COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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…

Pours dark red with a big head and some lacing. Smells sweet. Tastes of fruit, dark chocolate, caramel, bread and subtle alcohol. I expected it to be hotter. Light mouthfeel. I’m going to cellar one for a year and see what happens.

Westmeister (1527) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle from Pops!. Pours a dark cola color with medium small head and spotty lacing. Smell is big raisin, earthy, bits of spice, sweet. If I didn’t know this was aged in Brandy barrels I would have not picked it up. With me knowing, I do detect a hint of brandy. Otherwise, just a nice smelling dubbel. Taste is candied plums, spice, alcohol, some oak, tad vinous/brandy in the background, swirling caramel. I dig how this is very nicely made dubbel with a just a very well incorporated barrel addition. It comes off subtle, rounded out, but just a tad boozy. Overall, (after looking at my ratings) this is tup there as one of the best if not the best dubbel I have had to date. Nice.
