COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This clean, malty ale has a robust flavor with fruity, plum aromas. The carbonation balances the moderate sweetness from the malt, resulting in a dry and smooth finish. It pairs great with savory foods like barbecue, rich stews, grilled meats, and dark chocolate cake.

Draft. The look is cloudy, beige colored head, and has a bright orange color. The smell is caramel, sweet, fruits, sugar, yeast, and decent. The taste is similar to the smell but with the alcohol coming through.

Sampled on 10/11/12 at GABF. This abbey dubbel pours a light to yellow gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with a touch of yeast. A medium bodied dubbel. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. A touch yeasty. Seems to be missing some of the mouthfeel and sweetness one kin of expects in a dubbel. Still the flavors are very nice, they just seems muted. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Aroma is malt forward with sweet dried fruit being the predominant fragrance and hints of caramel. Pours a beautiful reddish copper with a long lasting off-white head and minimal lacing. Taste is medium sweet with notes of dark dried fruit, and caramel. There some nutty/alcohol notes in the finish. Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation and a medium lasting aftertaste. Overall, I liked this Dubbel. Nice work Adelbert.

Bottle:   Caramel, a little dirty and thick, moderate frothy sandy head, little lacing.   Barnish nose, in a musty whole wheat sense.   Sweet breadiness on the tongue, not heavy, a little whole wheat, musty fig, and nutty caramel.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not too deep or rich for a Dubbel.   Finishes quick, bready, witih some lingering nut and fig notes.   Not a big example, could be richer and heavier... or should I say, needs to be richer and heavier.   Fairly clean tho.   Happy it only gushed a little when I opened it.   Thanks for this one Bill!

Murky light brown color with fleeting head. Herbal, minty, spicy, rootbeer aromas. Toffee, milked up herbal tea flavors with rootbeeer spices--decent

A gift from friend Paul B; Thanks! Poured at a good temperature with a nice, thick, light tan colored, foamy head that lasts for a while and some lace. Color is a clear, dark honey amber with loads of bubble trails. Aroma is caramel, toffee, malt, yeast, wine, spice. Flavorís like nose and has carbonic tang up front followed by sweet then the flavors and bitter. Also has circus peanuts, and cloves. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, fairly long and a hint of alcohol warmth.

bomber to glass; been awhile since I had a dubbel - this one looks different - lighter than most - orange amber hue with white head. I didnít get a lot of aroma - slight citrus and spice. nice med. palate. Taste was that of a dubbel - solid; has a slightly dry finish. solid brew; my first from Adelberts

25 oz. Bottle. Great dubbel! Light citrus scent with bread, plum, and malt. Deep copper pour with a frothy head, carbo loaded! Light/med body. Spice fronted taste with a bready molasses middle and big malt aftertaste. Loved it!

Not quite as good as their tripel but still mighty tasty. Caramel and raisin aroma. Taste is similar with some peppery notes.
