Another Ommegang beer, this time their excellent Abbey Ale. I love the Belgian Style beers and the dubbels can be a tricky style to get right. Ommegang has done the style well with their Abbey Ale. It poured a dark ruby brown with a substantial head that remained throughout my tasting. The aroma was full of Belgian yeast notes, cherries, and dark fruits that emanated from my glass as I allowed the beer to warm. There is a lot going on in this one and many different flavors revealed themselves with each taste. Hints of cherries, chocolate, dark fruits and caramel along with a slight Belgian yeast flavor melded themselves with a smooth creamy mouthfeel to create a magnificent tasting experience. This may be the be the best Ommegang beer that shows a depth and character in their brewing that is evident in all of their brews.
