COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Winner of the silver medal at the 2008 Great American Beer Festival, 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 beerit has a lot of the qualities of a fine Burgundy.

Beer writer Michael Jackson has praised the Flying Fish Dubbel as a wonderful example of the style.

Malts: Two-Row Pale, Munich, Special B, Chocolate, Demerera Sugar
Hops: Styrian Golding
Yeast: Belgian Abbey Ale

On tap at Philadelphia International. Ruby dark in the glass. Nose is malty sweet. Palate is all Belgian. Sweet malty goodness. Syrupy. Not cloying. Not as complex as I hoped, but decently balanced to style beer.

Pretty generic for the style, taste is about what youd expect. Some banana and clove, honey malt, and I get a bit of bubblegum too. Not great, but certainly drinkable. And only $8.99 for a six pack; you wont find too many Dubbels for that price.

Pours dark ruby with a light off white head, not quite tan, the aroma is candy, spicy, dark fruits like figs. The flavor is sweet with fig, candy, dark candy, spices, clove and some banana. Overall, nice balance alcohol is found in back end. Qould drink.again.

Very good aroma and flavor. Has a sort of grainy Barleywine nose to it. Belgian candy taste and pretty strong alcohol scent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kerenmk (4361) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Alexei and Raphaelas. Thanks Trapped. Headless clear brown. A little roasty, some burnt caramel aroma. Sweet burnt caramel taste. Fizzy, light-bodied, a little alcoholic finish. Feels amateurish.

Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear red-brown, quick off white head, light lacing and slight retention. Aroma caramel and raisin. Taste is sweet, slightly sour. Medium body, moderate carbonation, soupy mouth feel. Finishes long. Tasting notes of raisin, brown sugar, toffee, licorice, allspice and bread. Not as sour as Id like but a solid, interesting take on a Dubbel.

Dark chestnut colored beer with a thin off white head that disappears immediately. Nose of brown sugar, stewed prunes, and toffee. Flavor starts with a surprising nutty almond flavor that gives way to raisins, caramel, and a subtle sourness. Finishing with a mild bitterness, this is a tasty beer.
