Abtsolution Dark Belgian Ale

Abtsolution Dark Belgian Ale is a fine sipping beer

The name is a play on the word absolution, a word meaning the formal forgiveness of sins; the extra letter "t" is for the Abt abbreviation for Belgian quadruple dark ale, a style known for its deep fruity notes. 

Although it's brewed and bottled at De Proefbrouwerij in Belgium, this collaboration between Belgian brewer Dirk Naudts of De Proefbrouwerij and Daniel Carey of the Wisconsin-based New Glarus Brewing uses American ingredients: Santiam and Chinook hops, which add pine and spice notes, and lactose derived from local Wisconsin cows to impart extra mouthfeel and sweetness. The beer is aged in both French and American oak, which lends a complexity and velvety smooth palate. This ale can be enjoyed now, but if you have the patience to wait, it will evolve beautifully over the next one to two years.
