Founded in the 1880s just north of Ypres in northwestern Belgium, Brouwerij Deca was destroyed in World War I and had to be rebuilt after the war was over. The brewery produces a range of traditional Belgian strong ales.
Vleteren Dark Old Strong Ale pours a deep, clear reddish-brown colour, with warming aromas of gingerbread and biscuits mingling with dried fruits and apple. The flavour is rich, with smooth malts and ripe fruits complementing the slight alcoholic sweetness. Buy Vleteren Dark Old Strong Ale for a superbly balanced example of a Belgian strong dark ale.
