Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MDDMD on 03-25-2014

Rich but gentle malt takes the lead, ahead of noble hops with their delicate spice notes in this mahogany hued ale. Ancient in origin, the abbey dubbel was all but lost until revived during the Napoleonic era. Today it has become the quintessential Belgian style.

22oz bottle tasted

A — Pours a deep ruby hue into the glass, almost leathery, cream colored head leaves behind some spotty lace.

S — Smells heavily of yeast, very much yeast forward, chewy dark fruit notes and leather character as well.

T  — Tastes of raisins, plums, chewy and slightly tannic, large malt balance, yeast dominates again.

M — Medium-Full bodied, rich, long and lingering finish.

O — Pretty good overall, would love a greater depth of flavor. (477 characters)
