This morning we get a peek at a new bottle coming from Block 15 Brewing in Corvallis, OR. This is The Prophecies and it is a Belgian-style quadrupel ale brewed with dark candi sugar and Trappist yeast. This beer hits 10.25%-AbV and it will be packaged in 500ml bottles. Stay tuned for release info.
UPDATE 9 Jan 2016 from Block 15:
This week, Block 15 Brewing Company releases The Prophecies, the latest in its Seasonal Bottle Conditioned Series. This Belgian-style Quadrupel Ale will be available bottled and on tap from the New Year through early spring—with distribution to bottle shops and tap houses around Oregon and parts of Washington. Artfully bottle conditioned using Block 15’s custom-fabricated mixing tank, The Prophecies is designed to be enjoyed both freshly bottled and cellared.
Inspired by one of the brewer’s favorite ales from the Ardennes Mountains, The Prophecies was brewed in the shadow of the Cascade Mountain range with Pilsner, Munich and specialty malts, and dark Belgian candi sugar. Gently hopped for balance and fermented with select Trappist yeast, The Prophecies hints of dark fruit, Dutch cocoa, and oak aged rum with a long, warm finish.
