Notes/Commercial Description:
Abbey Ale honors the ancient tradition of monks who perfected the art of brewing beer to support the monastery and their "liquid bread". We offer up our support and thank them with a 25¢ donation to St. Joseph's Abbey with every bottle sold of this heavenly brew. Dark amber in color, the aroma of caramel, fruits and cloves invites you to contemplate the creamy head of this "Dubbel" or double ale. Abita Abbey Ale is a malty brew, top-fermented and bottle aged to rapturous perfection.

Nose: dark sugars - caramel to toffee, fruit, hint of anise, pepper.
Pours rich auburn with a slight have under a moussey 1" persistent lightly tan tinted foam cap.
Palate: equally malt and yeast driven. The malt flavors are a complex of caramel to rich toffee supported by yeast driven dark fruit flavors that are spiced with light pepper and a hint of anise. The toffee lingers long into the aftertaste. Very light hop accent.
The creaminess of the body gives it a medium full feel. The fine carbonation works very well with the rich malts which are balanced by the yeast and alcohol flavors.
