Sympathy for the Devil
Brewer: Sun King Brewing
Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale
This 10-percent dark Belgian ale recently took a silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival, and it’s easy to see how it stood out in a sea of 100-plus entries for the Wood- and Barrel-Aged Strong Beer category. The bourbon-barrel beer features rich spice, banana, and dark fruit flavors that play off the whiskey and oak notes. And while it’s big on flavor, the Belgian ale is a little lighter bodied and easier to drink than the thicker barrel-aged stouts and barleywines it’s competing against.
