Winner of the silver medal at the 2008 Great American Beer Festival, this Belgian-style Abbey Dubbel is an exceptionally complex beer with many interwoven flavors. This classic-style Abbey beer features an immense head with a fruity nose and a generous body. Malty in the middle, the beer features a clean, almondy dry finish and a slight alcohol warmth. More like a wine than a beer—it has a lot of the qualities of a fine Burgundy.

Beer writer Michael Jackson has praised the Flying Fish Dubbel as “a wonderful example of the style.”

Malts: Two-Row Pale, Munich, Special B, Chocolate, Demerera Sugar

12oz bottle - pours a dark amber/brown with a slight head that coats the glass. The aroma is mostly sweet prune like malt but also a touch of rich biscuit and herbal notes. A mouthful is slightly thin yet layered with rich ripe fruit malts coupled with a tiny hint of pumpernickel.

Bier riecht relativ malzbetont mit einem Hauch von Klebstoff. Der Geschmack ist relativ seicht: malzig mit etwas Asche im Hintergrund.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2016 Bottle. Reserved aroma. Medium carbonation. Rich, dark brown color. Slightly sweet. Lots of raisin and almond flavor. Makes me think I’m drinking a carbonated wine. Sweet malt with almost no hop flavors. Very interesting beer. The antithesis of a hoppy IPA.
