About The Beer
Brewery: Pirate Life Brewing
Style: Belgian Strong Ale
Format: 500ml Can
No. 6 in our "Artist Series" features an epic one-off piece by UK based artist Mr. Christa. And on the inside of the tin? A Belgian Dark Ale inspired by one of Adelaide's finest homebrewers, Luke Beard.
It's brewed with Pale, Crystal and Biscuit Malts (plus a lick of chocolate rye) and hopped with Fuggles and Perle. Dark Candi Sugar and Molasses lend depth in the kettle, while Belgian Ale Yeast serves up an array of archetypal esters. Y'all know the ones...
It pours dark caramel brown, with a creamy head of foam. Expect aromas of clove, prune, dried fig and treacle. To drink, it's viscous and rich, with notes of sweet molasses, all-spice, and brandied baked pear. Ginger snaps go long on the finish.
