Barrel aged training started early at the Kompaan headquarters in 2020. A yet unknown entity was threatening the world as we knew it. While most people remained stoic and sceptic about what was going to happen, our head brewers at Kompaan had a sense that it was going to be a tough couple of months, so they started their barrel-ageing training extra early.
And that was not for nothing, as the world as we had always known it changed completely. While a worldwide pandemic raged across the globe, a lot of people got scared, anxious or went completely mad. But not our fearless brewers. Steadfast we started working on the Kompaan Foreign Legion, which underwent their hardest training ever. Enriched with more flavour, more strength and new techniques they’re ready to cut some edge and add some thunder!
CHERRY BARLEY WINE
BARREL AGED ON LAPHROAIG [WHISKY] AND RUM
“I’ll be back” is the last thing he said when he went AWOL in 2019. He’s proven himself as a fixed value and the toughest one in our Legion, and it’s a reputation he’s determined to uphold. As a long time veteran he’s the only one resilient enough to undergo a double barrel aged training and he’s more than happy to show you what he’s all about...
SMOKED BARLEY WINE BARREL AGED ON BOURBON
This wild boy is a two time Foreign Legion veteran. He’s already got an impressive track record but this smokey salty dog has returned after an intensive bourbon barrel aged training. Not for the faint of hearted, he will leave a searing impression, that’s for sure!
IMPERIAL STOUT BARREL-AGED ON NORTH BRITISH GRAIN.
A little bit psychotic, paranoid and very powerful. A very dangerous combination. He’s entering our post-Corona world with utmost caution and we advise you to do the same when you approach him. You may think you know him, but you can never be sure. He didn’t get his name by being nice and easy...
IMPERIAL STOUT BARREL AGED ON WOODFORD RESERVE
Pitch Black, powerful and determined. That’s what you’re going to hear when you ask around about Mischa. Like a true snake charmer she’ll have you wrapped around her finger in no time. And there will be no mercy for those who are inadverted, as she’ll kick your ass so easily...
ULTRA ROAST IMPERIAL STOUT
How far is too far? You might have heard about being overtrained, and that’s exactly what happened with this one. Black, strong and extremely powerful, this smoking Herculean legionnaire is this year’s last line of defense. You’re dead set on taking him on? We say: let’s start by taking it easy...
CHERRY BARLEY WINE BARREL AGED ON HENNESSY COGNAC
A classy and archetypical French Foreign Legionnaire. They don’t make ‘em like this anymore, that’s for sure. He might come across as a little stiff, but you can alway count on him to warm your heart, and that surely has something to do with a fine Hennessy Barrel Aged training.
