Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri – Big Blak

Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri  is a staple for craft beer lovers  in Oslo and has long been a late night haunt for us.  After spending the weekend and becoming instant friends with Pushkin and Morten at Bergen Øl Festival, both breweries were keen to collaborate, and decided to brew an Imperial Black Wheat IPA.

‘Big Blak’ , is not quite a unicorn, but is also not quite your average field horse either.  Sitting at 9.1%, it definitely qualifies the title of “Imperial”, with a good flavour of roasted malts while also keeping the IPA badge alive with a hoppy aroma and a balanced hop bitterness finish.  We are super happy to have brought Big Blak to life with ‘Schous’ and look forward to many more collabs in the future as we also try to make our way into the diets of the late night craft beer lovers.
