Bornem Double Abbey Ale

Bornem Double Abbey Ale

Bornem Double Abbey Ale is a medium-dark, smooth, and luscious Trappist beer. It is slightly sweet w/a hint of coffee and fruit and a good head on it. Totally delicious. Its sort of like a more sweet version of Chimay Blue. Supposedly, the monks used to fast for 40 days and drink nothing but this ale. I guess they thought that getting hammered helped them get closer to God.
