COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Abbey Ale er en overgæret mørk øl brygget på Husbryggeriet Jacobsen med inspiration i de mørke belgiske klosterøl.
Øllet fremstår ufiltreret og rødbrunt med en tæt beige skumkrone. Smagen er fyldig og sødmefulde med en anelse tørhed i finishen, men ingen bitterhed. Duften er overvejende frugtig med rige noter af figner, banan, anis og en smule vinøsitet.

KoNrRiI (458) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2011 0.75 bottle. Aroma of coffee and different kind of fruits, noticeable blackcurrant scent. Hazy light brown liquid with small, creamy head of great retention. Mostly bitter taste with a solid doze of saltiness and a bit of umami. Medium body and a slightly sticky texture with rather soft carbonation. Medium length, bitter and very dry finish. Too salty in my view, it lacks the balance between different ingredients what makes it slightly irritant for the tongue.

Served from bottle which been in my fridge for 5 weeks. Very surprising aroma with odours of different kinds of fruits and berries. Head disappears fast, sweet taste with none of the fruits smelled, kind of medium..

brnandersen (1866) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 15, 2011
0,75 l. bottle from the supermarket labeled as Jacobsen Abbey Ale but the beer is the same. Poured in to a trappist glass. Dark red-brown colour. Initially huge, but quickly diminishing head. Vineous aroma with chocolate and marcipan. Chocolate and caramel in a vineous taste with hints of banana. Same goes wwith the finish. Medium- to fullbodied, alcohol stays hidden. A decent beer for a bargain.

Mahogany body, white head. Aroma of yeasty fruits. Lots of raisins. Some chocolate in background. Poor version of dubbel.

rosenbergh (6672) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2011
660 ml bottle. BB 11.01.2011. From København, Denmark.
Clear mahogany colour with small off-white head. Slightly artifical aroma of caramel, toffee, chocolate and sweet fruits. Flavour is unfortunately letting us down. This could be christmas edition of Carlsberg Lager. Sugar sweetness, some Dunkel notes but unfortunately that’s it. Some alcohol sweetness but otherwise alcohol is quite well hidden. But much else on the positive side.
