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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- deep clear amber with a thin, rocky tan head. Great head retention and well defined rings of lacing. Small, slow rising carbonation.

S- beautiful yeast character. Earthy, spicy, funky. Bready malt, caramel, and a touch of molasses. Not much fruit, but there is a hint of raisin if you look for it.

T- molasses, caramel, raisin, Cinnamon, clove, toasted bread, funky yeast. Surprisingly complex for an American dubbel.

M- medium bodied, creamy, fine carbonation.

O- very surprised, in a good way.

Serving type: bottle
