Dark Strong Ale – Old Abbey Ales

From Old Abbey Ales the new brewery on the block in Abbotsford comes their “Dark Strong Ale”.  The beer pours a deep almost ruby brown colour with a light brown head.  The aroma consists of dark fruits, candied sugar and a sweet toffee finish.  The flavour was of dark fruits, candied sugar, bananas, sweetness and an earthy finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 9% and an IBU of 26.  This is a solid beer to be launching a brewery with with a ton of flavour and a fairly smooth finish for a 9% beer.  I look forward to when the bottle conditioned beers start to arrive in stores.
