Avery’s The Beast returns on August 1st. The best is a Belgian strong dark ale, that typically clocks in around 16%. The Beast is a part of the brewery’s “Demons of Ale” series, and is brewed with dates, molasses, dark candi sugar, honey, raisins and turbinado sugar.
The Beast is a seducer — accomodating, complicated, powerful, dark and created to last the ages. With a deep burgundy color and aromas of honey, nutmeg, mandarin orange and pineapple, this massive and challenging brew has flavors akin to a beautiful Carribean rum. Dates, plums, raisins and molasses are dominant in a rich vinous texture. Cellarable for 10+ years.
Style: Belgian Strong Dark (w/ Dates, Molasses, Dark Belgian Candi Sugar, Colorado Honey, Raisins, Turbinado Sugar)
