Belgian Double Stout reaches a hearty 11% ABV to qualify as a true slow sipper. A big, roasty malt bill starts this beer as one would an oversized American stout. Specialty malts like Munich, Chocolate Wheat, and Roasted Barley combine to create a profile rich in bready malts, coffee roast and dark chocolate. The twist comes when a unique yeast strain is introduced that provides big fruit esters (think plum, dates, raisins) of Belgian ales, but without the spicy phenols (think cloves, ginger, nutmeg) of the traditional Belgian strains. The result is a double stout that toes the line between American and Belgian dark beer traditions.
