De Moersleutel is the most recent addition to our portfolio. They are four young brothers, and with the part time help of their mother and father, began commercial operations two years ago in June 2016.
The boys are self-confessed beer geeks, originally warning me that they prefer to focus on ‘outspoken beers’! We’ve had two shipments from them now, and I can confirm that each and every one of their beers are indeed delicious, and anything but understated.
The name translates as ‘lubricating oil’ and it is an apt description of this heavy duty imperial stout.
This beer has a magnificent aroma, laden with deep roasted malts and dried fruits. There is dark chocolate and roasted malt featuring heavily in the taste, along with dried red stone fruits, coffee and a slight hint of smoke.
With a thick, heavy mouthfeel this is still a very easy drinking big stout. Let it sit out and warm a little and the flavours and aromas will really open up.
