Steenbrugge Dubbel Bruin

The abbey beer Steenbrugge Dubbel Bruin is a brown beer with a busty caramel malt character and a fruity, slightly smoked fermentation aroma in combination with the subtle Bruges herb mixture 'gruut', with emphasis on cinnamon. Beer of high fermentation with secondary fermentation in the bottle. Steenbrugge Dubbel Bruin is undergoing a second fermentation in the bottle. During the filling, an amount of sugar and yeast is added which in the 'warm room' is fermented into alcohols of carbon dioxide. That is why the beers in the bottle have a slightly higher alcohol level than the same beer in the barrel. The fermentation on the bottom of the bottle protects the beer against oxidation and thus against rapid aging of the taste.
