Description

Among the most complex beers in the world are the strong, dark Belgian Quads. Our Feast of Thomas is brewed well before Christmas and allowed a generous period in which to mellow and mature. The well-rounded flavor that results emphasizes nuttiness, dark, dried fruits, and a vinous character. The recipe may be rudimentary, but the ingredients are first class. Yet Tomasmesse is a highly complex beer, not least as the fermentation is allowed to reach 28 °C, and the product is cellared for an extended maturation phase. Tomasmesse is a joy by itself, with rich meat dishes, and with desserts such as cake or cloudberry cream.
