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…

DrSilverworm (6571) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2013
22oz bottle, 2013 vintage. Mostly clear red - orange color. Slightly brown. Thin, off-white head. Couple dots of lace on the side of the glass. Kind of spicy taste, moderate sweet. Minimal bitter, just the slightest bite in the finish... 9% ABV is otherwise reasonably well hidden. Bigger body. Kind of smooth, lighter carbonation. Slightly dry finish, and a somewhat spicy, slightly slick finish. Good caramel, butterscotch, light spice, vanilla, hint of candy sugar. Burnt caramel type sugars, kind of tiramisu-like... Pretty solid, complex, tasty barrel-aged belgian... Not sure what genre it fits under, dark trippel? Heavy dubbel ? Whatever it is, it’s pretty nice, and a great value for the money.

drowland (6082) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2013
9/2/13. 22oz bottle from Five Points. Brown pour, plenty of reds under the light, with a small khaki head, minimal lacing. Surprisingly light aroma, some sweetness, very mild barrel, plenty of brown sugar, candy sugar, and caramel. Lightly sweet flavor, caramel, subtle barrel, a hint of burnt caramel. Meh.

Never had the base. Apparently it’d beeen thorugh some tougher times, but this barreled beer had qualities of both a good dubbel (bubble gum, clove, bready yeastiness, some sugary sweetness (but not too much)) and excellent use of the barrel. Enough for the brandy to shine without overpowering the beer. Super smooth, very much enjoyed, and a bit of a pleasant surprise. Will actually be one of my better scored dubbels

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a semi-transparent dark copper with off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid too; yeast and dark fruit.Tastes like it smells with a bit of clove too. Nice on the palate. A solid dubbel.
