      Deep red, high carbonation, big head. Spicy nose. Pretty big and chewy. Hint of alcohol. Tasty...if you're not familiar with Belgian Abbey Ales, this is a good one to start with.

      Golden-amber, fizzy, big head. Spicy aroma like the Double, but more subtle. Wow. This is one stiff drink. BIG malty, candy flavors and a BLAST of alcohol.
