Tuesday Tasting: Two Beers from Bodebrown Brewery in Brazil

Tuesday Tasting is a regular feature of Lyke2Drink that explores some of the best beers, wines and spirits on the market. This week we sample a pair of brews from a Brazilian microbrewery.

Bodebrown Brewery is located in Curitiba, the state capital of Parana in Brazil. The microbrewery features a school, homebrew supply store and a small library to help the local beer community. Bode means "goat" in English and the brewery's name salutes the founders' grandfather who raised goats in the northwest of Brazil

Paulo de Tarso Cavalcanti of Cervejaria e Escola Bodebrown brought some of his beers to the Raleigh Rare & Vintage Beer Tasting last weekend. The event was held at Tyler's Restaurant and Taproom and raised funds for the Pints for Prostates campaign.

Bodebrow Strong Scotch Ale Wee Heavy is 8 percent alcohol by volume. The beer won a gold medal at the Mondial de La Bierre in Montreal in 2011. The beer pours a reddish brown with a off white head. There is a nice caramelized malt base to this beer with just a faint hint of smoke in the background. The mouth feel is not as heavy as some other wee heavy Scotch ales on the market.

Bodebrown Perigosa Imperial Milk Stout comes in a couple of strengths. The beer getting most of the crowd noise at the event in Raleigh was the 21 percent alcohol by volume giant that is aged in Hungarian oak and former Bourbon barrels. The beer is a thick black pour with a minimal head. There is a sweet and roasted nose that opens up as the beer warms slightly. The beer is full flavored with tons of dark fruits, wood and chocolate throughout. The high alcohol content is not a major component of the flavor.
