Having rolled the boulder up the proverbial hill for more times than I care to talk about, the next beer launch from the BrewFarm's LaBrewatory is on its way.
In our part of the Upper Midwest there’s nothing like a brisk north wind to get your attention. So when we stumbled upon the name of this wicked Spanish breeze, we decided to brew up something that would likewise stop folks in their tracks.
We brew for flavor and for the overall “beer experience,” and our results are often curious and always distinctive. This unique new ale is no exception. Like its name, it is dark, mysterious, and difficult to translate into a familiar category. The deep hue and creamy body might suggest one style, but the floral aroma and Trappist-inspired flavors say another.
It is dark, yet not heavy; complex, yet balanced; strong, yet very smooth ... and unusually satisfying.
