A- Cloudy cola colored body with an off-white head that does not leave much lacing.

S- Belgian yeast and spices come through first. There is a sweet nutty hazelnut malt note, maple syrup is noticeable, along with a sweet dried fruit aroma.

T- Sweet and fruity right off the bat. There is a strong raisin taste initially, followed by a medium toasted malt taste and finishes with a sweet maple syrup flavor.

M- Creamy with medium-low carbonation. The finish leaves a sweet residue across the palate.

O- Had this on tap at the brewery and wasn't thrilled, but the bottled version is very good. A lot of complex flavors in an American Dubbel.

Big sautéed dark fruits on top of cheesecake topped with maple vanilla syrup. Thats exactly what this smells like.

Muddy brown in appearance with a light tan head. No speakable lacing, but loads of carbonation.

In the flavor, there are tons of plums, over-ripe grilled peaches, raisins, molasses, and pumpernickel bread. Loads of carbonation are also present in the mouthfeel making it very effervescent. with a thick kind of syrupy tasting but not feeling body. No alcohol in the taste, but I can feel it only after a few sips. Today is going to be a good day.

I had a couple of twelve ounce pours of this at the Amsterdam Ale House in Manhattan's Upper WEst Side. Dubbel's are not my favorite style but as far as they go I liked this one.

Appearance is a dark/medium brown. Light brown head, about a finger's worth and some lacing left behind.

Aroma was of figs/dates. Some dark biscuit.

Flavor was a little on the sweet side but pretty complex overall. Fruit, malt, yeast.

Overall a pretty good dubbel.

3.4/5  rDev -6.6%

Racked on: April '12
Slow pour into a standard pint glass.

A: It poured to about half-a-finger of fizzy, dark khaki head that disapated quickly. The brew is a dark copper color and opaque.

S: The aroma is mild. There is just a little sweet molassas and a bit of sweet dark roasted malt.

T: The taste is sweet molassas and dark rosted malt blended with a Belgian yeast funkiness.

M: It is smooth with a body that is medium to light.

O: A good Belgian double, but nothing that really stands out. The molassas sweetness combined with the Belgian yeast funk just did not work for me.

Beer served in a snifter, beer is brown and hazy with a lazy head of small tan bubbles, no lacing, moderate retention.

Aroma is yeasty, Belgian, sweet.

Beer is a little cloying, a little boozy, a little yeasty. Not the best dubbel by a long shot and I don't get any syrup but not a horrible beer in the long run. Just an average one.

A very deep ruby red or dark brown in color, pretty much opaque with a two finger tan head on top that sticks around for awhile. Hints of apple and fig in the initial aroma, followed by a lot of darker cereal grainy aromas from the malt. This is rounded out by a hint of that 7.6% ABV on the nose. The dark fruit aroma is very nice and balances well with the grains.

The taste is equally well rounded and fairly sweet, not being overly dry and letting the flavors of apple, cherry and even a touch of mango mingle with a lightly peppery tingle. Darker dried fruits and apricots also find a home here, making for a complex and juicy taste with an easy drinking medium body. Certainly Belgian in nature, with the yeasty character that is understated, but somehow makes the beer what it is. The alcohol flavor is muted by the fruits and counteracted more so by the peppery taste light hop profile. Incredibly smooth on the palate, but has a small kick in the end, a touch of dryness with that finish that lingers on until the next sip.

Almost too sweet, but the peppery and floral hop flavors save it in the end. Just a touch more heat from the alcohol wouldn't do any harm to this one either. Those things said, this is a really nice and well-balanced brew that demands your attention if you see it. Flying Dog has never really steered me wrong.

4.03/5  rDev +10.7%

On tap at World of Beer at North Hills

A - brownish caramel; soft, offwhite head; great retention

S - caramel, faintly sweet

T - alcohol up front, caramel, faint fruit, a bit sugary

M - medium bodied, smooth, a bit crisp

This is a decent Dubbel. It has solid flavor and good drinkability. The alcohol is a bit forward but not overwhelming. It's a decent representation of the style and worth trying.

On tap at Churchkey in DC for $2.50 for a 4 oz.
What a great summer beer find! Refreshing. Elderberries, fruit and brown sugar! The color is a fun deep reddish purple. Not much carbonation. It's like no other beer I have had so far and I have had many fruit beers. It's my first elderberry beer.
