COMING HOME 2014 HOLIDAY ALE

Our intent for our annual Holiday Ale series is to release a special beer each November to be enjoyed with special friends on special occasions. This Belgian-Style Quadrupel ale is full-bodied and robust, boldly showcasing flavors of sweet dried fruits delivered on a smooth, velvety palate.  Specialty malts and roasted barley give this beer a sweet malty aroma that complements its complex fruitiness. Brewed in the Belgian tradition with dark and clear candi sugars and a Trappist ale yeast, Coming Home 2014 is rich and flavorful.

The use of traditional Belgian candi sugars allows the alcohol content to be boosted without imparting too many other flavors or a heavy mouthfeel. At 10% alcohol by volume, this beer is warming and complex. Serving the beer at a slightly warmer temperature will help release even more complex aromas and flavors. This Belgian-Style Quadrupel has a dense, pillowy head and a gorgeous dark ruby color, thanks to the dark sugars and special malts.

The Belgian-Style Quadrupel is the biggest and darkest of traditional Belgian-Style ales. Historically brewed by Belgian monasteries as the highest strength beer, the Belgian-Style Quadrupel usually consists of the first runnings from a mash. This style of beer typically sports an ABV of 9% or higher. The high alcohol content, dark malts, and Belgian yeast make this beer a great addition to your cellar and will develop for years to come. The aromas are sweet and rummy, reminding us of delectable treats. Subtle hop flavor gives enough bitterness to balance the brown sugar and caramel flavors, mingling with figs, raisins, and dates. A robust beer on its own, this deceptively drinkable ale complements gamey meats, fruitcake, and pumpkin pie.

 

Coming Home 2014 will be available November 1, 2014 in bottle-conditioned 750mL cases and keg-conditioned 1/6 bbl & 1/2 bbl kegs.
