Tap from Carlsbad location. Very good beer. There is a definite caramel aroma and flavor along with some fig and sweetness. Very tasty and Iím surprised this is listed as a 6.6 abv beer, I would have guessed more like 8.

I asked the bartender about this. She said itís a new beer and that it has no name (i.e., itís simply, "Belgian Style Abbey..."). I had a sample and liked it so I refilled my growler then poured it at home into my Duvel glass: sweet notes of biscuits and banana in the aroma; cloudy brown body with minimal tan head and minimal lacing; nice flavor--sweet and fruity; smooth, good and light carbonation, and slightly creamy; great brew.

OK. I didnít see this in the database. Itís been on tap for a little while, and no one seems to want to enter and rate it. I donít see anything similar in deScription. There was no brand name (like surfboard dubbel or something like that). Cloudy amber color. Lots of banana in the aroma. Sweetish. Very easy to drink. Mellow and delicious. No head (taster size). Mellow tap carbonation. Very very good.
