A dubbel with a local twist, using Japanese "kuromitsu" black sugar to add to the layers of flavour
Dubbel is a wide ranging yet quite simple style, usually getting its color and rich fruit aromas from dark sugars instead of malt. Using this as a springboard, we brought back the kuromitsu sugar first used in the Quad release last year. We looked to Caramunich malt for a bit more depth of flavor and color, giving the beer ruby highlights.
While still far from the perfect Dubbels of Belgium, we are more than satisfied with the result. The dry yet flavorful finish lends to drinkability despite the relatively high ABV. Our house yeast accentuates the dry fruit character of the malt, and the kuromitsu sugar leaves a lingering depth of aroma that hints at sweetness. And with refermentation in the can we expect this release to get even better with time.
