BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company

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.

Flavor is pretty good; rummy raisin and molasses are most prominent...expected a bit more candied sugar for some reason. Aroma is muted because there's almost no head on the beer, and that speaks to my complaint with just about all domestic made belgian styles (mostly dubbels, tripels, quads), that they never have that great, fluffy mouthfeel that the real stuff from Belgium has. So, although the flavor is decent, overall it's a miss and not worth the $. I'm picky with my Belgian styles though.

Simple Belgian Strong Dark, pleasant enough with the dark sweet fruit flavors, but I think it could have benefited from a heftier mouthfeel.
