PX is an Imperial Stout aged in Pedro Ximénez wine barrels for 275 days. Brewed with Extra Pale, Chocolate, and Crystalized malts that combine with the profile of the barrel used, resulting in a dense, silky, and flavorful beer that invites to be enjoyed slowly during a meal with aged and blue cheeses or intensely flavored desserts.
Fermented with neutral yeast to give prominence to the malts, the beer shows a marked Pedro Ximénez character along with aromas of dried fruit compote such as plums, figs, or dates, in addition to licorice and caramel.
PX is the seventh creation of the Barrel Works series by Basqueland, a series of unique beers aged in wooden barrels with different previous uses that we created in 2020 to enhance the complexity of our creations and explore new paths in beer making.”
The label was designed in collaboration with Brooklyn-based, Pamplona-born artist, Carlos Irijalba and it belongs to his Gowanus series. In addition to being a world-renowned artist of several mediums, Carlos loves what we love: beer, people, wine, food, and experiences. We are delighted he shared this image with us.
“This creation of striking images of what takes place when the “man-made” meets nature. They are two systems that co-exist but never coalesce”, says Mr. Irijalba.
