Normally, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse would raise dread in me but if it comes from Double Mountain Brewery in Hood River it means four great beers.
Double Mountain Red War
“Strong Belgian-style Red Ale. A big yet very approachable beer. Lots of fruity complexity (banana, cherry, apricot), without a lot of the smoky phenols and higher alcohol notes of many Belgian ale strains. The fermentation finished dry, but with residual sweetness from a blend of light and dark crystal malts.”
Double Mountain White Rider of Conquest
“Strong Belgian-style Blonde Ale – A big, golden-hued flavor bomb with heady alcohol and silky mouthfeel. Abundantly estery yeast notes underpinned by enticing hoppiness.”
Double Mountain Black Famine
“Belgian-style Quad. The third in the Four “Horsemen of the Apocalypse series, Famine brings you closer to the dark side. Black and chocolate malts were used sparingly so as to not get in the way of the wonderful dark fruit esters characteristic to the Ardennes yeast strain. The nose gives you toffee, dark fruit, and raisin, while a creamy vanilla rounds out the middle. Fruit and ripe banana flavors hang on the tongue, finishing bright.”
Double Mountain Pale Death
No description from the website but I would love to have a sampler tray of this group.
