Abbey Belgian-Style Dubbel

New Belgium Brewing (Fort Collins, CO)
"This garnet brown hued Belgian-style Dubbel is strong on character and rich in flavor. Seven malts, including caramel Munich and chocolate, and a definitive Belgian yeast, waft off sweet, spicy aromas. Rich tones of chocolate and dark caramel mix with nuanced dried cherries, burnt sugar and figs. Sweet and roasty upfront, followed by a slightly bitter finish, Abbey is a lovely representation of the monastic beers of Belgium. Sip Abbey, and sip New Belgium’s tradition."

Beautiful dark pour. Chocolate, bready, spicey and a subtle sweetness. Very complex and very delicious. Possibly my favorite from New Belguim.
