Editor's note: Brewed by Ølfabrikken at Het Anker, Mechelen, Belgium.

Ølfabrikken Abbey Ale is our interpretation of the dark and strong ales brewed in the Belgian monasteries. A more than hundred year old yeast strain provides the beer with notes of raisins and prunes supplemented by a discrete spicy aroma from coriander. The flavor is big and vinous and dominated by caramel. Enjoy it with braised meat, game and ripe cheese. Of course unpasteurized, unfiltered and refermented in the bottle.

75 cl bottle. Pours deep brown with a huge light brown head. Aroma is hoppy, sweet caramel, malty and yeasty. Yeast provides clear notes of raisins and a characteristic belgian aroma. Strangely this reminds me of both an Orval and Westmalle tripel at the same time. Full bodied almost winous. Alcohol presence is clear but softly blended with the malt. Flavour is caramel sweet with a good bitterness in the end. A clear strength in the taste is coming from the alcohol. Sweet to light dry in the finish. I wonder what this will taste like in a year from now.

Bottled. Orangeish amber colour with huge slightly off-white head. Aroma is some yeast, fruits, alcohol and mild spicing. Flavour is fruits, spices, alcohol and yeast. While cold not the most exciting thing, but as it warms up it gets smoother.
