BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

I picked this up in a growler from whole foods. Im a big fan of Adelberts and this was not disappointing. It poured a nice reddish copper with a nice white head that stayed a while but leaving no lacing. Taste was a little more boozy than others from Adelberts despite only having a only a 7.2 ABV. Up front I got a little prune/ raisin taste but not much else. The tastes were very subdued compared to other offerings from this excellent brewery. Overall it was a good beer but not one of my favorites.

750 mL corked and caged bottle. date of 6/13/2013, Batch 006. So a little more than a year old.

pours a clear golden cooper color, until the last pour with the yeast that's a bit cloudy. foamy bright white head, but it fades quickly. way too light in color for a dubbel. smell has a bit of that belgian yeasty funk, but not the complex malt that is expected of the style. same with the taste. just a bit of biscuit, underwhelming. mouthfeel isn't bad, a little bit of thickness, lower carbonation, coats the mouth.

overall - for the high price - just doesn't hit the mark for a dubbel.
