Abita Brewing Co.
Louisiana, United States

Style: Dubbel

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.

From a bomber marked best by 1/11/17. Pours a semi-opaque copper color with a finger of fluffy white head. Smell is slightly sour with rich malt aromas. I'm already excited! Airy feel with the right amount of carbonation. Taste has dark fruit flavor up front followed by a rich malt and nut body. Very good beer, this one has the feel of a Belgian-made Dubbel, which is a big compliment for an American brewery.

Caramel color with a modest head that quickly disappears. The description on the bottle is pretty accurate: a heavenly liquid bread with caramel, fruits & clove. Nicely balanced flavor with enough carbonation despite losing its head. I'm a fan of bready beers & I like this one. Very good!
