A classic abbey dubbel; with elegant sweetness, lightly caramelized flavor, translucent tawny-brown body, luscious head, and floral bouquet. A delicate balance between malts and hops gives way to hints of toffee and chocolate in the finish. Its velvety smoothness belies the 8% alcohol content.
This ale can be stored upright for up to three years, in a dark, cool place at 42-50° F. This keeps the lees (or yeast) settled in the bottle. The yeast keeps the beer alive and protects it from ageing. You can drink the beer later: it will just become sweeter and feel denser in the mouth, much like an old port.
