BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Malevolently dark in color, yet indulgently complex in character. This Belgian strong ale pours copper-brown with a delicate nose of spicy pepper, toasted malt, fig, raisons, and light earth. Peppery farmhouse yeast qualities continue on the palate with nuanced complementary flavors of semi-sweet caramel and dark fruit. The finish is deceptively smooth and moderately dry with a pleasantly warming hint of alcohol.

MALT: Pilsner, Abbey, Carafa III

HOPS: US Goldings

Bottle share at Steve’s. A bit too much licorice/anise. Flavor distracts, medicinal cough drops . A bit too much on the flavor spectrum, was expecting better after hearing so much about this brewery.

A:
Pours a rusty brown that might as well be black in the glass with a finger or so of fluffy/soda-y head that quickly drops to an even coat. Meh retention; concentric rings/arcs of lacing. (3.75)

S:
Woody dark fruits. Cherries, sawdust, hard water, maple wood, brown sugar, rum. (3.75)

T:
Rich, layered yeasty sweetness. Dark bread, candi sugar, syrup, blackberries. (3.75)

M:
Rough velvet with medium carbonation, full body and lingering boozy finish. (4)

O:
Pretty good BSDA fromt Trillium.
Simple, straightforward, sweet, filling. Looks alright and the rest of the beer follows suit. Simple, tasty, very sweet, little boozy. Might have again, but I like their hoppy stuff better and feel like there are better examples of this style to be had. Regardless, a long ways from bad. (4)

Pours a deep maroon with a light head. Aroma of dark (sinister) fruit - plums, raisins, cherries and figs. The slight sweetness of the malt is accentuated by the brown sugar and light, hoppy spice. Nice, fruit and malt profile without a hint of ABV.
