Sierra Nevada Ovila Dubbel
From Sierra Nevada – Ovila Abbey Dubbel is brewed in the abbey tradition, and perfect for the re-birth of spring. Clear and deep copper in color, this Abbey Dubbel has a complex and rich malty sweetness with hints of caramelized sugar. The aroma is a heady and layered mix of fruit and spice, with hints of clove, raisin, and black pepper from the use of an abbey style yeast.
Sierra Nevada Brewing – Sierra Nevada Ovila Dubbel – 750 ml. bottle poured into a goblet. 7.5% abv.
Appearance: Pours a deep red with a head that subsides to nothing.
Aroma: Dark fruit. Dates/ fig.
Taste: Toasty malt, raisin, prune. Light cocoa. Alcohol seems proportionate. One of the drier dubbels, not overly sweet and fruity. You can still taste the “Sierra Nevada” in this some how. I mean that lovingly.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, average carbonation.
Overall: Very balanced, not the best example of a classic Dubbel, but very tasty in it’s own right.
