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

Dark red to brown color, sweet aroma, and a strong somewhat sweet flavor. A very tasty beer.

Dark brown in color with a pleasent aroma with coffee and malty hints. Tastes of caramel and malt with some spices. Nice beer.

Bottle. Poured dark mahogany color with garnet highlights in the light and a thick off white head that settled slowly and left nice lacing. Aroma is rich and appealing, molasses, coffee, figs and yeasty sweetness. Flavor is nice, sweet and fruity, chocolate notes, spice and a lingering dry finish. A pleasant treat tonight!

Poured a nice light brown with a thick fizzy gead that didn't last. Aroma was mildy sweet with caramel and brown sugar. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Nuts, caramel, spices, and earth tones on the tongue. Not exactly what I'd consider a good abbey dubbel, nevertheless, it was a decent beer.

On Tap. This is a good Abbey Double. Fruity, caramel, and sweet flavors. Finishes smooth, clean, and dry.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2004
On tap. Dark red, little or no carbonation. Seemed to have some apple aroma/flavor which I don't like.

Deep copper with a malty, fruity-spicy aroma. Hints of spice and raisins with a warming alcohol feel, though not strong. A bit easier to drink than expected.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2004 For the price, a really good interpretation of the style. You can easily pick up a six pack for like 7 bucks. Very complex with fruity notes and many other enjoyable flavors. The high ABV is an added bonus. Beautiful, dark brown color. Plus, its from Jersey. JERSEY!

rabuc (143) - carlisle, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2004
a good looking dubbel beer with a dark brew and long lasting head. the aroma was a distinct fruity/spicey smell. the flavor had the classic belgian/abbey flavor which is hard to describe other than a spicey/fruity/nutty semblance.

2.8
harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2004
Pours a reddish brown color, with a big craggy head. The aroma is sweet and tangy, mouthfeel is slightly thin with a kind of watery finish. Has some nice candy and toffee flavors. Not really what I would consider true to the style but a nice try.
