|Product Name||Achel Brune|
|Brewery||Abdij Achelse Kluis|
|Tasting Notes||Achel 8 is a medium bodied and well rounded, caramel-hoppy, Dark Trappist. Best served in a branded chalice glass with or without the sediment. Good with stews and chocolate pudding.|
The Saint Benedictus Abbey of Achel is the first monastery to take up brewing in Belgium since 1931, and is one of only seven Trappist breweries now operating. This dark amber, flavourful Rich ale, lots of dried fruit and Christmas cake aroma, soft and smooth on the tongue and a rich finish with hints of dark caramel beer is surprisingly refreshing at 8% alcohol by volume. It is lightly filtered, but still wholesomely hazy with yeast remaining in the bottle.
