TRVE Brewing Co Strange Gateways

What the brewers say

“Black lager brewed with Troubadour Serenade, Blue Ballad, Mod 300, and Rootshoot Pilsner.”

What our panel thought

“Coffee, dark chocolate, and dark caramel notes complement a decidedly roast-malt-forward nose with hints of sweet floral hops in the background. Despite the roast-forward aroma, a supremely clean, lightly sweet caramel-like initial flavor slowly fades into a pleasant light floral bitterness that lingers into the finish, as hints of roast and light smoke emerge.”

What our editors thought

“Bold dark malt nose, bright carb, and a slight acidic tinge push a strong dark body with wood and bread-crust notes.”
