St. Benedict Belgian Dark Strong Ale (for Advanced Homebrewers)
Inspired by the Trappist and abbey beers I drank during a trip to Brussels last fall, I first brewed this Belgian Strong Dark Ale in January. I rebrewed a 15-gallon batch of it earlier this month with a couple of fellow members of the New York City Homebrewers Guild to serve at the club's 25th anniversary celebration next year as well as the National Homebrewers Conference.
