The Kompaan Foreign Legion was formed in 2017. It started out as a bunch of different beer styles from around the world infused with an experimental twist, and a lot of ‘em went M.I.A. over the years. That’s why every year around November we’re left with the six toughest, most hardened - mostly barrel aged - veterans fit for true hardcore craft beer enthusiasts. Enjoy & Beware!
A red headed amber coloured thunderbolt with a high and tight white army style foam head. Napalm style smokey and caramel aromas, and a little hint of stone fruit go well with his blunt character. He might taste sweet at first, with hints of red fruit and smoked meat, but will surprise you with a huge kick of smoke in his aftertaste.
She rocks an amber golden color, with a smooth white foam head. Of course there’s the thick tequila aroma, but taste a little further and you will discover tones of wood, lime and alcohol. She tastes salty, but also sports a good amount of citrus - that’s where her bite comes from. Overall she’ll leave you with a full sensation, and a long and tentative aftertaste.
Like Maria, she has an amber golden appearance. A fluffy broken white foam head matches her aromas of wood, lots of citrus and light whiskey malts.
She tastes just like her personality: salty & spiky, pay attention to her bittersweet whiskey tones. Fans of Blondie will be rewarded with a full mouthfeel and a long and salty aftertaste.
Pitch Black Imperial stout. We’re talking about Charlie so we’re talking Vantablack. Fit for the deepest covert operations. Only recognisable in the dark by his beige foam head. When encountering this smooth talker you will notice a lot of sweetness, oak and vanilla with a touch of bay leaf. He will completely wrap you around his fingers with a middle to long smooth aftertaste and a warm and full mouthfeel.
A dark buccaneer with a sandy foam head. Due to a Jamaican Rum habit he’s a little bit spicy and lightly alcoholic, with hints of burned sugar, but he tastes full, sweet and slightly peppery. This year’s oddball leaves you with a full mouthfeel and a looooooong alcohol aftertaste.
A Dark brown to black universal soldier with a beige foam head [‘91 Army Classic]. Heavy hitter with aromas of -blood-red fruits, cherries, white pepper and the original Brett horse-blanket. Tastes just like his personality: sour, with a lot of depth. Pay attention to the ester flavours with hints of red wine and bourbon. Mix this with some burnt malts and he’ll leave you with a light sparkling but full mouthfeel, that’s s weet and sour.
Six brand new Foreign Legionairs. Basic training is over. Time to kick some ass. These tough S-O-B’s are ready to hit the Field.
