Shared 25.4 oz. bottle. Dark brown with thin but long-lasting creamy head. Aromas of caramel, dark fruits, and some alcohol. Yeast, dark fruits, and alcohol flavors. A rather sweet finish. Good, but not earth-shattering.

AnokaBrewer (169) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2015
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 Id expect/want from a dubbel. Other pours were superb. All in all a good beer.

OnTheTrail (332) - Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2015
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 its poured, its not offensive to any senses, and it tastes rich while maintaining a smooth finish. I love drinking this because it doesnt really have a weakness. Its just good.
