COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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
Hops: Styrian Golding

Advertised as Abbey dubbel but then the description says Brown ale, nice amber beer with %7.2 so a bit boozie, nice drinkable beer with a kick,

Well balanced flavors and high drinkability. Not one of the big Belgian classics, but this brew does not have to hide when they show up.

Poured from bottle, medium brown with red highlights. Small head that faded quickly. Nose has fruity esters like fig and cherry as well as a slight yeasty smell. Medium mouthfeel. Flavors are very complex, raisin, and fig with a caramel backbone. Finishes mostly dry.

skmikeg (1753) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pours a copper-chestnut brown with a one finger tan head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, sweet malts, rains, bread pudding, coco, ripe fruits, and some yeast. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-full body with a semi creamy, mostly sweet, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice dubbel that would be a nice dessert beer.

Dark brown with a light tan head. Not a lot on the aroma, bit of brown sugar and fruit. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice depth of flavor with the malt, some dried fruit, brown sugar, toast, biscuit. Good stuff.
