Weyerbacher Tango

It’s one of my last Mondays off before End of Quarter starts. I am definitely not looking forward to that at all. So far, I’ve mounted a knife rack today, done a bunch of laundry and taken some of the garbage out. All in a days work for me. Anyways, the lawyer picked this one up for me a few weeks back. Let’s see how it went.


ABV: 10.6%

Style: Belgian Dark Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Tango is a big, bold, Belgian-style dark ale brewed with 1,200 pounds of cherries! Tango pours a beautiful ruby color with a nice fluffy head offering a very complex aroma of cherries and other dark fruits. The strong 750ml glass bottle finished with a cork and cage allows the very robust bottle-conditioning responsible for Tango’s effervescence. Dark fruit flavors join the cherries to match up with the strong malt bill with the Belgian yeast adding its 2 cents along the way. Tango weighs in at 10.6% ABV and was brewed using a base of Pilsener Malt with Honey Malt, Special B, Aromatic Malt and a touch of Chocolate Malt. Apollo hops balance all that sweetness to 35 IBU. Tango is available throughout our distribution area for a limited time only!”

Random: I’ve finished season 4 of Dexter and it was really, really good.

This brew poured with a barely there white head that dissipated instantly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a deep mahogany color that was slightly cloudy with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was really sweet with lots of cherries and some plum notes. Figs were also there with a touch of wood and some booze. The taste was even better than the nose. I got lots of cherries with prunes and candi sugar. Molasses and peppercorns came through as the brew warmed. The beer was on the thicker side with low carbonation. The finish was long with lots of sweetness from the cherries and some residual candi sugar. This was probably one of the best Weyerbacher beers that I’ve had. It was a great sipper with lots of depth to it. I would definitely have this one again.
