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 beer—it 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

PorterPounder (8169) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Ft, Lauderdale, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Murky dark brown pour, slight, but persistent eggshell colored head, light lacing. Aroma has some brief chocolate accents, some earthy peat-like notes. Chewy flavor with some light chocolate notes, some molasses sweetness, a hint of dates, touch of brown sugar in the back end. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Pretty decent.

fitwitchik (433) - Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle purchased on a brewery run thru Maryland and poured into a snifter reddish dark brown with minimal head. Aroma is malty with dark fruits. Flavor is mild for a dubbel. Quite Smooth.

CObiased (515) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2015
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.

Tayeth (667) - 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.

Dunkelrot, klar. Im Geruch leichte Anteile von Klebstoff. Im Geschmack dann weniger. Leicht restsüß, insgesamt rund.

callmemickey (4549) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2015
Dark brown body, medium sized light tan head, and soapy lacing. Rich caramel. dark fruits, some milk chocolate, and light earth. Medium to full bodied, gentle carbonation, moderate sweetness throughout.

retinadoc (240) - - MAR 23, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2016 Bottle. Reserved aroma. Medium carbonation. Rich, dark brown color. Slightly sweet. Lots of raisin and almond flavor. Makes me think I’m drinking a carbonated wine. Sweet malt with almost no hop flavors. Very interesting beer. The antithesis of a hoppy IPA.

3.2
trapped (3367) - 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!

BlindGuardianco (90) - - MAR 8, 2015
Advertised as Abbey dubbel but then the description says Brown ale, nice amber beer with %7.2 so a bit boozie, nice drinkable beer with a kick,

2.6
ffaoe (828) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2015
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
