BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Adelbert's Brewery
Texas, United States

Style: Dubbel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
2015 Gold Medal from Artisan Awards
2014 Craft Beer Awards Gold Medal

THE ALE: This clean, malty ale has a robust flavor with fruity, plum aromas. The carbonation balances the moderate sweetness from the malt, resulting in a dry and smooth finish. It pairs great with savory foods like barbecue, rich stews, grilled meats, and dark chocolate cake.

THE STORY: The Colombian Monks could really cut loose during the annual retreat hosted by Del at his home near Naivasha Lake in Kenya. Smiling ear to ear and with ale in hand, they would dance the night away! You might find you are doing your own little happy dance after a glass of Dancin’ Monks. Drink, dance, repeat.

Thanks greid!

translucent deep amber color. white tight head.

smell is loaded with Belgian yeast esters. Slight hints of toffee and caramel.

The taste is overwhelming dry. Initial sweetness is cut of almost instantaneously by that pervading dryness. Its a nutty dryness that I normally associate with Nut Brown Ales. Carolina Nut Brown comes to mind.

It finishes clean with a light sweet coating.

Its like a hybrid between a Dubbel and a Nut Brown.
