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.

Excellent color and clarity. Not much head though. Good taste and aroma. Sort of reminded me of a wheat beer. A decent beer but nothing special.

This tastes fine, but as a chocolatey dunkel. That’s frankly all that greets me - a rather friendly, shallow chocolate malt not at all offensive, but perhaps a bit vapid.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2003 nice beer, i'd have to agree with the last more of a bock or brown than a dubbel. underlying yeast character. Better the second time I tried it.

Malty, reminded me more of a bock than a dubbel. Tasty, fine beer, but not a particularly good example of the Dubbel style.

Tasted on tap. Medium brown color. Malty and slightly sweet. Complex flavors, raisins, fruit and spices. Reminiscent of typical Belgian Dubbel, but its not as sweet. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty and slightly sweet. Very nice beer.

Some flavors, but not enough. Maybe I’m trying to compare to the many Belgian and Abbaye dubbels I’ve had. A good domestic product, but could be improved... if the market supports the style. Give it a try!

Fruity and smooth. Oranges, lemons, and other citrus flavors are immediately emitted from the aroma. A good Belgium duffel that was nice to try, but not something that I would keep in the fridge too often.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2002
nice ruby red color with almost no head. GOod carbonation. A nice dubbel, good malt flavors and hops to balnace it , yet it still has the traditional spicyness of a good dubbel. Full body and flavor with a nece smooth aftertaste. A good all around belgian, but their are others that offer a little more complexity- like allagash

Although I’ve heard alot of good things about the Flying Fish brewery, my first taste from my first case purchase wasn’t overwhelming. I’ve had better Belgian Ales, this one tasting a bit hoppy. Nice aroma and palate, though.
