At 11.1% ABV, Eighteen is a "Weizendoppelbock." Eighteen's nose is reminiscent of a big dark Belgian-style ale with a touch of smokiness. The color is a hazy deep brown. Eighteen features a complex combination of dark fruit and bready malts with chocolate flavors that are perfectly balanced with spicy phenols and banana esters. This unfiltered and bottle-conditioned ale has a creamy, textured mouthfeel and a warming finish.
