COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. The beer is bottle-conditioned.

Bottle poured into glass. Hardly any head, no lacing. Very clear. Amber color. Spiciness overpowers maltiness. Some dark fruit in aroma and flavor. No chocolate.

fiercepanda (504) - Missouri, USA - AUG 7, 2013
A clear reddish beer with a small white head. The aroma is belgian yeast, fruit, and spices. The flavor is a similar profile with the addition of some nuttiness.

Bottle. Dark amber with some copperish tints around the edges. No head. Nose is nutty with hints of candy sugar and cherry. Taste adds earthy yeast and spice. Palate is a little thin. Decent but doesn't quite get there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheJester (1775) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2013
355 mL bottle. Different label than the one shown. Pretty typical in colour, with not much head. Smells a little sweet, with the typical dried fruit, molasses, some earthiness. Pretty good, actually. The flavour is much more muddled; almost one dimensional. Sweet, dried fruit. Not that it’s bad; the aroma just got my hopes up.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 Poured from a cold bottle into a glass. Pours a nice amber color with a short lived white head. Fruity aroma, nice smooth initial taste, light bitterness, good drink ability. Overall a nice beer.

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Poured a finger of head on a deep amber colored body. The aroma is a sharp caramel, barnyardish and dark fruits. The taste is grainy, caramel and mild dry bitter finish. It has a watery beginning. The texture is fairly smooth with low to moderate carbonation. It’s a fine ale but it could use a bit more in the flavor profile.

kuphish (380) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Another one from EC. Hazy, amber body with a thin head. Rich plum aroma with some peach, cinnamon, and allspice. Nice flavor of pitted fruit. Aforementioned spices and cherry are also present. Some clove and brown sugar round it out. Light body with fun, spritzy carbonation. Crisp finish with hints of fruit and spice. Nice beer!

Good American interpretation of the Belgian Abbey style. Complex flavors abound. Nice!
