Our 2012 release in the Pro Am series represents our biggest Pro-Am beer to date. We decided to brew this beer with 100% imported Belgian malts and sugars which help give it a truly authentic character. This strong Belgian ale boasts a rich maltiness from its four specialty malts. The sweet malt is complemented and refined by the addition of Dark Belgian Candi syrup. The aroma is a pleasing mixture of the malt and spicy phenolics and esters from the Belgian Yeast. Warming alcohol notes in the finish help make this a beer to remember. Additional Information: Our 2012 Homebrew Competition winner was Jake MacDonald of Minnesota. Jake brought this wonderful beer literally “Cross Country” to enter it into our competition. Our panel of judges were so impressed with the rich complexity of malt and sweetness balanced with the Belgian yeast aromatics that they unanimously selected it as the winner. We were also lucky enough to have Jake and his brother travel to California again to help us brew the full-scale batch.
