With big, roasted malt character and notes of bitter dark chocolate and coffee, One-Eyed Jacques goes rogue from the fleet of stouts with bold fruity esters, and raisin and fig-like qualities from Belgian yeast and Belgian candi sugar used in the brew. It’s everything you’d want in a stout — dark, rich and full-bodied — all with distinct Belgian character with an underlying sweetness and slight spice.
