Strong Dark Abbey-style Ale - Belgium / Seasonal
$9 / 24 oz.
8.5 per cent ABV
handful of Belgian Trappist monasteries have preserved
a medieval approach of brewing into the modern
day, and have inspired brewers of "Abbey-Style"
ales in Belgium and
beyond. Corsendonk is a classic
example, and their seasonal Christmas Ale is a divine
inspiration, one of the finest winter ales of all
time. Rich and dark-hued, this well-crafted
beer is potent, but still eminently drinkable on
a chilly mid-winter night. As it pours, heady
aromas of dessert spices emerge with graceful notes
of floral hops, star anise and coriander. Beers
like this are heaven-sent, or as Benjamin Franklin
put it, "... proof that God loves us and wants
us to be happy."
