Badlands Announce Decade Anniversary Stout Series – or BADASS for short – is a four-pack birthday release featuring four iterations of the same beer. Head brewer and managing director Jon Shiner said it is to show the different characteristics and techniques of each production step, thus illuminating how the final beer was crafted.
“The tagline for this release is: ‘A drinkable history of a beer in four steps’. We want beer lovers to try each of the four beers in the order that it came into being,” Shiner said.
“We want them to taste the final beer Quad, which is the one we set out to brew initially, having tried these three other amazing beers first and hopefully gain an insight into how we got there.
The first beer is called Singular – a Nitro Strong Stout 8% . It is the beer as the Germans would brew it, with just the four key ingredients of malted barley, water, hops and yeast to the fore.
The second is Duo 8% – a 100 per cent rum-barrel conditioned Nitro Strong Stout, which was temporarily homed in a Stone Pine Distilleries Dead Man’s Drop barrel – the first and only barrel to be released from the Bathurst distillery in its 12-year history.
The third is Trinity 8% – a cocoa and vanilla rendition of Singular, which uses single-origin cacao beans from Vanuatu, which were roasted by Spencer Cocoa of Mudgee, twinned with vanilla beans grown in the top-end by Broken Nose Vanilla.
The fourth and final beer is Quad 8% – which is the Trinity with the barrel-conditioned beer blended back into it. Or “the whole kit and kaboodle” as Shiner put it.
