4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great flavor. A great example of a Belgian Dubbel.
Brown in color, nice tan head that stays around. Not a lot of carbonation after the pour. Sweet sugary caramel aroma. Sweet flavor and a lasting sweet finish. Just enough hops to balance it out.

Bit of a strange bottle - at times more bitter and dry than I’d expect/want from a dubbel. Other pours were superb. All in all a good beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark brown, maroon highlights, amber head. Spicy aroma, maybe coriander cumin, definitely banana. Taste is banana, coriander, hints of anise and hops. Dark fruit seems right. My first dubbel.

Abbey Ale is fantastic in the safest way possible. It looks beautiful when it’s poured, it’s not offensive to any senses, and it tastes rich while maintaining a smooth finish. I love drinking this because it doesn’t really have a weakness. It’s just good.
