This is another Abbey Brewing Co. house recipe. Beers like this were brewed by monks centuries ago to sustain them during the Lenten fast. This beer is light brown in color with hints of raisons, chestnuts, chocolate and candied fruits.

Draft at source. In Miami. Nose is light medicinal. Almost sharpie. Light fig. Taste is better. Just kind of sweet with some alcohol presence. Missing dried fruits and complexity. Very one dimensional. Dry finish.

ACHops (1374) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2016
On tap @ Abbey Brewing. Pours heavy reddish dark brown, with thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is dark sweet toasted caramel malts, lots of rich figs, leather, oak, hazelnuts. Taste is similar - creamy rich roasty malt, juicy figs and raisins, nice clean bone dry finish. Very light Belgian yeast notes. Well done dubbel, rich and tasty, I enjoyed this.

Pours fairly clear brown with low light tan head. Aroma of barnyard, nuts, light toffee, wet wood. Taste is sweet, nutty and herby, rich, burnt butter in the finish. Body is light to medium, smooth with soft carbonation.

Thereís a ton of fruity yeast character to this one. Itís cloudy dark amber with a long lasting head. Itís got tons of plum, banana and spice in the nose--a real fruitcake of a beer. This is a bit too sweet bit does have a nice toffee malt character and rich, thick texture to show for it. Tasty Belgian. If it was dry, it would be excellent.

On draft at the Abbey. Pours a dark amber-brown with an off-tan head. Nose is raisin, nuts, candied fruit, and banana with notes of yeast. Flavor is similar with big raisin and some overripe banana with bits of yeast and dark fruit. Interesting dubbel overall.

EchtBier (2) - Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2015 does not count
Served on tap Very dark at the bar so hard to see true color but looks correct to style. Poured with nice lace, creamy light toffee head All the flavored you would expect (raisin, spice etc) but later noticed a taste that couldn't quite discern - maybe a burnt backbone? Right now not my favorite but full disclosure-just recovering from being ill so taste may be off ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An interesting dubbel. Kind of has an herbaceous or anise element in addition to the regular sweet fruity candy malts. Interesting.
