The Augustijn Dark is the logical addition to the existing beers Augustijn Blonde and Augustijn Grand Cru and is a true beer of 8% alc. that appeals both the occasional as the seasoned beer lover! With the grand balance between aroma, taste en after taste, the Augustijn Dark is added value in this segment and ensures that the range of Augustijn-beers reflects a delicious spectrum of tastes within the rich Belgian beerculture. The beer is not distinctly sweet, as many would expect from a dark specialty beer. It tastes rather lightly smoked with a touch of nuts and caramel.
