New Glarus 20th Anniversary Strong Ale

This is a Belgian-style strong ale brewed by New Glarus Brewing of New Glarus, Wisconsin to commemorate the 20th anniversary of their brewery (and the 30 year anniversary of the couple that owns and runs the brewery, Deb and Dan Carey). They have been brewing since 1993. They are distributed only in Wisconsin.

The beer pours a mahogany or dark chestnut with a ruby tint. There is an inch of thick and creamy off-white to very light brown foam. The aroma is malty, caramel, light molasses, herbal. The taste follows the aromas, malty, semi-sweet, caramel, a bit of dark fruits, with an herbal note on the finish. It is medium to full-bodied, with a moderate bitterness on the finish. This holds and fits together nicely for an overall nice effect.
