A Belgian Dubbel, a style that originated in the monasteries in the Middle Ages. This beer is rich, malty and raisiny with a touch of caramel flavor. Being one of our bigger beers this should be enjoyed in moderation.

I must have gotten a good bottle joe because this beer was nice... sweet and spiced appropriately yet in moderation with the perfect refreshing yet provacative abv. almost on the light side so refreshing and burnt orange in color my nutella and sesame bread from espositos on 9th av nyc melded perfectly with this brew. nice abbey aroma. a winner with its own light hhhmm almond essence.

Bottle courtesy of yobdoog. Thanks! Pours amber with short lived wispy head. Smell is fruity, gummy and caramel malts and a touch of belgian yeast. Taste is fruity, nutty, and lightly of caramelized raisins. Faint yeast flavor, which I like and a bit light and crisp. Almost refreshing, I’d say. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, and the flavor is slightly watery, which is probably why I prefer this to any other dubbels I can think of. Nice beer.

JoeMcPhee (9051) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2009
Deep brown ruby-tinted beer. White, fast fading head. Aroma is lightly malty wiht a bit of soft spiciness. There is a touch of orange peel as well as a lot of green apple acetaldehyde. Flavour is fairly sour with a pronounced tartness that I can really say I enjoy. There is a bit of light brown sugar and a touch of yeasty spice, but nothing terribly complex. Lightly garbage smelling and quite unpleasant rotten finish. This stuff is a damn mess.

This beer although decent is not in league with other dubbels. Flavor pales in comparison to true belgians and similar craft beers.

I liked this beer. It had a really nice smoothness that made it very easy to drink. Unlike some Beligains I’ve had this beer was more about the malt then the yeast flavor. It was a real tasty brew.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2009
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of raisins, brown sugar, light dark ripe fruits, light burn caramel, plums, alcohol, and a bit of nuts. Poured copper/amber/orange in color with a small off-white head that lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Cloudy. Not sparkling. Full of small, medium, and large-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malts, cocoa, raisin, resin, tobacco, caramel, and light roasting. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, malty, nutty finish is on the dry side.

malrubius (2321) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 6, 2009
12 ounce bottle in Chimay glass. Reddish amber with quickly disappearing head. Toasted caramel sweet cherries and wood aroma. Toasted caramel flavor with raisin sweet fruitiness some earthiness and mild tobacco bitter finish that lingers. Medium body and medium low carbo. Nothing great about it. Not especially complex. Ordinary American red ale mouthfeel. But, nothing terribly offensive about it either. About as plain as you could possibly make a dubbel without ruining it.

Bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Thanks for sharing this one, Eugene. Pours a murky light caramel brown with a thin beige skin. It smells much like fermenting fruit (just short of rotting) with a round, sweet malt backing. Medium-bodied and finely-grainy with a slightly sour transition to a drying finish. Lightly nutty malt, apple peel and a dry, "green" finish. Meh. This is not a great dubbel.
