Core Beers - Black Magic Cask Aged

Black Magic

GOLD MEDAL WINNER – SIBA EAST BEER COMPETITION SEPTEMBER 2022!

Flavoured with Cocoa and hopped with Centennial, Citra, Chinook and Amarillo on top of a complex base of no less than 8 different malts.

A sumptuous cask aged chocolate porter, robust and rich, dark and decadent and supernaturally smooth. A clean bitterness and smooth mouthfeel complete the picture.

Oakham’s Cask Aged beers command a lot of the brewing team’s care and attention and these award-winning beers prove that it’s time well spent!

The process starts with great beer being brewed in the usual Oakham way, but at the end of the initial fermentation, yeast cells are removed from the beer.

This is because yeast gets tired and a bit bad tempered after working hard in the fermentation process and this can cause undesirable aromas and flavours.

So fresh yeast is introduced to complete the fermentation – a process known as “Krausening” and the method which ensures that Oakham’s Cask Aged beers taste so smooth and drinkable.

The beer is then racked in casks and cellared like a fine wine to allow development of the remarkable flavours and conditioning that characterize the Oakham Cask Aged range.

All of the Oakham Cask Aged beers are aged for at least 6 weeks – usually for much longer, with Black Magic being aged for at least 3 months.
