Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The "Ten of Clubs" is a dark ale with a hint of anise and loads of character. Some may call it "Abbey-style," but we just think of it as great beer.

Aged in oak barrels and brewed from an original recipe by Het Nest - a group of friends making excellent craftbeer to promote the Flemish town of Turnhout Belgium - the world wide center of the playing card.

Dark ruby body with a frothy head.

Licorice and alcohol nose, slight coffee.

Flavor is horrible. Lots of alcohol, anise, followed by pure NyQuil. That green stuff.

Feel...hot, boozy, semi dry.

Overall one of the most awful beers I've ever tasted. I don't like taking medicine unless I have to. Drain pour, here.

750 ml bottle from Rare Beer club. Pours brown with foamy, beige head. Aroma is of funky yeast, sherry, chocolate and plums. Body is full and crisp.. Yeast, dark fruit, hops, spices, brown sugar and nutty malt fill the mouth. Finish is long and bitter. Complex and tasty brew.
