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.

Re-rate: Didn’t have a great head, but a very strong floral aroma, full bodied, nice balance, good malt flavors, very crisp, smooth, could tell from the taste that it had a bit more alcohol, very good dubbel

A nice beer, but not comparable to a Belgian benchmark. Flavorful and tasty on its own. Definitely a worthwhile drink.

Nice head. Great dark amber color. Caramel malt and almost a nuttiness like a nut-brown ale comes through. Still a very drinkable beer.

Jake Barnes (456) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2002
Once again the note applies that this comes down towards the end of the Real Ale Fest and my ratings get a bit shaky. I found this kind of boring and not really much of a dubbel.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2003 Rich color - short lived head. Nice rich yeasty flavor with a somewhat hoppy finish. Cleaner tasting than I would have expected - little sugary aftertaste. A solid dubbel.

fraternie (814) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2002
Seemed to resemble a brown ale more than a dubbel...caramel malt with a thin body but lacking the champagney feel that is typical in Belgian ales. Balance was average.

Not their best effort. Has a medium brown hue and is rather clean looking for being bottle conditioned. Aroma has aome nutty maltiness as well as faint hops and acohol (finally this head cold is breaking). Rather thin for a dubbel very little head to speak of and a rather soapy taste. Try the porter or the Farmhouse Summer Ale.
