COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s Note: Holy Sheet is now brandy barrel aged. If you had the non-barrel aged, older addition, please rate it under Holy Sheet (1997-2012).

Rich, complex and unique. Abbey style ales are transcendent, and ours stands proudly in the ranks. Aged in brandy barrels, Holy Sheet is a mahogany ale brewed with Belgian Abbey yeast, candi sucre, and unique crystal malts. Rounded, spicy caramel flavors mixed with vinous notes and oak overtones, this ale pairs well with quiet contemplation…

Sharp on brandy aroma in beginning. Some prune and raisin. A little booze. A touch touch barrel on what would otherwise be a good Belgian strong. Pours dark brown with OK head and lacing. Light bittersweet finish. Pretty good balance. Tap at Churchkey.
