So far I have found out that the beer is 8.5% with a starting gravity of 16 plato. That would mean it ferments down to 0
which I find hard to believe having had the beer last week. Main malt is Pilsner with some darker malts and candi syrup for color. Hops used are Styrian Goldings, Tomahawk (probably for bittering), and Czeach Saaz. No idea of how many IBU's but the website (Achouffe) mentions the beer has a "bitter bite".
There seems to be some speculation (both ways) that a spice is used. No indication of which one. Anybody have any thoughts on that?
