Beer Advent Calendar 2014
From Parallel 49 Brewing out of East Vancouver comes theirn limited release the “Vow of Silence” a Belgian Strong Ale. The beer pours a deep brownish orange with a tan head. The aroma is of dark fruits, Belgian yeast, bananas, brown sugar, vanilla. The flavour is of dark fruit, bananas, Belgian yeast, brown sugar, sweetness, a bit of a hops bitterness and some alcohol to finish it off. The alcohol content of the beer comes in at 9.8% and has an IBU of 25. This is a very different take on the Belgian Strong Ale but is very tasty none the less. Great Job!
Commercial Description: A Belgian-style dark strong ale that showcases notes of stone fruits and raisins. Dark amber in colour with a higher carbonation to keep the beer from feeling to heavy.
