BEER INFO

Bloomington Brewing Company

Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.30%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Prior to working at BBC, assistant brewer Nick Banks was an avid home brewer. This recipe is a scaled up version of a Belgian Strong that Nick would often brew at home.

Brewed with fresh ground coriander, sweet and bitter orange peel, amber candy sugar, 4 malts, 5 hops and a traditional Belgian yeast, this is an elaborate beer. The name comes from the fact that it takes a few drinks (seven sips for us) to fully realize the complexity of this beer.
