Short: An Abbey Quadrupel with rich amaretto and flambeed banana flavors but a harsh metallic finish

Origin: Ladyface Size: 4oz Price: ~$2
Long: Clear deep red pour generates some okay spotty lacing. Nose has some soft chocolate banana with awesome flambeed banana’s foster. Rich amaretto body finishes too dry and chalky with metallic penny licking.
Flaws: Less of an Abbey Dubbel than their Blind Ambition Amber, should be Quadrupel. Palate is metallic, harsh, and overattenuated.
Skill Level: Honors student

Amber colored pour with a khaki head. Nice dark fruit aroma of dates, grapes, and raisins. Brown sugar, yeast, and some mild spice. A nice toasted malt aroma and a hint of roast. The flavor is fairly sweet with some brown sugar, caramel, toasted malt, and fruit. Plenty of grape flavor, dates, raisins, and plums, too. Subtle roast and chocolate on the finish. Just a hint of alcohol.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. It kinda surprised me this was a dubbel. It was tasty, malty and sweet but maybe missing some of the more Belgian yeast notes and esters. Nice though.

On tap. Pours a hazy brown body with a lasting tan head. Brown sugar and banana aromas, chocolate and Belgian esters. Lightly grain and biscuity. Very sweet, raspberry and plum flavors. Lightly nutty. Maybe a bit under attenuated. Lively bubbles.
