Bornem Double Ale

Brouwerij Van Steenberge

Belgium

The head is a dark tan, very reminiscent of a root beer float. Bornem is dark brown in color, sugary sweet, and 8% ABV. And, apparently, it's good luck for the Calgary Flames. Between the time I left the room to get this from my beer fridge to the time I finished pouring it (6-8 minutes), the Flames scored twice in Game 3 of the 2004 Stanley Cup Finals, both times while I was out of the room. The home team does have a habit of doing that, dating back to April 1998, as my buddies Kris and John will confirm.
