Farm Table: Belgian-style Black AleBelgian-style black ale • 5.6% • Farm Table
Part of Beau’s series of true-to-style beers, this Belgian-style black ale is a showcase of roasted chocolate and black malts, to which monastery ale yeast adds a characteristically Belgian spiced finish. Hidden deep within the dragon’s lair, this ale is worth the challenge of contending against its keeper.
History & Style
Belgium has an unparalleled brewing heritage, and Belgian-style beer is now brewed the world over by those who enjoy it. Interpretations have been constantly tweaked and reinvented to accommodate contemporary tastes. Rooted in Belgian influence, this modern classic intermingles favourite flavours of fruit, chocolate, coffee and spice.
Belgian-style black ale pours nearly opaque black with a tan foam. The aroma offers notes of dark chocolate, espresso and a touch of cinnamon and star anise from the use of Belgian yeast. The flavour consists of dark malt, dried fruit and peppery spice. The finish is dry and imparts lingering spice.
