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.

shonobiwan (213) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a slightly hazy burgundy color with no head and no lacing. It appeared that there was no carbonation. Aroma was that of malt, dark fruit, fig and wild raisins. Taste was very mild but had all the notes of fig and raisin. The ABVs were well hidden and the carbonation was just right at the end of the sip. Not a bad brew by Flying Fish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 19, 2013
12oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium chestnut brown with a small (less than 1 finger) off white frothy head that quickly diminished, leaving behind a light scattered film and having fair spotty lacing.

The aroma had a bold fruity ester (raisons and prunes) right off the bat along with a dark bread malt and a musty Belgian yeast with a touch of brown sugar and a mild vinous scent.

The taste was malty sweet with a slight yeast presence from the start and pretty much was the case throughout, with the finish being rather fruity and mildly tart with light alcohol presence at the end. The flavor faded quickly off the taste buds with just a hint of dried fruit and a mild alcohol warming sensation left behind.

Mouthfeel was almost medium in body with a mildly dry texture and a prickly carbonation.

Overall this was a very enjoyable yet mild Dubbel, with an avid aroma and a somewhat subdued yeast intensity in the flavor... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Rustyham (1732) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Deep dark brown hue, very opaque. Aroma is sweet deep dark musk and flowers. Falvor is much saltier than expected, more like an old ale than a dobbel, and also deep than a dubbel. Very good, especially if present as soemtihng other than a dubbel.

PhillyCraft (3445) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle, hazy amber pour with tiny head that didn’t stick around for long. Aromas and flavor are fruity malts, spicy yeast, Belgian funk, brown sugar, rust and some dark fruit flavors. Dont think this was old but had some oxidized notes. Lighter body for a Belgian dubbel. Another average or slightly below offering from FF.
