Holgate Double Trouble
Style: Abbey Ale / Dubbel
Format: 330ml Bottle
Like most Belgian style Abbey ales this Dubbel (pronounced “due-bell”) is big on flavour and alcohol. When the Belgian monks created this style of beer they took things to the extreme and added double the malt, double the hops and as a result ended up with double the alcohol content compared to other beers.
Holgate Double Trouble is a topshelf beer and drinks like a fine cognac or brandy. With intense raisin, toffee and rum flavours it's best to sip and savour this one.
Pairs brilliantly with a cheese platter or sticky-date pudding.
