I attended my fifth Tria Cafe beer-tasting tonight. This event featured more Belgian-style beers, primarily beers produced by New York’s Brewery Ommegang and its Belgian parent, Duvel Moortgat. Of tonight’s six beers, I particularly liked the Ommegang Abbey Ale Dubbel, which offered anise flavors and a complex spiciness, and a Rodenbach Grand Cru. The latter veered dangerously close to being vinegary, yet I loved it.
Actually, one of my favorite flavors tonight came in a small bit of chocolate, a piece of Neuhaus Madagascar vanilla bourbon milk chocolate.
Sadly, the man I flirted with in early December was nowhere to be seen at this beer-tasting. Sigh.
