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
Original Gravity: 16.8 Plato

jcr (2644) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Bottle. Brown/copper body with a short off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Mild aroma caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. No Belgian yeast characteristics. Taste of plastic and chemicals dominate resulting in no chance for the malts to come through (as they should in a dubbel). Slick and oily on tongue in the finish. Meh. Any good qualities? Not in this drain pour of a beer.

Very spicy with prominent dried fruit flavor and aroma. Enjoyable dubbel, slightly too much fruit for my liking ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle - pours a dark amber/brown with a slight head that coats the glass. The aroma is mostly sweet prune like malt but also a touch of rich biscuit and herbal notes. A mouthful is slightly thin yet layered with rich ripe fruit malts coupled with a tiny hint of pumpernickel.
