Lune De Sang Noir by Mill Street Brewery in Ontario, Canada

About Lune De Sang Noir by Mill Street Brewery

Belgian style dark ale, our Lune de Sang Noir is similar in style to abbey dubbels but with a higher hopping rate and a slightly darker colour. Brewed during a “Blood Moon” lunar eclipse at our Ottawa brewpub, this little devil is 9% abv and 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. Belgian candy sugar is added to intensify the sweetness and deep red colour of this beer. It is 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 Eldorado 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.
