COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hell of the North is our first commercially released Belgian Strong Dark Ale.
Brewed using a blend of Trappist ale yeasts it is a beast of a beer... In a very elegant way. Raisiny and warm from the high ABV it is a perfect winter warmer. Sweet mouth filling malt up front with a remarkably dry finish for a beer of this size.

Bottle from Wine Emporium 230914. Super big foam head takes forever to settle. Boozy is an understatement. Definitely a beer to sip.

Not the greatest beer from Murrayís, just too much booze! Good flavours initially though.

On tap @ the alehouse project. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a smallish, dissipating head that left a little lacing. Lots of bold flavours in this one. Typical Quad flavours of plums, raisins, dates and then a little apricot. Finishes with drying hops that add another dimension to the beer. Really nice.

Tap at the Park Hotel. Lovely clear brown with a beige head. Far too cold even though I avoided the frosty glass. Much more enjoyable after it sat for 20 minutes. Aroma of light dough, stewed and dried fruit - prunes, raisins - brown sugar, mace. Full bodied but not at all syrupy. Really quite hot and very boozy. Sweet, faintly rummy. Explosive fruity flavours. Dries out a fair bit at the end. Punchy spices - aniseed, pepper, nutmeg. Lots going for it but the alcohol is way too prominent for me. I suppose this was always going to be a bumpy ride.
