EPOCHAL The Fixed Stars - 375ml
Brewed to a 19th Century Glasgow recipe using large quantities of amber malt, this beer pours deepest chestnut brown with stiff meringues of pale brown foam. The aroma has lots of nutty malt character - hobnobs, pecan brittle, cocoa and espresso. There is also brett funky of a subtle, cherryish sort and the faintest whisper of acetic character. It has floral notes from a delicate Goldings dry hop and a combination of intensity, lightness and bitterness on the palate.

EPOCHAL BARREL-AGED BEERS - Epochal brewery makes beer with a sense of place. Whether through use of local barley, unique house microflora, our special Scottish water, the impact of climate on the aging process or inspiration drawn from local brewing traditions, Epochal beer is particular to Scotland and to the brewery itself. All of Epochal’s beer is fermented with our house Saccharomyces culture in open fermenters before a long, slow fermentation in wood with our house Brettanomyces strains. This process creates inimitable, complex, delicious flavours which were once common in Scottish beer.
While Scottish brewing history provides us with much inspiration, we are just as inspired by modern craft beer, contemporary brewing science and our creative curiosity as by the beers of the past. Our beer is modern and our own, but with roots in Scotland’s brewing heritage. Epochal specialises in barrel fermented stock pale ales, table beers, porters, stouts and Scotch ales. Some of these we’ve released already, whereas some haven’t arrived yet - when you’re fermenting them in wood, these things take time. They’ll be good though.
