Brewed close to my home in northwestern Québec, this beer is a source of regional pride for us Abitibiens. That being said, I have to say that although I really do enjoy a glass of Abbey Dubbel, it is very yeasty and it will probably please fans of Belgian brews. It has some surprising and refreshing fruity aromas and it goes well with meaty comfort foods.

Bottle: Poured a clear deep brown color ale with a large brown color head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light fruity ester with some candi sugar and light dry raisins notes. Taste is also dominated by light dry raisins notes with candi sugar and light fruity ester. Malt backbone is pretty solid with some caramelized malt with a light spicy yeasty finish. Body is pretty full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Pretty solid rendition of the style.

Masterful dubbel, ironically found at Premier. A fascinating change up for a sourfest. Dark brown with a substantial bubbly head. Well malted withs spice and dark malt and grapey in the secondary and building on multiple samples. A nice sweetness. Recommended for Belgian fans.

On the way home from hockey game and looking for a nice beer to accomodate a good night's sleep after a hard fought game:

Into my chalice:

A: jet black colored body with a film of an off-white head that lasted for most of the beer. The body was too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. No lacing whatsoever.

S: centered around sugars, yes, sugars and not malts, very aggressive in my nose.

T: same aroma flavors yet brought in a very slightly hoppiness in the maltiness, hard to describe, interesting, yeasty

M: medium with a very nice smoothness to it that leads anyone who at least in my opinion may not be a dubbel drinker that would love how this feels on your tongue.

O: ok, how long has this beer been out on the market, just curious why someone like me is the first one to review it, no worries. I will say this, though I'm not much of a fan of true "dubbels" this one stuck with me and helped me sleep like a baby after my hockey game on Tuesday. Well done, Brasserie Belgh Brasse!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice deep hazy brown color to it. It has a nice beige head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of dark fruit (raisins and grapes), Belgian candi sugar, brown sugar, some spices and yeast.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet dark fruit, alot of Belgian candi sugar, some sweet brown sugar, molasses, faint spices and yeast.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

750ml corked bottled into a wicked weed snifter.

Pours a dark brownish red color with a very big foamy white head that quickly dissipates. The smell is very sweet...candied sugar. The tasty is bready...candy sugar again...very yeasty. extremely sweet. Not offensive though. Solid flavor. medium bodied with medium-high carbonation.

overall i dig it. nothing out of this world but just solid. recommended.

Poured into a snifter at the Prytania Park Hotel, New Orleans

A: Caramel brown with a nice tan one-finger head that lasted. Frothy lacing.

S: Belgian yeast dominates, followed by candied sugar, dark fruits (dates, raisins, figs) and chocolate.

T: Follows nose to a T. Smooth, sweet, sensual. Tangy. A yeasty aftertaste.

M: Medium with medium, frothy carbonation.

O: Glad I finally found this Canadian brew. A great abbey ale that should be shared.

Bottle shared by Steve, 750ml bottle into a tulip.

Dark brown, with mahogany hues. Thin mocha head with decent retention and lacing. Spicy nose, clove, grape, slight anise, light brown sugar and molasses. Taste has more grape, spice, brown sugar, dark fruits. Medium full feel, with a gentle medium carbonation. A very well done dubbel, I'd revisit this in an instant.

From a 750 ml bottle into a chalice

Pours a nice dark brown/ruby with a low one finger head that gives way to some nice swirls and mists of foam.

The smell is dark fruits and esters with some yeast coming forward.

The taste follows the smell...dark fruits and yeasty. Molasses comes through a little.

The carbonation is medium and the body is full.

Overall, I am quite impressed with this beer. I'm more of a tripel and quad fan, but this is a nice beer. I love finding beers like this. I had no expectations and I am finishing my beer a happy man. A good beer at a very good price point.

4.25/5  rDev +10.1%

From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle. Sampled on August 21, 2014.

A darker brown colored pour leads up to a lingering tan or beige head that is silky and soft.

There are red grapes on that nose. Along with Belgian toasted biscuit, yeast, candied sugar, and some light spice.

Medium or better body.

The flavor echoes the aroma with a definite fruity character ala grapes, orange, or cherry. But other than that I get the typical Belgian toasted biscuit and malt characters I would expect from a Dubbel, with a tad more punch that makes me think Quad. Some light hop finale. Enjoyable.
