Ommegang Abbey Ale

Top 10 Winter Beers

Ommegang Abbey Ale from Cooperstown, New York


Ommegang Abbey Ale
Dubbel - New York / Year-Round
8.2 percent ABV

Brewery Ommegang is located on a 135-acre former hop farm near Cooperstown, New York, the epicenter of American hop production in the 19th century. Typical for the farmstead style, this flagship brew pours a dark red with prevailing aromas of raisins, plums and dates. Clove, sweet malt and caramel flavors help to mask the beer's hefty 8.2 percent ABV. Like its Belgian cousins, it boasts a generous selection of spices — in this case licorice root, star anise, orange peel, coriander and cumin. A great candidate for cellaring, this ale will develop caramel, fig and currant notes with age.

Price: $8 for 750 ml
