St. Mars of the Desert – Special 4 – 4.8%
Belgian style single. Brown “refectory beer” with deep marzipan and hints of roasted malt.
This is a series of three Belgian Abbey type beers, a “Single”, “Dubbel" and a “Quadruple”. They are inspired by the great Trappist and Abbey beers of Belgium. These three represent a fantasy lineup of our own imaginary abbey range (we’re not monks, obviously, but we did have a Trappist monk as our apprentice brewer in America). They diverge slightly from the static styles but embody classic character. All three beers were made using identical water profiles and a blend of two of our favourite monastic yeast strains, so they will make an interesting and companionable drinking progression.
