|I've known Madeleine for seven years, and never knew she had such|
flair with chalk.
Clear, reddish brown coloring, large creamy-tan head, lasting long and leaving some lace.
Some sweetness in the nose, minor fruity esters, low bitterness. Mostly malty. Probably Belgian Special B in this one, and I'd guess that Belgian yeast is being used. I really should have asked Jason while I was there, but I also enjoy the guessing game.
In the mouth: starts slightly sweet, thoroughly malty, ending dry and crisp. Just enough bitter for balance. Just enough sweet for flavor. Nicely rounded, and quite tasty. Some chocolate malt notes, and a bit caramel malt flavor, too. I like this one. When you're desires something dark, but you don't want to go with the high alcohol offerings like Dark Abbey dubbel, or Grande Zombi stout, this makes an excellent session ale, while hanging out in the taproom, relaxing with the music.
|Cheers, Joe, and thanks for the beer!|
I found this one to be quite satisfactory, and will enjoy drinking at least half of the growler tonight.
