On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a nose of belgian yeast, sugar/molasses, booze. Flavor is boozy, with sugar, Belgian yeast, sweet fruit. Nice medium to full mouthfeel. Well done.

To celebrate my brand new super generic stainless steel growler purchase (the only way to own a single growler in California) I chose Thorn St. Brewery’s Abbey Roof. Thorn St. is the perfect distance away for me to feel satisfied that my growler fulfilled it’s role as the beer basket for a life lived locally. Thorn St.’s emphasis seems to be on lighter styles, but this is a cold, dreary and miserable weekend, and deserves something heavier with a little bit more bite. I wasn’t feeling the coffee stout, but a beer brewed with Belgian yeasts. It’s a lovely deep brown beer, with when not veiled by condensation on the glass (I’m blanking the heavy air humidity) it hints at a sweet flavor inside. Brown sugar layered on top of more brown sugar defines the smell, with some light molasses mixed in - sweet and dark, it practically frosts the inside of the nose with dark sweetness. At 10%% the taste has some booze, especially on the aftertaste, but the rest of the flavor is soft and subtle - more brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, all-spice and some caramelized creme brûlée topping. This Belgian Strong is unique in the way that it presents itself, strongly favoring the dark sugars found in both nose and flavor.
