The Texas version of Fantôme Del Rey is a bière de coupage where old, barrel-aged beer is blended with young beer. The older component of the blend was brewed at Jester King in August of 2014 with malted barley, dark candi syrup, ground coriander, and black peppercorns. It was initially fermented in stainless steel with truffle honey, and then racked to oak for extended maturation. We brewed the younger version in November of 2015, and blended the old with the young. The blend was then 100% naturally refermented in bottles, kegs, and casks. At the time of packaging, Fantôme Del Rey was 8.8% alcohol by volume, 1.002 specific gravity, 19 IBU, and 3.6 pH.
