Dead Man's Hand is inspired by the Russian Imperial Stout. It is a jet black beer with roasted malt and a high alcohol content of 10%. The beer is aged in oak barrels.
One could say that the beer is a further driven Klevere Tien. Everything is more extreme: the roasted flavors, coffee and mocha are still intensely present. The alcohol was not even aware inflated because this is already happening in wooden barrels. Often you drink such a beer 11 to 12%, but there is almost no foam anymore.
Now more than ten years ago, a group of friends started a beer tasting club. Every two weeks they came together at one of their homes to drink a good Belgian beer and to discuss beer, women and football. During the years the interest in beer grew. This resulted in following brewing courses in 2007.
From that year on, they started “Hobbybrouwerij Het Nest (Home Brewery the Cradle)”. Their first success was a third place at the Open Dutch Championship for home brewers in the “triple” class.
