Brewed for The Monastery Of St. Francis & Gorton Trust, this is a fine take on the Trappist Dubbel style.
It pours a rich amber with a little ring of froth for a head and smells of chocolate coated raisins.
There’s a big round chewy malt stuffed full of praline and toffee brittle, Crunchie bar honeycomb and wafers that are warmed through by a strong whisky heat.
The hops bring some much needed brightness, with lemon zest and haze, leaves, bracken, grapefruit and orange marmalade, adding a fruitiness to the smooth boozy finish.
