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.

bhensonb (11137) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Bottle from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Pours dark amber with a foamy beige head. Warm malt aromas. Med body or more. Flavor is caramel. There’s a bit of hop flavor, and it’s more dry than not, but it is not at all bitter. That said, it rather fits the style, tho I think it could be taken for a doppelbock. There is a touch of chocolate eventually. But I’ll go with it being a dubble. I like a little more flavor variation - the complexity is clearly too subtle for me - but I’ma gonna drink it.

12oz bottle-pours a rich dissipating off white head and amber color. Aroma is sweet medium malt-molasses, spice, yeast. Taste is lots of sweet medium malt-molasses, peat, spice-hops, yeast. Nice, easy drinking, interesting interpretation of the style. Has a dopplebock character. OK carbonation.
