A Great Winter Beer

I am currently sipping a new (to me) beer, from one of my favorite breweries in my second-favorite state, The New Belgium Brewing Company of Fort Collins, Colorado.

The brew is called "Abbey" and is a double ale. It has all kinds of wintery overtones (spices and coffee in particular). Still, it has a light bouquet and is much easier to drink than other dark beers (of which I am fond).

I have only ever had the excellent Fat Tire from New Belgium. I think next time, I'll try a Trippel.

Highly recommended.

I have finally settled on Dos Eqques Amber as my favorite beer with Michelob Amber a close second. They are strong but smooth brews and I love that taste.
Don't much care for Shiner Bok but Ziegen is ok.

For some reason, I'm not that crazy about Fat Tire, although I realize I'm probably in the minority here. It seems too bitter and light, if that makes sense. (I do like their packaging - the bike I mean).

I'm guessing that Costco or Trader Joe's would carry the Abbey brew, I'll look for it next time I'm out shopping. Thanks for the rec.
