Mad Abbot Dubbel
ABV = 6.9%
The Little Brewing Company’s Mad Abbot range of ales are produced in the style of the Trappist monasteries of Belgium.
These ales are bottle conditioned resulting in yeast sediment in the bottle, and undergo careful cellaring before release. They are made with finesse in true Belgian style with alcohol content well hidden beneath the complex flavour.
The Mad Abbot Dubbel is a dark, rich, luxuriously strong ale.
Colour and appearance:
Dark brown (from Belgian dark candy sugars) with excellent head retention and a thick creamy head.
Malty with complex fruity esters, raisins, plums, spice, chocolate and a distinct rum character.
Rich and malty with dark fruit characters (raisin, plum), rum and chocolate. Medium/full bodied with a warming mouth feel.
Suggested Food Match:
The beer is almost a meal in itself. The rum and raisin characters match well with chocolate based desserts or a block of dark chocolate.
