Monks’ Dubbel® Ale is a full-flavored and well-balanced ale with an attractive amber glow. Enticing yeast-driven aromas of banana bread, cotton candy, and treacle are a pleasant prelude to flavors of toasted walnut, dark fruit, and caramelized sugar. Mildly spicy and earthy hops artfully balance its full-bodied maltiness, yielding to a long, crisp, complex finish. This pleasant old world hop character provides a delightful counterpoint in this remarkably harmonious ale.
Monks’ Dubbel® Ale pairs well with any beef or lamb, especially barbecues or meat stews, and makes an excellent chocolate dessert accompaniment. It is also a wonderful pairing to washed rind cheeses and dried fruits.
