If there’s one thing the Belgians know how to do, its’ brewing beers that are dark as night, strong enough to sedate a horse and keep you coming back for sip after delightful sip. Brasserie Lefebvre's Barbãr Bok is no exception to this rule. Borrowing the concept of the Bock, a strong dark lager originally brewed by monks needing a reliable fuel to go about their daily ministrations, from the Germans Brasserie Lefebvre have made the style their own with the addition of honey which adds an alluring sweetness to what is an already heady brew. As you might expect from any Belgian beer, the aroma is dominated a strong, fruity yeastiness found side by side a honey tinged sweetness. To taste is a delightful melange of sweet honey, roasty malts and a dash of smokiness to round off this fantastic beer. Named for the Barbar pirates of old, you can almost imagine a warrior sipping from the cup of victory while surveying new lands conquered and enemies defeated. Brewed with the depths of winter in mind, this beer will put you in the mind of a warm fire on a dark and stormy night and there’d be no better time to drink this marvellous beer.
