Eleven By Volume
Brewery Ommegang

The official beer of BCTC 2011. Described as a "[d]ark, strong Belgian-style abbey ale/porter hybrid."

A: The strong ale is dark, looking like Chocolate Indulgence or, perhaps, even darker. A tan head comes along, further supporting the stout look.

S: Spicy sweet, the darkness of the ale adds brief heft before disappearing back into the morass. The spices include sweet fruits like apples and plums paired with peppery notes.

T: Deceptive. The strength of the ale, which is significant, is hidden behind a darkly sweet, fruity base. Apples, pears and other fleshy fruits crowd out most of the darker porter-like chocolate flavors. That sweetness, as expected, obscures the booziness of the ale, never allowing it to come through. The dark sweetness pushes the beer into new ground for Ommegang, a pure sweet dark beer. A good one, but limit yourself to one.

M: The mouthfeel is sugary sweet, rich with fruits. The porter body underneath barely stands a chance, only coming through sporadically.
