Baird Dubbel


Formerly brewed at Baird Brewing Co.
Numazu, Shizuoka, Japan
Style: Abbey Dubbel | Ratings: 4 | Autumn Seasonal | Alcohol: 7.7%
Experimenting with various yeast strains, particularly Belgian ones, is one of the joys in the work of a small-scale craft brewer. In this Baird interpretation of a Belgian-style Dubbel we ferment with a yeast thought to be derived from the wonderful Trappist brewery Rochefort. Five malted grains and two types of sugar - Japanese rock sugar and black sugar - provide richness and depth of flavor without excessive heaviness or fullness. The hopping is light at only 22 IBUs and no aroma additions are made. One-year of maturation in the package contributes a round, almost vinous character. This monkish brew is meant for the contemplative drinker and is best enjoyed on a brisk autumn afternoon or evening.
