BROTHER DAVID’S TRIPLE ABBEY STYLE ALE

BROTHER DAVID’S TRIPLE ABBEY STYLE ALE by ANDERSON VALLEY BREWING COMPANY – Boonville, CA

BROTHER-DAVID’S-TRIPLE-ABBEY-STYLE-ALESubtle aromas whisper from Brother David’s Triple Abbey Style Ale by Anderson Valley Brewing Company. A moist, dank scent intoxicates. Incense reminiscent of a vintage cabernet sauvignon cork and whiff of its spilled wine. I’m enchanted by the fragrance of forest fungi, loam, soil, earth, wild yeast, alcohol and innuendo of gasoline. I know, weird, right? The viscidity is resinous and full bodied leaving a buttery syrup slag sliding off my lingua. Almost immediately I feel the purr of cognac as opposed to the pep of tequila. It’s heady and my eyes are sleepy. Flavors pleasingly evolve as the brew coalesces with oxygen in the glass over time. This slow sipper is a journey whose destination is unknown. It’s a thinking man’s ale. I’m drunk with rapture after a mere 22 ounces. I thirsted for another, but couldn’t handle it.

5/6 bottle caps.
