Urthel Vlaemse Bock

Brouwerij De Leyerth
Brewed at De Koningshoeven, Bavaria, Netherlands

Grade: A-
ABV: 7.5%
Style: Abbey Dubbel/Belgian Strong Ale
Serve in: Trappist glass

Winner of the bronze award for “Belgian Style Double” at the 2008 World Beer Cup, Urthel’s Vlaemse Bock is a dark and fruity treat.  It pours deep brown with tons of foam that quickly dissolves into a sticky, creamy surface. Deep layers of caramel, brown sugar, toffee, sweet malts, and dark fruits like prunes, figs and plums, suck you in. The aroma is just so ripe. I love it.

An alcoholic sweetness and a burst of fruits and raisins make this almost a mix between a bock and a belgian strong ale. It has a medium body, is very smooth & creamy, and its high carbonation make it quite effervescent. Total bummer that they stopped brewing this last year.
