Brasserie Dubuisson Bush Ambree
Brasserie Dubuisson Bush Ambree, dubbed The Strongest Belgian Beer. I found that to be a bit tacky of a slogan, but I won’t judge the beer based on that. The beer pours an amber color with a frothy off-white colored head. The aroma consists of raisin, caramel, biscuit, alcohol, and yeast. The taste is sweet and smooth with caramel, yeast, raisin, and fig up front. Some alcohol burn warms the back of the throat. The finish has a nice earthiness to it, and caramel and toffee linger on the tongue. The alcohol content is 12.0% ABV. I was quite impressed with the flavors of this beer, and it completely stood up to the alcohol content. It had a nice warming burn, but is not overwhelming.
