Gravitation

a huge, deep-red ale with flavors of dark fruit, rum, toffee and raisins. A complex beer with character of audacious proportions.

First released in January, 2009, Gravitation Belgian Quad is a deep chestnut,  dark ale brewed using a variety of Belgian specialty malts. The resulting flavor is a viscous mix of dark fruit, rum, toffee and raisins balanced with aromatic fruitiness of the Belgian yeast. The prominent malt character makes Belgian-style quads an excellent candidate for aging, as long as you store your bottles upright in a cool, dark space.

Gravitation is a hearty and hefty beer,  so it’ll pair well with foods that are intensely flavored and heavy. Earthy foods like wild game and bleu cheeses stand up to Gravitation’s intensity by playing against the sweet malty character. If earthy isn’t your thing, seek out dishes that are fatty, tart or a combination of the two; foods like pork belly, mushroom ragout or rabbit with kriek, a classic dish of Belgian beer gastronomy.
