About This Beer
The Belgian beer experts at Taxman are all about how things taste — and if that means trading efficiency for flavor, they’re fine with that! Just look at today’s No Sparge Imperial Golden Belgian Strong Ale.
‘Sparging’ is the practice of sprinkling warm water on top of the grain as the brew kettle is drained in order to push the last of the wort out of the kettle and into the fermenters. Pretty much everyone does it, because it allows for the highest possible yield from the grain.
But it also dilutes the beer, so for this 12% ABV Strong Ale, the Taxman crew skipped it. That means they fermented only the most potent wort, so the beer sings with enormous flavors!
The beer sings with enormous flavors of fresh bread, toffee, and honey, from over 1.5 tons of Belgian Malt in the batch. On the finish, look for a hint of tartness from Taxman’s farmhouse yeast.
It’s all wrapped in a body so rich and smooth, you’re liable to forget all about that big 12% ABV!
