With all those holiday gatherings coming down the pike, there are a lot of people to please.
Whether you’re hosting a party or just ensuring you don’t show up at one empty handed, you want to offer friends and family a beer to remember with excellent craftsmanship wrapped up in an arsenal of seasonal flavor. (And a high enough ABV to cut the awkwardness of small talk can’t hurt.)
With three gold medals to its name, Axiom is a Trappist Style Ale from the highly decorated Valiant Brewing Co. and when it comes to the holiday scene, it’s your ace in the hole.
Aged in bourbon barrels with seven different malt varieties, Axiom is a multi-layered, richly accented brew chock-full of cozy, winter flavors: spice, dark fruits, caramel and honey biscuits. A hearty addition of flaked oats provides its silky texture and Golding Hops are added for sixty minutes to round out Axiom’s heavy malt profile. The Belgian yeast wraps everything together into one mouth-watering, seasonal treat.
Pouring a luxurious burgundy with filigree lacing, Axiom’s aroma is a soothing flame to the frosty bite of winter. Toffee malts, crushed graham crackers, cherries and brandied-raisins fill the nose, leading into the flavor. The unmistakable stamp of Axiom’s barrel aging reveals itself in the vanilla-spiced bourbon notes weaving in and out of the malt bill while the nuanced lacing of herbal hops counters the spicy sweetness. The diverse mixture of malts remains strong on the broad, dry finish.
Grab a few bottles of Axiom to plan for the festive months ahead. With a decadent, malt driven complexity that will continue to evolve, Axiom will impress any palate it meets; be it now or three months from now.
And leave the fruitcake at home. No one wants the fruitcake.
