New Belgium Brewing Company Abbey Belgian Style Ale

A dubbel style ale from New Belgium out of Fort Collins, Colorado. 

This 7.0% ABV beer pours medium to dark brown, translucent.  The aroma is very yeast forward, with a strong banana component, sweet, almost like the circus peanut candy.  The taste is also very yeasty, with strong banana, a bit sweet, but also a roasted malt taste.  Anyone who likes the banana yeast flavor will love this beer.  Unfortunately, it is not a flavor I like.  However, there is enough roasted malt on the back to make it just drinkable for me.
