COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abbey Ale honors the ancient tradition of monks who perfected the art of brewing beer to support the monastery and the brothers with their "liquid bread". We offer up our support and thank them with a 25 cent donation to St. Josephís Abbey with every bottle of this heavenly brew. Dark in amber color, the aroma of caramel, fruits and cloves invites you to contemplate the creamy head of this "dubbel" or double ale. Abita Abbey Ale is a malty brew, top-fermented and bottle aged to rapturous perfection.

I made a recent visit to the brewpub in Abita Springs and had this on-tap along with a cask doppelbock and satsuma wit. This was served in a pint glass instead of a goblet, but I rarely get proper glassware anywhere. Had a nice aroma of dark fruit. Taste was similar to the aroma. Little carbonation, head, or lacing, and mouthfeel was correct for the style. Hid the alcohol fairly well. Good beer.

Nutty flavored beer with a strong almost smokey-like aroma. Deep auburn caramel color with limited clarity. Very cloudy appearance but not as deep colored as a Guinness. Medium carbonation with zero head at the top of the beer. Deliciously smooth finish that invites a second sip. Abita Abbey Ale is worth a try! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This ones pretty good. NIce sweet aroma and taste. The color is really nice as well. Iíve had this a bunch of times on tap and in the bottle and itís aways been pretty solid. It has a really good bready sweet taste which makes it easy to drink. Overall good stuff.

Aromas of dried fruit, bread and toffee. It gets a little lost in the carbonation. Copper with off white head. Same notes in the taste. Some spice as well.

its quite possible that my bottle is well past itís prime. Nice doughy bread like aroma and flavor, with hints of dig and plumb, but not much else to it, and lacking in finish. Ok, but average at best."

Sipping this beer bought from a kitschy bodega on the ground floor of the fabulous hotel Iím staying in at the corner of Canal and Bourbon streets in NOLA. pours a dark scotch-like amber with a minimal white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of over-ripe fruit, apricots, figs and apples. medium body with a slightly off bitterness, notes of caramel and over-ripe banana. finish is slightly boozy. enjoyable but not overly so.
