About The Prophecies:
Inspired by one of our favorite beers brewed in the Ardennes Mountains, this strong ale was brewed in the shadow of the Cascade mountain range with European specialty malts and dark Belgian candi sugar—a rich blend that hints at dark fruit and Dutch cocoa with a balanced, warming finish. Grains: 2-row, Pilsner, Munich Light, Munich Dark, Pale Wheat Malt, Monastique, Chocolate, Special B Adjunct: Belgian Dark Candi Sugar Yeast: Trappist High Gravity ABV: 10.25% FG: 1.012
Bottle conditioned in the Belgian tradition, The Prophecies is designed to be enjoyed both freshly bottled and cellared.
