OVERALL RATING:

Sight: Opaque deep copper body. Tall tan head brimming with carbonation bubbles. Thick lacing on glass.

Scent: Caramelized brown sugar, raisins, and Belgian yeast.

Flavor: Layered flavors–raisins and nuts at front, citrus at back. Underlying taste of dark bread. Lingering flavor of anise and clove.

Feel: Thin-to-medium, slightly creamy mouthfeel with perfect carbonation.

Concluding remarks: Ommegang’s Abbey Ale is one of the best, if not the best, Dubbel I have had this month. While perhaps a little more intense than the traditional Belgian Dubbel style, the rich fruit and candy flavor profile is highly enjoyable. Try this; you’ll forget that this beer wasn’t brewed by the hands of the holy and was actually divined 3,264 miles from Belgium.
