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.

I don't know if this reached the complexity they describe in the commercial description, but this is another solid brew from Flying Fish. Brownish ruby in color with a diminishing head, this dubbel is surprisingly drinkable at 7.3%. Better as it warms, but good throughout from the fruity start to the malty middle and the crisp finish.

This one pours a nice, clear, reddish brown color with a small, off-white head that does not last. The aroma is malty with some light bread notes, yeasty doughiness, and hints of banana and vanilla. Medium body with medium carbonation, the flavor is is malty sweet with touches of banana and caramel. The finish is slightly dry with a touch of nuttiness. A solid Belgian style double.

There is a lot I liked about this dubbel. Very nice ruby appearance and decent aroma. Tastes like they used a good yeast strain that added to its Belgian style characteristics. Enjoyed the subtleties in this beer.

Thin head but dissiapates very slowly. Heavy malt and fruit aroma,Sweet complicated, smooth flavor.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2005 A nice beer, but it really doesn’t seem like a double to me. Not a bad beer, but not a real double.

Reddish amber pour with a thin tan head. Malty and medium-bodied. Slight fruit undertones.

Definitely not my cup of tea. I like the other Flying Fish brews that I've tried, but I don't like this style of beer at all.

Had this on tap at the Grey Lodge Pub in Phila. Nice beer. I can't really say anything else that Reverend just before already said.

this dubbel pured to a really nice brownishish amber color with a nice frothy head that quickly dissappeared. Malty aroma with a hint of fruit. Taste wise this didn't quite measure up to a true dubbel. A good try it just seemed to be missing something. Maybe a little too thin in body for his style.

Thanks to dberger624 for this fine Dubbel. Pours a deep ruby/amber with a thin light beige head (no retention). Minimal lacing. Aroma of malt, and brown sugar toward the end. Flavor was somewhat strong, predominantly malty but with a nut and cherry presence as well. Finish was slightly flat but it did not detract from the beer much at all. I am not an expert on the style but I didn't think this was too bad at all.
