Block 15 Brewing has released its late winter seasonal offering, a Belgian-inspired Quadrupel called The Prophecies.

The latest in Block 15’s seasonal Bottle Conditioned Series is available on draft and in the bottle through early spring around Oregon and parts of Washington. Artfully bottle conditioned using Block 15’s custom-fabricated mixing tank, The Prophecies is designed to be enjoyed both freshly bottled and cellared.

Inspired by one of the brewer’s favorite ales from the Ardennes Mountains, The Prophecies was brewed in the shadow of the Cascade Mountain range with Pilsner, Munich and specialty malts, and dark Belgian candi sugar. Gently hopped for balance and fermented with select Trappist yeast, The Prophecies hints of dark fruit, Dutch cocoa, and oak aged rum with a long, warm finish.

Grains: 2-row, Pilsner, Munich Light, Munich Dark, Pale Wheat Malt, Monastique, Chocolate, Special B
Adjunct: Dark Candi Sugar
Yeast: Trappist High Gravity

ABV: 10.25% FG: 1015

The Prophecies is available in 500mL bottles, featuring artwork from local artist Patricia Smith.
