This Belgian style Dubbel is brewed from a classic recipe using Pilsner malt and dark candi sugar. This is a delicious winter treat that pairs well with delicious food. (Description provided by company)
A very rich and malty style, the Dubbel is often full-bodied and slightly sweet with some dark fruit flavors - though generally not as many as a Belgian Strong Dark Ale.
As is the case with Belgian beers, the yeast give fruity esters and spicy phenol flavors, and although the malts generally give the beer a dark amber to dark brown appearance - the caramel malt flavors seldom to never venture past sweet and toasted. Hop bitterness is generally fairly low, with the upper single-digit alcohol well hidden.
Serve at cellar temperature, 55-57 degrees, in a chalice or stemmed tulip glass.

Abita 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-cent donation to St. Joseph's Abbey with every bottle sold of this heavenly brew.
A dark amber, strong Trappist ale from one of Belgium’s six official abbey breweries. Achel 8° is hard to find even in Belgium; in the U.S. it’s up there with the rarest of beers. The Bruin is shockingly easy to drink despite the alcohol and complexity.
When you first encounter the many layers of flavor and aroma from our Abbey Ale, you may begin to rejoice in a certain kind of perfection, just as the Trappist monks who invented the style did hundreds of years ago.
