Heavy Seas "Holy Sheet" (Mutiny Fleet)
Heavy Seas Brewing Company - Baltimore, Maryland USA
Abbey Dubbel (ABV 9%)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a dark cranberry brown with a large (2-3 finger) light tan creamy head that diminished down to a thin layer and large collar of residue, thus producing some really good sheets of streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a dark bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of dark fruit (plums and raisins), brown sugar and a mild ruby port scent.

The taste was sweet, malty and a bit acidic with hints of port wine and brown sugar early on and then became sweetly acetic with a good strong note of dark fruit and a decent alcohol finish. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a nice fruity alcohol warming sensation at the end.

Mouthfeel was medium in body and creamy in texture with a mildly soft carbonation.

Overall a fantastic Abbey Ale with the fruit, malts and alcohol working very well together. YUM...
