A sneak-peak of our 26th Anniversary Belgian Dark Strong Ale cask conditioned to perfection. A complex array of rich malt, Belgian spice and candied brewing sugar offer-up a glimpse into the future. Cheers to beer. Cheers to 25 Years!

On cask @ Karl Strauss Costa Mesa. Pour is hazy orange in color with a creamy khaki head. Aromas of banana, caramel, brown sugar, and dates. Some mild booze, slight clove spiciness, and some vanilla. Maybe a touch of pear. Flavor is fairly sweet and sugary. Lots of caramel, brown sugar, and dark fruit. Notes of vanilla bean, pear, tons of banana, and alcohol. A slight chalk note on the finish.
