FLYING FISH ABBEY DUBBEL

On tap at Biggie’s, updated version of brewers’ most popular ale (newly labeled and stylistically bettering similarly-named ’06 precursor, Belgian Style Dubbel) places spicy brown-sugared dried fruiting alongside caramelized chocolate malting. Molasses-dipped dried cherry, fig, raisin and date sweetness gains peaty respite as well as subdued chestnut, banana bread and toffee notions.

TRAPPISTES ROCHEFORT ALE 6

Steadfast burgundy whiff and ester-y grape dryness inform sour plum-prune-fig opening of intriguing hazy copper abbey ale. Heavy molasses creaminess cloaks tropical papaya, pineapple, and banana sweetness and mocha-doused anise illusion, leaving fruitcake trail. In deep recess, vinous apple tartness, port-rum variance, and whiskey-soaked cherry nuance cuddle up.
