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.

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.

Pretty nice. Good color, but not as much head as I’d prefer. Definitely not as much depth as a belgian brewed dubbel, or even one of the american breweries that specialize in belgian styles. Not a bad beer. A little lighter than the standard dubbel beer.

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.
