St Mars Dubbel – Saint Mars Of The Desert
This is one a series of three Belgian Abbey type beers, a Single, Dubbel and a Quadruple, inspired by the great Trappist and Abbey beers of Belgium.
These represent a fantasy lineup of our own imaginary abbey range (we’re not monks, obviously, but we did have a Trappist monk as our apprentice brewer in America). They diverge slightly from the static styles but embody their classic character. All were brewed using identical water profiles and a blend of two of our favourite monastic yeast strains, so they will make an interesting and companionable drinking progression.
St Mars Dubbel is a deep amber beer, starting with our signature background of marzipan, this beer is bitter and hoppiest of the range. Savinjski and Whitbread Goldings in the boil, whole-cone Strisselspalt in the coolship.
