A Note on This Beer
In a harmonious pairing of Old World tradition with decidedly American flair, Sound Brewery infuses classic beer styles with unconventional hops and malts, while boasting imperial levels of ABV. Wowing craft fans and critics alike with their genre-bending brews, they’ve earned multiple honors from the GABF, World Beer Cup, and U.S. Open.
We’re bringing you a taste of the brewery’s skill with two of their biggest and booziest beers: Entendez Nöel Pale Quadruple Ale and Old Scoundrel Barleywine.
Entendez Nöel - This 11.8% ABV Belgian-style Pale Quadruple Ale goes beyond the style. While traditional Quads are notoriously sweet and darkly malted, Nöel’s brewed with Pilsner Malts, surprising with a distinctly clean, smooth mouthfeel.
Rare Motueka Hops punctuate the vanilla-soaked aroma with crisp citrus, while balancing the bready, caramel body with sensations of pineapple and muscat grapes. And despite its bombastic ABV, Nöel’s drinkability is shockingly effortless.
Old Scoundrel - Barleywines are beloved for their bottomless depths of malty complexity, but Sound’s 10.4% ABV incarnation gets a jolt from citrusy American Cascade Hops. In the nose, Cascade enrobes the toasty, caramel aroma with a zesty fragrance of white grapefruit and juniper berries.
Introducing Maris Otter Malts adds signature nuttiness to the Northwest stamp of piney resin. Layers of creamy, honeyed molasses capture the tongue with bready, herbaceous riches before a lingeringly warm, boozy finish.
Between Entendez Nöel’s thrilling take on Belgian mastery and Old Scoundrel’s hop-driven class, Sound Brewing’s command, and unique take on tradition, is crystal clear. We suggest grabbing the pair to get a full tasting appreciation of their revolutionary skills. If you want to go even further, snag up an extra bottle or two - both beers are destined for cellaring, as their complex array of flavors will only coalesce over time.
