From the centuries-old tradition of Belgian Abbey monks comes our Uber Abbey Ale (9%). Aromatic and very full bodied, the beer will pour a deep burgundy in color and feature a rich, robust depth of malt character. Grab a line – Holy Sheet! – or you might be swept overboard

    Pours a nice clear dark mahogany with a fine-bubbled pale tan head. Aroma is strong and fruity with yeasty and malty undertones and a whisper of butterscotch. Flavor is fruity and a bit sweet with malty and woody undertones. Texture is rough, edgy and tingly, leaving a pleasing finish.

    A deep mahogany colored beer. A small light tannish head rises above. Doesn’t stick around very long. Settles into a light lacing. Malt, sugar and alcohol are in the nose. The body is light to medium. Some smoothness and light carbonation. The alcohol steps forward in the tasting. Big and in your face alcohol. Sweet sugary taste. Not much else, and in that disappointing.

    Poured from a bottle to a copper color with zero head from the moment it hit the glass which is kind of weird for this style. The aroma was sweet and malty with the just a hint of belgian yeast. The taste was really sweet and had a slight finish of the yeast. It's an ok brew. Just a little sweet for me.

    The aroma is slightly sweet and earthy with hints of spice and some figs and creamy-like and very aromatic. The appearance is a dark brown and earthy and hard to see through when held to the light with a big, off-white head that sticks to the glass evenly. The mouthfeel is full-bodied and very complex and extremely well-balanced and very good. The flavor is very tasty and very creamy with hints of spice and figs with a wet finish that coats the pallet very nicely. Overall, excellent and very refreshing and very enjoyable to sip on anytime.

    While I enjoy almost everything out of Clipper City, this abbey ale is not quite as strong as the rest of the heavy seas line. The aroma pleasant, yet a little pungent. Appearance is quite dark, and red, much like the label on the bottle. Taste is nice, but nothing exciting. Overall a decent beer, but not among their best.

    Pour is ruby-brown colored, almost no head at all (and in a Chimay glass nonetheless!), completely disappointing for a supposed dubbel, lacing equally unimpressive and dull - an abbey dubbel???? Not by looking at it for sure. The aroma was spices, cinnamon, candi sugar, light bread (been gettin’ bread in a run of beers now, is it me?). The flavor was candied sweetness, some plums, strong spices, almost to the point of annoying, caramel, some light yeast notes, bread. Did I mention alcohol burn? The mouthfeel was fairly darned flat for the style. Overall, if you want a flat boring belgian strong ale that doesn’t have a lot of character (and is not offensive), this is for you. Otherwise, pick again for a real dubbel.

    Pours a dark amberish brown, so clear I could see fingerprints on the other side of the class, modest head, no lacing. Strong aroma of candied sugar and brown sugar with a flavor following suit, with lots of sweet malts, candied and brown sugar with a good bit of cherry fruitiness. Sweet, but not sickly, lots of alcohol flavor, but not detrimental. Rich flavor, well carbonated. Another good one from the Heavy Seas series.

    Clipper City has yet to blow me away, let me start with that. An amber appearance with a yeasty aroma consisting of some caramel and brown sugar. Some orange notes in the flavor as well as caramel and cherries. A rather one dimensional but ok tasting take on the Dubbel style.

    Slick and very sweet, I wasn't too impressed by this offering. Real dark amber pour with an off-white head that vanishes leaving very little lacing. Malty aroma, sugary sweet with lots of candied sugar. Oily on the palate, the alcohol is noticed right away but isn't offensive. Flavor is rather one dimensional relying on a heaping dose of sweet malts, sugary with a light hint of yeastiness. Nothing stands out with this beer except maybe the high abv., drinkable but not too noteworthy. I've enjoyed the Heavy Seas line of brews from Clipper City but this one needs some tweaking.
