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

Small head that leaves a couple of streaks on the glass. Near black in color but light passes on the edge.

Strong near-black malt aroma. Some black patent grainy aroma but not too the point of "coffee". Think nearly burnt toast. It seems like there's a bit of smokiness to this beer.

Starts with some burnt grain but then a strong kick of licorice shows up. This lasts through the aftertaste. Low carbonation makes this seem creamy but the body is on the thin side.

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.
