Malty slightly sweet aroma. Taste is malty with a sweet finish as well as a soapy bitterness to the finish. Not a great example of an Abbey dubbel. It is drinkable if given for free, but I wouldn't order it again. Low carbonation and pretty flat. That detracts from the beer, but really doesn't have great flavors either (mostly the soapy finish that really kills it) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear warm gold with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. The aroma is grainy malt. The flavor is grainy malt followed by some mild-moderate bitterness. Dries out on the palate at the finish as well. Perhaps this bottle is mislabeled, because there is nothing reminiscent of an abbey dubbel in this bottle. Disappointing.

Brief head on this light brown ale is fueled by a deep effervescence. Floaral-citrus hops in the nose, followed by a pleasingly full bodied ale. Surprised to see this is classified as an abbey dubbel - it reminds me more of an IPA than the official one on tap. On second taste, it has more of a fruity note characteristic of red fruits than an ipa would have. Substantially smoother than an Ipa as well, its not wuite as hoppy. This could stand for a nice New York take on the dubble style. Would also make a very fine choice for a session beer. On tap at the brewpub in Glens Falls.

On draft at Davidson Brothers in Glens Falls, NY, poured into a pint glass. Hazy amber pour with a decent, but fleeting white-ish head. Malty with some fruits and toffee, sweet malts and a touch of hops. Very drinkable.

Taste was pretty weak, very smooth, hints of caramel, tasted more like an amber than a dubbel. Still, not too bad, and very drinkable

Draught into a pint glass. Don’t think they knew this guy was a dubbel. Anyway it was a pretty ambery brown color. Little head. Dark fruits and malts. Similar taste. Decent.

A - Pours a slightly hazy copper-red color with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head reduces down to a thin ring around the glass leaving behind spots of lacing on the glass. S - The aroma is full of rich sweet caramel malts. There also some nice fruity esters and a touch of floral hops. T - Starts off with some fruit flavors (apricot and touch of cherry). Some sweet caramel malts and just a touch of ho pin the background. Through the middle some deeper lightly toasted malt flavor comes through. The finish is a blend of some fruit esters and some sweet caramel malt that lingers nicely. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and crisp, though just a touch watery and oily. There is a hint of alcohol warming in the finish which is nice. D - Very drinkable. Nice blend of fruit flavors and malt. Fairly well balanced. Goes down nice and smooth.
