Notes/Commercial Description:
Brother Blue Beardo is a Strong Dark Belgian Style Ale brewed with Demerara sugar, dark Belgian candi syrup and 220 pounds of Klug Farm Blueberries in each 7 barrel batch. The result is a beautiful blend of classic Trappist Ale notes of spicy yeast, dark fruits and dark sugar/molasses with the lightly acidic and perfectly fruity taste of blueberries.

Bottle # 227/228

A - Pours a dark cola with may'be a slight plum color to it. Has a thin light khaki head with little to no lacing/retention.

S - Good amount of Belgian yeast and a huge smack of sugary esters. I'm not getting a lot of blueberries, but on the other hand a lot of dark fruits.

T - Candied sugars of the Belgian variety, plums, figs and yeast. Again, not a lot of blueberry going on.

M - Medium bodied and light carbonation. Real thin, but smooth also.

O - Kind of a gimmick average beer. The Belgian qualities are so strong that the blueberries really can't shine through.
