COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starr Hill’s Taste of Honey Belgian-Style Dubbel is our rendition of the classic Belgian Dubbel in which we substitute wildflower honey from our friends at Hungry Hill Farm in Shipman, Virginia, in place of the traditional Belgian candi sugar. Dark fruit and spicy aromatics from Belgian Abbey yeast meld nicely with caramel and toffee flavors from Munich and chocolate malts. Taste of Honey has a medium body and just enough bitterness for balance.

Aroma of honey, and dubbel effervescence. Tastes like a dubbel with addition of honey sweetness. Goes down way too easy for a 8.5pct abv beer. Really good and really easy drinking.

Jesterdeal (1814) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle shared by Taylor. Aroma is malt and coffee cake. Pours light brown with a big white fizzy head. Taste is pleasant with cider donut, dark fruit, and slight honey. Pleasant sweet malty mouthfeel without being sticky and overwhelming. Reminds me of the Barbar.

JDBaker11058 (1223) - Maryland, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Appearance: very cloudy medium brown, with a short-lived tan head. Aroma: brown sugar, spicy yeast, floral honey, molasses, toffee, raisin, sweet vinous undertone. Taste: smoothly sweet, with raisin, brown sugar, molasses, candi sugar, honeyed graham crackers, clove, and a hint of booze. Finish: sweet, lingering honey and yeasty notes. Notes: Pretty darn good, actually. A nice sipper for an evening of poker. The honey blends seamlessly into the traditional belgian dubbel style. Well done.

TheBeerGod (5184) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle. Dark copper with a medium, foamy tan head. Strong yeast and spice notes atop dark fruit and candi sugar. Toasted malt, candi sugar, ripened dark fruits, yeast and caramel round out the flavor profile. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more candi sugar, dark fruit, toasted malt, sweet malt, caramel, yeast and softer spice notes. Yummy!

Beerathon (1111) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Sweet taste of honey, plus the typical Abbey Dubbel flavors are there. Seems a bit under carbonated, but other than that decent.

Sniffer at Raleigh Times. Good aroma sweet. Malty. Caramel bready. Mild yeasty. Tad jazzed brownish Orange. O.k. head. Minor lace. Sweet flavor. Thick body. Creamy slick mouthfeel. Sweet finish. Nice interesting addition with the honey.

Butters (3736) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bomber. Hazy brown pour with faint ring of clearish white head. Very pleasant notes of bread of plum and candi sugar. Dark stone fruits and hints of rum. Caramel sweetness on the finish. This is actually pretty nicely done for the style imho. Very pleasantly surprised with this one.

Cybercat (3226) - Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Pours an opaque dark mahogany/chestnut with a fairly thick light buff head. Malty aroma has toffee, woody and honey notes enhancing it. Flavor has a malty and slightly woody core that supports honey, toffee and subtle banana notes. Texture is about average on the fizz and viscosity departments. Taste this, honey!

Actually rather liked this Dubbel. I was in the mood for a beer, and it was around. Dry in style. Not much sweetness leftover in comparison to some of the really fruity style Dubbels. Dark fruit and a medium body. Good carbonation level. Tasty brew. Would recommend and have again.
