11.2oz bottle, date stamped 180117, presumably brewed on Jan 18, 2012 with a "best by" date 5 years into the future.
Pours a murky brown color with a bubbly beige head that never goes away - unbelievable retention! Not much for lacing though. Aromas are musty, earthy, fresh woodsy air, ripe fruit. Tastes are fruity, earthy, brown sugar, candi sugar, spicy, orange zest, faint banana, booze. Mouth is creamy and smooth, finishes spicy, warm, and boozy. Overall, great example of the style with nice complexity. I should have picked up another and let it age for awhile just to see how it comes out a year or 2 later. Either way, it's a solid Abbey Dubbel.
