Belgian Style Dubbel
O Glorious Saint Monty, brimming with compassion to heal the desires of those who seek thou art dark and strong Belgian ales, brewed and fermented under the monkish ways. I cast myself at the stem of your chalice seeking refuge from bland libation. Your graceful embrace of tart Montmorency cherries amongst the carefully crafted complexity of malt, hops, and yeast tickles my soul and inspires further bier exploration. Please grant me the courage to imbibe your offerings with humility, and the zeal to crusade for Belgian bier options wherever I may travel.
Saint Monty, a melody of dark fruit - plum, fig, blackberry and dried cherry character - join in unison to harmonize with the more subtle spice notes provided by the Belgian yeast strain. The beer finishes dry, leaving a lingering cherry tartness. Fermented with Montmorency tart cherries from the heart of Michigan’s cherry country in our open fermenter, the brewing monks at Scorched Earth pay homage to Belgian Trappist brewers with their Belgian Dubbel, Saint Monty.
