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.

Bottle poured into glass. Hardly any head, no lacing. Very clear. Amber color. Spiciness overpowers maltiness. Some dark fruit in aroma and flavor. No chocolate.

12oz bottle - pours a dark amber/brown with a slight head that coats the glass. The aroma is mostly sweet prune like malt but also a touch of rich biscuit and herbal notes. A mouthful is slightly thin yet layered with rich ripe fruit malts coupled with a tiny hint of pumpernickel.

Tayeth (490) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2015
Bier riecht relativ malzbetont mit einem Hauch von Klebstoff. Der Geschmack ist relativ seicht: malzig mit etwas Asche im Hintergrund.

trapped (1367) - New York, TURKEY - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark amber with small light beige foamy head that disappeared immediately, slight roasted malt aroma, medium carbonation, mellow roasted malt taste, abrupt finish. Lacks the kick of an abbey dubbel!

Advertised as Abbey dubbel but then the description says Brown ale, nice amber beer with %7.2 so a bit boozie, nice drinkable beer with a kick,

ffaoe (332) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2015
malty, slight stone fruit aroma. dark red in color with no head. malty, slight cherry flavor - a little disappointed, as I usually really enjoy dubbels, but this one is a little off

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Well balanced flavors and high drinkability. Not one of the big Belgian classics, but this brew does not have to hide when they show up.

rjmc64 (35) - Deer Park, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Poured from bottle, medium brown with red highlights. Small head that faded quickly. Nose has fruity esters like fig and cherry as well as a slight yeasty smell. Medium mouthfeel. Flavors are very complex, raisin, and fig with a caramel backbone. Finishes mostly dry.
