TORONTO, ON – Mill Street Brewery has announced details of the latest release in its series of limited edition strong ales packaged in 750 ml swing-top bottles.
Lune De Sang Belgian Noir is a 9% abv strong ale described as follows:
Brewed during a “Blood Moon” lunar eclipse at our Ottawa brewpub, this little devil pours a deep mahogany red/black colour and is filtered to show it off. It has a fairly sweet palate and is made with five types of malt including dark caramel and chocolate malts, hopped very lowly in the kettle resulting in a relatively low IBU but very generously hopped in the whirlpool and dry-hopped in the aging tank with US-grown El Dorado hops to give it a very fruity aroma and finish. Finally this beer is aged in contact with toasted French oak to give it a smooth, rich vanilla tone. This is a very substantial, but surprisingly elegant beer.
