Harriet’s Dark Abbey is our tribute to the classic Belgian Dubbel. It pours brown with a persistent off-white head. Hints of chocolate and toast accent the beer’s malt-forward character. Fruity esters resembling raisins and other dried fruit are present, along with subtle spicy qualities. Medium bodied, effervescent, dry finish… remarkably drinkable.

On tap at moot-i. Aroma is dried cherries, apples, fig, and ripe banana. Very ripe banana, actually, somewhere between fermented and a gracious rotting. It works, but lacks a good bite. Standard amber in color, hews toward orange. Taste profile is similar to the fruits described above. Not very concentrated up front, finishes stronger with a touch of alcohol. Weirdly soda-esque palate. Pretty good overall, but not my jam tonight.

Growler shared at RBWG 2011 from notes. Pours a clear brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel and toffee malts, lightly toasted bread, dark fruits favoring raisins and figs with light spices. Decent, but quite sweet.

Tap. Tulip glass at new Bohemia. Dark amber. Subtle aroma. Great flavor throughout. Perfectly balanced. Good Belgian yeast flavor and the right amount of sweetness and alcohol. Nice sweet finish. Very well done.

Tap at New Bohemia. A stunning looking dubbel with a dark copper color. Definitely owns its Belgian roots but well balanced with a dark sweetness. Really enjoy this one...a supremely underrated MN brewery. Abbey-solutely try this dubbel.

Pours a burnt orange with lacing. Aromas are big sweet bananas. Similar flavours. Smooth and full bodied. Nice!

This was a nice sweet fruit malty dubbel. Pretty typical for the style, which is a good thing here. Nice.

Tap at The Local. Pours dark with some malt aromas. Flavor is fruity with raisins and an almost apple taste. Very interesting and pretty tasty.

Wow, nice dubbel from this local brewer. Not sure if it is bubble gum or cotton candy, but there is lots of it, good spice and some dark fruit, a bit of that barnyard I love. Cant wait for another.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at moto-i. Clear reddish brown pour with a nice cream head. Nose is spice and dark fruit. Palate is a bit thin. Taste is nut, spice, a bit of banana, and a touch of dried dark fruit. Good not great.

Tap. Hazy maroon color with no head. Didn’t really see what the bartender did when pouring it. Big fruity aroma. Lots of raisins, toast, Dark brown sugar, and a spicy character. Taste is unbelievably spice forward. Clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. It can be a bit overpowering. Not as much fruit, but there still is plenty of sweet sugar. A little thin. Not the best offering from this brewery.
