BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States
ommegang.com

Style: Dubbel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Abbey was Ommegang's first beer and was styled after Dubbels produced by Belgian Trappist monks. A deep, rich and malty ale, Abbey uses several Belgian specialty malts and spices resulting in a very aromatic, flavorful beer.

Deep burgundy in color, topped by a dense tan head, Abbey Ale is rich on the palate but with a dry finish. Suitable for cellaring, Abbey develops wonderful caramel, fig, and currant notes with age.

12 ounce bottle served cold in glass beer challis.

A) Abundant off white billowy head takes its time to settle. Mahogany brown soup made cloudy with loads of suspended fine, bottle conditioned carbonation. Near perfection!

S) Sweet baked pastries, sour dough, raisons. Rich, complex and delicious

T) Cutting to the chase, this is perhaps the best American made example of the Belgian Dubbel. Orange citrus, dark cooked fruit, Belgian candy sugar, mild hops. It's all there and its there in proper proportion.

M) Complex, sticky sweet. Ample carbonation that lasts and lasts. Smooth with just a hint of hop-bitter after taste.

O) Excellent example of the Belgian style dubbel. Going right back to buy more.
