Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Brewery Ommegang Abbey Ale.
From the Brewery Ommegang website: “Ale with Spices: Licorice Root, Star Anise, Sweet Orange Peel, Coriander, Cumin. Rich, fruity and aromatic Burgandian brew. Abbey Ale was made to celebrate the many layers to life.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours copper brown with a huge off-white head and sticky lacing.
Aroma: Sweet caramel and chocolate malt, dark fruit, spices, Belgian yeast and candi sugar.
Taste: Raisins, sweet caramel, roasted and chocolate malts, dark fruits, Belgian yeast, candi sugar with a slight spice and booziness.
Overall: Well balanced and enjoyable, Brewery Ommegang Abbey Ale is a solid Dubbel Ale. So far I’ve liked every beer of theirs I’ve tried and this 8.5% ABV offering is no exception. Most definitely worth picking up!
