One might think we are obsessed with Belgian action stars, not so, unless that action star happens to be a Belgian monk brewer. Dubbel Impact is based on the traditional dark ale made in Belgian Abbeys since time immemorial (ok, maybe for the last 150 years, but that is still a long time). The result is a rich complex beer that packs a punch even JCVD would be jealous of!
Deep raisin and cocoa powder flavors give way to plum and fig notes, with just a touch of cumquat rind. We also carmelized some sugar in the boil kettle to add a pleasing horehound candy note (ask your grandparents if you don’t know what that is). The beer finishes dry and complex, but will not likely inspire a vow of silence, rather one of conversation.
