Ovila Abbey Dubbel

ABV (%): 7.50
Brewery: Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Scott bought me this beer.  Poured from a 1 pt. 9.4 oz. bottle into a freezer-chilled pint glass.

Dark amber hue, highly carbonated, thick head, light, but frothy.

Light malt smell, toffee, maybe toasted almond, lots of yeast.

Bit of clove flavor.  Explodes on the back of the palate.  Super bitter, but not in an overwhelming manner.  Very layered.  Spicy, but light.  Excellent hop flavor.

Highly carbonated.  Excellent mouthfeel.  Sharp and crisp across the palate.

Complex without being thick or heavy.  Very refreshing.  Light-bodied for a dubbel, but not slack in flavor.
