COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starting with this naturally pure Abitibi Esker water, Mons Abbey Dubbel is brewed with passion and devotion to time-honored Belgian tradition from a blend of Pilsen, Munich and Carafa malts, with Styrian Gold hops for bitterness and Hallertau Hersbrücker hops for aroma, finished with spices, such as licorice, anise and bitter orange peel.

Masterful dubbel, ironically found at Premier. A fascinating change up for a sourfest. Dark brown with a substantial bubbly head. Well malted withs spice and dark malt and grapey in the secondary and building on multiple samples. A nice sweetness. Recommended for Belgian fans.

2014-02-28. Dark brown body with a nice beige head. 3++ Aroma of moderate alcohol character, light fruit, dark sugary notes. Flavour is pleasant, malty dark fruit and sugars. Light fruit and sugar with a light mineral quality in the finish. Average plus bodied palate, carbonation. Enjoyable but doesn’t quite come together to my tastes. Bottle shared by GregClow

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2017
My Bottom Line:
This sweetish Dubbel aligns raisins and caramel under coriander and licorice for a rich, desserty example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam quickly recedes to a ring atop the deep brown haze.
-Mouthfeel is sugary and prickly.
-Flavor profile also evokes vanilla and sasparilla.
-Drinkability is lower than the usual Dubbel’s.
-Alcohol is well hidden.

Bottle.

[6204-20140228] Bottle. Grainy seawater aroma. Clear, dark red body with a huge long-lasting foamy light tan head. Boozy lightly toasted fruit grain malt flavour. Full body is quite smooth. Good. (7/4/7/4/14) 3.6

JoeMcPhee (9549) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Thanks to gregclow for sharing. Deep amber-brown pour with a thin tan head. The nose is fruity and a little bit chewy. Nice pear, stewed prune, raisin and plum. A touch of soft clove and a bit of lingering fruitiness as well. Soft berries and some nice fruitiness. A little bit subtle with respect to the overall impression.

czar (9412) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
pours unclear brown, mahogany tint, with a very nice reviving light beige head, creamy lacing. lots of grapes, roasted peppery berries, plums, very fruity and spicy belgian yeast, trappist-like; lots of spices - aniseed mostly; very chalky, lots of abitibian minerals. bright carbonation, light body - even at 8 per cent abv; semi-sweet yet drying spicy-peppery finish. very nice woodsy dubbel. almost a vinous character. star anise-driven. another very pleasant mons surprise.
