COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starting with this naturally pure Abitibi Esker water, Mons Abbey Dubbel is brewed with passion and devotion to time-honored Belgian tradition from a blend of Pilsen, Munich and Carafa malts, with Styrian Gold hops for bitterness and Hallertau Hersbrücker hops for aroma, finished with spices, such as licorice, anise and bitter orange peel.

Appearance: clear cola red/brown with a short loose light beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: dark fruit, molasses and brown sugar, liquorice, citrus and spices. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-low bitter, light tart. (7/10) Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, off-dry slightly sticky and spicy warming finish. (4/5) Aromas of raisins and figs heavily sweetened with brown sugar, and the taste follows, but it’s not so sweet as to become sickly. The moderate sustained carbonation probably helps there, and although it finishes a little sticky, it never becomes mouth-coating or cloying. Spicy and citrus flavours come through mostly in the finish, which is also the only indication of the fairly high ABV. Not the greatest Abbey Dubbel I’ve had, but definitely solid - and hard, if not impossible, to beat for the very reasonable price. (14/20)

czar (7525) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
pours unclear brown, mahogany tint, with a very nice reviving light beige head, creamy lacing. lots of grapes, roasted peppery berries, plums, very fruity and spicy belgian yeast, trappist-like; lots of spices - aniseed mostly; very chalky, lots of abitibian minerals. bright carbonation, light body - even at 8 per cent abv; semi-sweet yet drying spicy-peppery finish. very nice woodsy dubbel. almost a vinous character. star anise-driven. another very pleasant mons surprise.

mathieuc (3254) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Bottle bought at SAQ under the name L’Amoszus. Pours a darker brown with a small beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of dark fruits and caramel. Taste is of dark fruits, caramel, licorice. Moderately sweet. Body is medium-full, carbonation moderate and the alcohol shows a little. A little sticky. A more than fair dubbel, I didn’t expect as much!

Une bière avec un gout prononcé de réglisse de caramel. Un caractère très puissant.

LouisP (173) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016
Bouteille 750 ml Couleur : Brune foncée, faible carbonation et faible effervescence. Arômes : Subtil, on croit reconnaître la senteur des boissons gazeuses au nez, me rappelant le Dr Pepper! C’est assez fruité également, allant chercher des tons de myrtilles ou de mûres. Goût : La saveur me rappelle curieusement encore une fois le Dr Pepper en version alcoolisé. On goût le côté carbonisé de la boisson gazeuse, ainsi qu’un certain côté fruité. Appréciation : C’est loin d’être mal fait. Profil de saveur intéressant, mais il manque de complexité pour que je considère cette bière comme l’une des meilleures de son style.

On tap at beerbistro. Rather faint aroma of raisins, toffee and caramel. Smells very sweet, and it is indeed. Flavour profile is typical for a dubbel. Very smooth. Lingering licorice and sweet orange flavours.

RhetoricalAns (837) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2016
Favorite from the three from the brewery. Cola brown pour with a thin to medium rocky light tan head. Lovely malt forward aroma, caramel, molasses, some dark fruit. Decently sweet taste, heavier somewhat syrupy body, though the carbonation cuts through well.

UM02 (354) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2015
Molasses and caramel foretaste with some fruitiness and raisin in the body. Complex with some nice depth but a little bit too sweet for my taste. A much more interesting beer than their whitbier though.

Helsdon (351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2015
Coke brown with cloud, off-white head reducing to a ring. Very fruity nose of apple, prunes and a little tomato. Sweet taste, again fruit heavy, dried raisins and prunes with mild caramel malts. Fairly clean finish, just a little barely-there bitter, molasses and prunes.

Stoned99 (1156) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
750ml bottle shared with dad and drank outside on this cold autumn day. Aroma: caramel, molasses, nutmeg, candied sugar and even a bit of licorice. App: brown with medium frothy moka head and awesome retention. nice lacing too. Taste and palate: full body, creamy, medium sweetness, sweet finish. Overall: not bad on this cold day in the woods. Not something that enjoy that much but still well done.
