got a six of the dubbel as a gift that rekindled my experience with the bourbon in 2008. i could’nt forget that celery salt flavor even after i got tanked. i think the combination hit it off for me.

On tap for Flying Fish Mad Monday. Pour is a deep blackish amber. Zero head and lacing. Aroma and taste is exploding with vintage oaky woods, butter, figs, raisins, burnt caramel, dark fruits and vanilla. Insanely smooth drinkability for an abbey dubbel. I like this better then prior 8 and Westmalle’s dubbel. Worthy of the silver it received at the 2008 GABF and hands down the best FF beer I have had. Amazing

Aroma of bourbon and caramel. Pours dark brown but not thick with no head. Tastes of bourbon, sour malt, and sugary. This was surprising and delicious!

I love this brew. Poured dark amber with a creamy tan head. Aroma of bourbon and plum. Mellow bourbon flavor with some fruit in the finish.

2008 GABF. Bourbon nose, cloudy golden medium body and mouthfeel. Caramel and vanilla in flavor. Medium finish. Quite tasty.

A great Belgian ale for those who can tell. The yeast is particularly strong and sweet.

BillWyce (729) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2008
On draft at Grey Lodge 7/08, served in a pint glass. Cloudy, dark amber with minimal head. Nice bourbon aroma. Was quite sweet at first, giving way to a lingering pleasant bourbon aftertaste. Overall, a very nice job.

On draft at the GL.  Pours a cloudy amber with a tiny light beige head.  Appears almost flatlike.  Aroma of light bourbon notes, caramel and sour vanilla oak.  Taste of light bourbon, vanilla oak and caramel.  Has a slightly sour finish.  Very nice done and not overdone with the bourbon.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Draft @ Grey Lodge. Pours a pulpy orange-brown color with golden edges; thin off-white head with patchy, fine-bubbled lacing. Solid amounts of slightly tart citrus, grapefruit, and sour-mash bourbon notes; pulpy fruits, citrusy bourbon, and a touch of toasty brown sugar. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lots of lively, zesty citrus and grapefruit upfront, surrounding lightly chewy, toasty oak and bourbon; soft bourbon, light abbey dubbel presence underneath (brown sugar, breadiness), and just a really nice, zesty grapefruit and apple presence throughout; really enjoyable; not immensely heavy, just very nicely drinkable. Lengthy finish: breadiness, toasty malts, cereal, and a touch of soft brown sugar.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 Deep dark brown with medium brown head. Aroma is VERY bourbon even at arm’s length. Taste is similarly bourbony and sweet with dark fruits and slightly tannic oaky notes. Far and away my favorite FF beer so far. $7/13oz
