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

Tayeth (639) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2015
Bier riecht relativ malzbetont mit einem Hauch von Klebstoff. Der Geschmack ist relativ seicht: malzig mit etwas Asche im Hintergrund.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2016 Bottle. Reserved aroma. Medium carbonation. Rich, dark brown color. Slightly sweet. Lots of raisin and almond flavor. Makes me think Im drinking a carbonated wine. Sweet malt with almost no hop flavors. Very interesting beer. The antithesis of a hoppy IPA.

trapped (2957) - New York, TURKEY - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark amber with small light beige foamy head that disappeared immediately, slight roasted malt aroma, medium carbonation, mellow roasted malt taste, abrupt finish. Lacks the kick of an abbey dubbel!

malty, slight stone fruit aroma. dark red in color with no head. malty, slight cherry flavor - a little disappointed, as I usually really enjoy dubbels, but this one is a little off

Bork (455) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Well balanced flavors and high drinkability. Not one of the big Belgian classics, but this brew does not have to hide when they show up.

rjmc64 (36) - Deer Park, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Poured from bottle, medium brown with red highlights. Small head that faded quickly. Nose has fruity esters like fig and cherry as well as a slight yeasty smell. Medium mouthfeel. Flavors are very complex, raisin, and fig with a caramel backbone. Finishes mostly dry.
