COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

chinchill (1867) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2013
draft served in a snifter at the brewpub where it is listed as "9.3%" ABV. Clear dark reddish amber with a weak head.the aroma is a bit weak too, yet it has plenty of flavor. Some dark fruit, including dates, in the flavor and more medium roasted malt than usual. A touch of smoke in the finish. Medium body with proper, medium carbonation. O: recommended.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Draft at the pub in South Beach. The lightly hazy, reddish-brown body is crowned by a small, creamy head of beige colored foam that settles in to a thin layer. Minimal, spotty lacing dots the glass. The aroma shows notes of cocoa, hazelnut, caramel, and brown sugar, with hints of various dark and earthy fruits. Flavors are very similar, quite nutty and chocolaty, with loads of sweet dates and figs. There’s a light earthiness that seems to keep things grounded, not allowing it to get overly sweet. The body is substantial, but perhaps just a bit the style. Still, it’s smooth, easy drinking, and not a bit hot or sticky. Overall, this is not bad at all. Pretty nice, in fact.

Butters (3763) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Draft at the Abbey. Amber orange pour with good offwhite head. Nose and flavor is very sweet with just the tiniest twinge of alcohol on the nose. Very sweet brown syrupy body.

Draft @ Abbey Brewing Company. Pours mahogany color with tan head. Molasses and malty aroma. Sweet candy sugar, raisins and spice flavors. Alcohol is slightly noticeable but not overpowering. Medium to full body with soft carbonation and a syrupy mouthfeel.
