Something of a caramel malt aroma. Clear amber color with a white head that didn’t last long. Left lace tatters, though. Medium bodied with fine, creamy, carbonation. The flavor is caramel sweet, with some yeasty spice (very little), and very arguably some vanilla. The finish is not all that dry, there’s very little bitter, there’s a veg note of some kind. Might be closer to Newcastle Brown than many ales. It’s ok, but it is not going to amaze your palate. Good for Coors, but it probably indicates where craft brew will go if the macro brewers buy it up. Blandland.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a medium frothy off white head. The aroma is very malty and grainy. Decent lacing on this one leaving traces. The taste is a caramel malt with a spicy finish but too watery. I dont know why this is labeled an abbey.

Ratman197 (14970) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of burnt carmel, light spice and a hint of corn. Palate waslight bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, strange spice and some odd tomato notes with a smooth slightly dry lingering oddball flavor I can’t put my finger on. ( I won’t put my tongue on it again either!)

Tmoney99 (14620) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear brown with a large off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet malty aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet flavor with medium sweet finish. Soft drinkable brew.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 8, 2008
12oz bottle, best by March 09. Medium beige head that mostly dissipates to a creamy coating, crystal clear copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, candi sugar, caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, brown sugar, caramel, light astringency. Creamy light-medium body, light acidity.

Drake (13954) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2008
12 ounce bottle. Coors attempts a dubbell. Hmm. Pours a reddish brown color with a medium head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is sweet and earthy malts. Sweet caramel malts in the taste, with not much else. Thin bodied.

BeerandBlues2 (13594) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown, mahogany in fact, with a small, frothy, off-white to light brown head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, bread, caramel), light to non-existent hops, average yeast (leaves, dough, cheese) with notes of dates, brown sugar, and wet paper sacks. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a metallic finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness. Not a bad beer, and certainly warms the holiday mood. It is nice to see such a large brewer buck the norm and go for a less mainstream style.

2.7
Dogbrick (13145) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2007
On draught at Winking Lizard in Columbus. Pours a clear copper color with a medium thin and foamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Sticky patches of lacing. Mild aroma of grain, spice and fruit. Light effervescent body with a subtle malt and spice character. Light nuts and dough in the flavor as well. The finish is mildly spiced and leaves a nutmeg and malt aftertaste. Does not meet my expectation of what an Abbey Dubbel should be, but does meet my expectation of Coors’ expectation of what an Abbey Dubbel should be.

(12oz. bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, brown sugar, and toasted grain. Flavor of caramel, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.

2.8

Tap @ Timbers, Denver, CO. Pours dark brown with a creamy head. Aroma of malt, nuts, wheat. Taste is lightly spices, caramel and brown sugar. Medium body. Okiesh. 281110
