Brewed almost in my back yard, it seemed worth a try. Delicious with malt dominating. Hardly any bitterness. I am very new to craft beers. It is very differerent from anything I've tried. Yummy

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle

Pours clear maple brown, bit of lacing for a head.

Smells of molasses, candi sugar, biscuit and maple.

Flavor is of caramel, molasses, candi sugar, biscuit and banana.

Medium to full body, tingly carbonation on the tongue.

This beer looks nothing like a Belgian and smells overly sweet, but the taste is surprisingly not too far off. However it's not especially traditional. Decent, worth a try at least.

Nice caramel ruby color with excellent clarity. Head is grey-beige and 1 finger.

Aroma of a hot roast beef sandwich. I know that sounds weird, but it takes me back. Perhaps with Arby-Q sauce. Slight root beer barrel candy. Maybe some plum, I dunno. Roast beef sandwich is what's coming out the most.

The flavor contains a boozy burn right at the start, with hints of sarsaparilla, slightly plum, and tangerine gum. Lingering flavors of bubble gum-like yeast, slight molasses candy.

Painful carbonation in the belly, slight yeasty starch, slight drying alcohol.

Overall a very decent Dubbel. Not amazing, but definitely nothing to scoff at, and for $7.99 a six pack I'd have it again. Bought my single, probably will go back for more. Exceeded my expectations.

Nice Belgium style Dubbel with rich malty flavors of caramel, raisen, plum and spiced rum. Pours medium golden reddish brown with light lacy head.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: dark managing color with some nice ruby red and purple notes

S: raisins, plums, brown sugar, fig, toffee, and sweet caramel

T: brown sugar, plums, raisins upfront. Fig, caramel, and toffee behind that. A big bready malty backbone

M: lighter side of medium with high carbonation. A bit lighter of a mouthfeel than I like in the style

O: an alright representation of a Dubbel. Dark fruits take center stage, as they should. It’s a bit light in the mouthfeel though, it could use a bit more body. Still worth a try for sure

Should really have some Gregorian Chants playing while I experience this fine beer! Flying Fsh Abbey Dubbel is a Belgian Abbey style ale. It's strong and richly flavored, caramel with a touch of fruit at the finish, plum and raisin, I think. The head dissapated pretty quickly, and what was left didn't seem to lace at all. I may have to start buying beer in pairs.

Dark amber colored beer with a rapidly fading head. Taste is sweet with both nutty and dark fruit flavors. Very good beer that I am glad I gave a try!

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

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; best by 03-21-18.
A: Pours a crystal clear, light copper color with a one inch, light tan head, but low retention and little to no lacing.
S: Aromas of caramel, raisin, and cloves/spices.
T: Palate generally follows the nose, although also a banana flavor. Sweet to semidry with a bit of a cream soda feel. Only light bitterness, with a sense of spiciness.
M: Light to medium bodied with light carbonation.
O: Very enjoyable and seems like it would pair easily with a range of foods. A bit less complex than some European (and American) offering, but would certainly have it again.
