Biere Abbaye de Forest 33cl
The name of the beer refers to the Benedictine Abbaye de Forest that existed from 1106 until 1764, when the abbey was destroyed by a fire. Also, there is a cheese maker from Thoricourt (a small town near to the brewery), who produces a 'beer cheese' using Silly's very-own Abbaye de Forest.
At 8.0% ABV the brune is reasonably high in alcohol yet this is barely noticeable due to the abundance of flavour. Excellent malt aromas are lifted on a breeze of alcohol with a slight hint of coconut and caramel. Thick and chewy in the mouth with malty caramel, boiled sweets and malt whisky notes. A long, dry and slightly bitter finish completes this supremely smooth and drinkable amber coloured ale.
