(ABV 8%) from
is brewed with water, yeast, barley malt, roasted spelt malt and three varieties of hops: Belgian Golding, Mosaic and Hallertau Hersbrucker.
The challenge for the brewer is to find the correct balance between the rounded mildness and bitterness provided by the malt, the bitter hop aromas – with fresh hop cones added for dry hopping late in the process – and the tangy, slightly sour taste coming from the malted spelt.
The beer shows up dark mahogany brown in the glass below a frothy, cream-colored head.
The initial impression is dominated by aromas of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, wine, and dark fruit. Bitter chocolate, coffee, wood smoke, and vinous notes enliven the taste palette.
Overall a balanced and complex beer with well-hidden alcohol, a drier taste than a typical British stout, and a lower hop quotient compared to American examples.
This malty beer makes a perfect pairing with pork chops steeped in the same beer, or with marinated, honey-glazed spare ribs from the grill. It is also recommended with game, with blue-veined cheeses of the Roquefort type and with desserts containing chocolate.
(formerly Brasserie de Bastogne) is part of the new wave of Belgian microbreweries. For a dozen years or so, Philippe Minne, an engineer by trade, was a hobby brewer, learning all the technical aspects of brewing – a great start for a fledgling professional brewer.
In search of a location to set up their own brewery, Philippe and his wife Catherine met organic farmer Philippe Meurisse; in 2008 the three established a brewery at a farm near the town of Bastogne, for which the brewery is named.
A sustainable way of doing business and a focus on regional products are paramount for this brewery. At the heart of Brasserie de Bastogne's philosophy is the aim to produce balanced, artisanal beers with character and an uncompromisingly pure taste.
