From Funkwerks in Fort Collins Colorado comes their “Ten Quadruple Ale”. The beer pours a chestnut brown with a small tan head. The aroma consists of brown sugar, dark fruits but not much else to speak of. The flavour is of brown sugar, treacle, nuts, dark fruits, strawberries and alcohol. The alcohol content comes in at 10%. While it may not hold up to the best of the style from Belgium this is a really tasty beer and I will be purchasing more now that it is available in Canada.
Commercial Description: Inspired by the Dark Strong beers of Belgium, this full-bodied Quadruple Belgian-style ale pours with a deep burgundy hue and a frothy tan head. The malt-forward aromas of toffee and chocolate compliment the dark fruity aromas of raisins and plums. The aromatic qualities follow through in the flavor and combine with refreshing effervescent carbonation. A dry and balanced finish makes this strong but quaffable beer the perfect way to end a long day! Notes of toffee, chocolate, raisins and plums.
