Mammoth Rock Belgian Dubbel
ABV: 7.8% IBU: 20
This is a malty, dark Trappist* ale with fruity and spicy yeast character. These complement the “mammoth” amount of caramel and dark fruit flavors (including plums and raisins) from the malt. Expect a chewy, rich malt base with deep bready and toasty flavors. The finish is dry and lightly warming.
*Trappist beer is brewed exclusively at one of eleven monasteries in Europe and the US and carry the official International Trappist Association seal.
History: Just east of the mile-high peak at Smuggler’s Pass (5280 ft.) in El Paso’s Franklin Mountains is a hiking trail to Mammoth Rock. It’s a short–but strenuous–hike just off Transmountain Road through Upper Fusselman Canyon. Hikers are rewarded with spectacular views of the mountains and the city below!
Food Pairings: This beer works well with all kinds of pork: sausage, tenderloin, chops.
