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…

22 oz bomber pours a dark brown color with a nice white head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, dark malt, with light brandy in the background. Full bodied, very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fitwitchik (234) - USA - JUN 10, 2014
Poured from a bomber into a Heavy Seas Pint glass a dark mahogany with a light tan head. Aroma of is sweet malty some spice. Flavor is caramel a lot of spice with more sweetness. Definite Belgian Abbey flavor yet when compared to many other Belgian Abbey ales this is less than outstanding. So many other non imported abbey ales that are much better. Brand barrel doesn’t stand out. Decent but not headed out to get another bottle.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2014
From the June 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish caramel, tart apples and brandy. The flavor was sweet and malty caramel, tart apple and brandy. Quite boozy. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok but disappointing.

ROBC3366 (510) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Carmel colored but with a thin tan head. Head as memorable as that time in Vietnam. That brandy comes through in the aroma and is nice. Notes of dark fruit, vanilla, brown sugar, and some oak ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lownote (34) - USA - MAY 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 8oz pour from tap with a dark color that looks golden brown in the light and has a thin off white head. Great Belgian light mouth feel. Taste is just slightly fruit sweet like probably from the brandy barrel. Just a hint of alcohol
