COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is good stuff. A strong Belgian dubbel. Beautiful in the glass, thick and foamy in the mouth. Sweet dark fruits enveloped in caramel and spice.

Elwood (3190) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a murky reddish brown with a sizeable light tan head. The nose is rich with dried dates and figs. The flavor is sweet with notes of Fig Newtons, dried apple, caramel, and dates. The abundant carbonation helps lighten the sweetness a bit. Medium to full bodied with a sweet, malty finish. Nice brew.

75 cl bottle vintage 2006 @ Beer Hunter’s. Produced 30.11.2006, BB3 01/2012
Aroma is very sweet with raisins, sugar, plums and malt. Flavour has raisins, plums, sugar, toffee and some malt. Too sticky and sweet – even after six years. Closer to a Barley Wine than Abbey Dubbel.
