COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Growler fill shared by Brandon. Hazy brown pour. Taste is dark sweet sugars and dominant Belgian yeast. Just ok.

BMan1113VR (7830) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 1, 2013
On tap at GABF 2012. Fun to taste the homebrew as well during their Pro-Am Comp. Pours with a murky deep amber hued body and an off-white head. Aromas are yeasty and nutty, plum, fruity, medium malty. Flavors are boozy, spicy and a bit phenolic. Leathery and fruity. Dry and very warming.

Clear dark amber color with ivory sheen. Mild nutty brown malt, spicy belgian yeast aromas. Medium body with average carbonation. Lightly sweet caramel, dark fruit flavors with spicy yeast, roasted nuts---not bad.

SHIG (3553) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Draft: Poured a brown with copper edge tones, the head was thin and bubbly. Aroma was dark fruits and sweet malts. Taste was a blend of toffee, dark fruits and malts. Left the palate very dry and longing for more.
