In a recent trip to Arkansas, I was fortunate enough to find some beers I can’t get here in Ohio, New Belgium Abbey being one of them. Although, new Belgium will begin distributing in Ohio soon.
Color is on the orange side of brown. Pleasant aroma with toffee and yeast funk. Round malt flavor with a hint of banana. Bit of mustiness in a dry finish, but it fits. Tight carbonation provides a little bite. As it warms a little, I’m getting some black pepper in the flavor and caramel in the finish.
One of the best American Dubbels I’ve had
