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.

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.
