Description: 

Maimed in an accident that left him with a hunched back, Brother Joseph Zoettl worked in the St. Bernard Abbey power plant shoveling coal. In his spare time, Brother Joseph used found objects such as marbles and chunks of concrete and tile to build miniature shrines and buildings on the Abbey grounds. Over 40 years, he created 125 different models and replicas. Today, the Ave Maria Grotto covers three acres and is world-renowned as both a fun roadside attraction and an awe-inspiring collection of folk art. We have named our Belgian dubbel after Brother Joseph as a testament to his perseverance, his hard work, and his indomitable spirit. A full-flavored abbey-style ale with a complex taste and aroma, Brother Joseph’s Dubbel is filled with specialty malt and dark fruit character. (Description provided by company)

Straight To Ale's Brother Joseph's Dubbel pours a dark frothy amber color. It smells of brown sugar and malt, with a hint of banana. There's a bit of spice to the flavor, a fair amount of sweetness, and just a bit of bite at the finish. Delicious.

Bought a pint of Brother Joseph at Straight to Ale's taproom. Clear, bronze brew with a fat finger of off-white head. Smells of caramel sweetness and malt. The taste focuses on the malt in the flavor, some banana, and a bit of earthy hops which primarily makes itself known with a bite at the end. Nice, brown sugar aftertaste. Feels medium bodied but light enough to gulp with ease. This is becoming a favorite beer of mine at grill outs and barbeques.
