Style: Belgian Dark Ale

Abv: 6.2%

Availability: Winter Seasonal

Ever-shorter winter days getting you down? Pick up a growler of Dark at 4:30, a Belgian style dark ale, to get you through the long nights. While not a porter or stout, this traditional Trappist style ale has a strong, malty flavor born of a blend of fourteen types of malt and a color just short of black like the sky on your way home from work. Aging in red wine barrels highlights the caramel and dark, nutty fruit flavors reminiscent of figs or dates and gives this ale a tannic roundness. Try it with a hearty winter stew, or after dinner by itself or with a dark, chocolatey dessert. However you enjoy it, try it soon because stock is dwindling as fast as the daylight hours.
