Dubbel (Merlau) Merlot (10oz)

Brewery Ommegang

Belgian Dark Ale | 9.7% ABV


Dubbel Merlau begins with a rich abbey-style dubbel, which is blended with Merlot grape juice prior to fermentation. A portion of the blend is then aged in red wine barrels, adding additional layers of complexity. Dubbel Merlau pours a deep ruby with sparkling clarity and a lively tan head. The aroma opens with caramel and black cherries, fortified by undertones of oak and tannic acidity. On the palate, a quick burst of malty goodness leads to assertive fruit flavors of blackberry, cherry and raspberry. The finish is long and luscious, leaving complex layers of drying tannins and malt sweetness.
