Duinen Dubbel Belgian Abbey Ale

Brouwerij Huyghe

Belgium

This had an overly sweet, toffee-like flavor that just didn't sit with me for some reason. I like the sweet flavor from dubbels and tripels, but this was almost too sweet, if that makes any sense. It was certainly drinkable, and I would have it again, were it not for the $4 price for a 33 cl bottle, even if that bottle was a nice painted white bottle with a foil neck (actually, it was a green bottle, painted white. I guess someone finally told those monks that green bottles are bad, so rather than get a new batch of brown bottles, they just broke out the paint).
