Forward

Belgian Strong Ale

winter spice
cognac
dried fruit

The fourth beer in our series of Belgians, this one is the boldest of them all with the rich, malty flavor of raisins and molasses. 10.8%

Story Behind the Name
Forward has the word four in it, and this beer is a Belgian Quadruppel. We also like the optimistic movement forward.
Occasion
Malty beer lover, night time, cozy
Official Style
Belgian Quadruppel
Why We Don't Call It That
Most people do not know the difference between the Dubbel, Trippel and the Quadruppel. The foreign words can be intimidating to pronounce and can make guests feel stupid to order.
If you like...
Dried fruit, malty, rich beers, a subtle sweetness, fall spices, maple syrup, boozy, brandy/sherry
