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.

on tap poured into an oversized wine glass a: dark amber beer, small head with very little retention minimal lacing s: dark fruit aroma of plum and raisin. light caramel t: similar in smell but with the addition of very light bitterness and hop presence. Alchohol shows up as it warms but is warm and inviting m&d: medium to full bodied, very drinkable for 7+ ABV.

Astrozombie (28) - Largo, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Belgian yest aroma with dark fruits and sour notes. Dark brown with light head. Taste is traditional abby style but somewhat flat. Easy to drink for a dark beer. Better than average but not amazing

slowrunner77 (3843) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
"A nice little beer for a good price, but not really a standout in the dubbel style. cloudy light brown, nice feel and fruity-malty-yeasty flavor and aroma, but nothing that wows."

Oscbert (1041) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 15, 2014
~Rich malty aroma of raisin, prune, caramel, bread, and alcohol. Clovey peppery spice from the yeast. ~ Pours a ruby amberish color with small wispy white head. ~Prune in flavor with raisin and carmel, spice and alcohol. ~medium light bodied with medium low CO2, lingering sweetness. ~ It’s ok. Was expecting more from a dubbel. feels a bit thin and isn’t all that interesting. Still drinkable and enjoyable

BlackHaddock (3797) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
12oz Bottle poured into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip on 14th July 2014 in Orange County while on holiday. Looked fine a red hue to the brown body, the head a nun staying off white colour. Fairly malty nose and taste bordering on sweet. The body seemed a little thin for the alcohol, but it suited the beer. Overall not bad, but a long way from what I am used too when I have a proper Belgian Abbey Dubbel.

Malty, sweet, and malty. Way too sweet for my taste. Has body but is flat and boring.

Bottle poured. Dark amber appearance with a light white head. Faintly sweet caramel aroma with faint floral hops. Surprisingly light body and thin, silky texture. Faintly sweet taste all the way through with hints of caramel.

Hazy dark amber with a medium light brown head. Malty aroma with hints of dried fruits and nuts. Silky smooth palate. Malt flavor with caramel, toffee, and dried fruits. Small aftertaste but a tasty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark amber with thin head nose with some malt. Hint of spicy hop in flavor but mostly malt... Not a great malt flavor.
