cherries and prunes follows ..bitter tannins bring astringent like sensation at the back of your mouth with wheat bread / cracker like finish. Mouthfeel is soft with mid body. Happy International Stout Day folks !
