COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a big, malty and rich Belgian-style abbey ale. We combined both US- and Belgian-malted barley and a specially selected yeast strain to produce a truly unique beer. This beer was brewed as a thank-you to my father Vince who has helped to make this brewery a reality. It will be brewed once a year and released on Father’s Day. This is a great beer for aging, so lay some down and try it in a year or two! Sensory Profile: Ripe fruit, figs and chewy malt are a few of the flavors you will encounter in this beer. There is an underlying roastiness and caramel sweetness that comes through toward the end. Hops play a background role to the malt character of this brew. Food Pairing: This beer can stand on its own as an after-dinner drink. A rich brew to sip and enjoy, it also goes great with desert or roasted meats. Use this beer as you would a full-bodied cabernet or an aged port.

Torrefacto (547) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 8, 2014
Color caoba oscuro, con reflejos rojizos y densa espuma color crema. Aromas dulces de toffee, caramelo, pasas y toque especiado. Cuerpo medio-bajo ,quizá demasiado ligero para el estilo, con inicio dulce y afrutado al que se añaden sabores acaramelados. Bastante bien.

Bottle shared tonight by Dr Rob, thanks for the opportunity! Fruity caramel and brown sugar with a hint of chocolate offset with yeasty earthy flavors. This is a nice dubbel.

sulphursouls (42) - SWITZERLAND - APR 28, 2014
This is a Belgian Style Abbey Ale or more accurately said, an attempt at one. The head was off white and rather small, and the look was a cloudy dark brown. The aroma was of sour hops. The taste was creamy (a tick on the Abbey Ale style inspection), with some caramel and a tiny amount of roasted coffee. It finished with a light sourness and there was pretty much no aftertaste. Not bad.

i can’t remember the last time time i had a Capt Lawrence beer that wasn’t over carbed, so this was a treat! .. . pours a deep molasses brown .. . mild headring, light lacing .. . bread, woody, plums, and cooked pear skin .. . light mouth .. . tasty beer, the abv is well masked as well .. . . Your heart stops when you sneeze. It doesn’t. That’s called cardiac arrest.

glennmastrange (2255) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle. Moderate roasted grain, cereal, and chocolate milk for the malt, light to moderate cooked orange and perfume for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with brwon sugar, date, toffee, and a hint of vinegar. Head is small, creamy, light tan, with good slippery lacing and is mostly lasting, Color is muddy, medium brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation and a tart finish. A bit more tart than most Abbey Dubbels, but still a nice well rounded Belgian.
