LOST ABBEY 10 COMMANDMENTS

BELGIAN STRONG DARK ALE | 9.00%ABV

Pairing: Chocolate Truffle Layer Cake, Bittersweet Chocolate Tartlets

Other pairing ideas: Hearty meat dishes and strong cheeses.

A fantastic relationship exists between a Belgian Strong Dark Ale and chocolate that not many know. Abundant malt flavors in the beer link so beautifully with the bittersweet flavors of good, dark chocolate. Strong Dark Ales possess other wonderful flavor notes imparted by the yeast. These spicy yeast flavors blend well with so many foods, while also strongly complementing the decadent chocolate dish.  The contrast between  the beers spicy, bitter flavors and the sweetness of the desert makes this quite a notable pairing.
