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.

Masterful dubbel, ironically found at Premier. A fascinating change up for a sourfest. Dark brown with a substantial bubbly head. Well malted withs spice and dark malt and grapey in the secondary and building on multiple samples. A nice sweetness. Recommended for Belgian fans.

Thanks to gregclow for sharing. Deep amber-brown pour with a thin tan head. The nose is fruity and a little bit chewy. Nice pear, stewed prune, raisin and plum. A touch of soft clove and a bit of lingering fruitiness as well. Soft berries and some nice fruitiness. A little bit subtle with respect to the overall impression.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
2014-02-28. Dark brown body with a nice beige head. 3++ Aroma of moderate alcohol character, light fruit, dark sugary notes. Flavour is pleasant, malty dark fruit and sugars. Light fruit and sugar with a light mineral quality in the finish. Average plus bodied palate, carbonation. Enjoyable but doesn’t quite come together to my tastes. Bottle shared by GregClow

Bomber from Surdyk’s. Deep purple brown pour with a creamy head. Dark fruit, dark wine, some yeast. Very tasty.

Rastacouere (6128) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2013
A large beige head with uniform tight and small bubbles settles above the dark brown. Gently vinous, very fruity, a bit spicy and minimally earthy, caramelized ale with little complexity. It is also fairly thin in mouth for a beer of its magnitude and surprisingly sparse in carbonation which obviously accentuates its already considerable sweetness. Spices do chime in a little, adding relief to the finish from which the hops remain in the background to say the least, but they are never a truly major concern. Relatively intense, but limited flavour profile with a big focus on the fruit - juicy grape jelly especially. It makes for a decent ale with higher pretentions, but in any grocery store where you can find this beer at a reasonable price level, you’ll have a Trois Pistoles right beside that seems like a better bargain.

750ml bottle shared by gregclow with me, blankboy, jercraigs, mabel and joemcphee. Deep but clear ruby, huge slightly diminishing beige foamy head. Sharp and dry, light caramel roast. Taste - like a very light Belgian brown - not sharp and dry, not boozy, not much of anything - I liked the blonde better. Light body, airy, quick-finishing - ehh.

blankboy (6045) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
[Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, JoeMcPhee, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o GregClow] Pours a deep amber with a large lasting fizzy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, with dark fruit, yeast and caramel malt. Flavour is sweet, too sweet for me -- it’s yeasty and fruity along with some light spices. Medium bodied. Decently made, it’s just not my thing.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear deep brown color ale with a large brown color head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light fruity ester with some candi sugar and light dry raisins notes. Taste is also dominated by light dry raisins notes with candi sugar and light fruity ester. Malt backbone is pretty solid with some caramelized malt with a light spicy yeasty finish. Body is pretty full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Pretty solid rendition of the style.

obguthr (3827) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Raisin nose with light prune and oatmeal notes. Dark brown, medium tan head. Raisin and plum flavor, less pruney, little breadcrust at midpalate. Subtle smoke and charred oak finish. Good transitions, nice intensity without being a hot mess.
