COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Influenced by a Belgian yeast and good old fashion brewer creativity. Ah yes, lay this one down in your cellars for years to come. Enjoy this one alone for its malt and hop complexity. For entertaining suggestions try a sweet pairing of raisins or sugar coated dates. For a meal start with a soft spreadable herb cheese from fresh cows milk on a nice toasted piece of baguette. Then serve Carbonnade of Beef (Belgian national stew) with candied yams and pan fried green beans tossed with butter and sliced almonds.

Taste is moderately sweet, raisin/prune, caramel, nut, some alcohol. Some alcohol dryness in the finish. Light-medium body, some chalkiness, does a poor job of holding the alcohol.

hopscotch (9152) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Bottle... Clear ruby ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma is of a sweet, Brooklyn, NY chocolate egg cream; Hershey’s syrup with a touch of lactic acid. Chocolaty, Belgian dubbel flavor. No European yeast complexity, but a nice, malty experience nonetheless. Hints of dark raisins and lactic acidity. Full-bodied and lightly oily with medium carbonation. Gently bitter, mineral, dry finish. Bottle provided by growler. Thanks Scott!

So what is this beer? Belgain strong ale? Brown Ale? Get a bottle and let me know what you think because I have no idea. But it is pretty good. World class? No. But good anyway.
