Just started dabbling with the abbey dubbel and it is fantastic. Been drinking Smithwicks, Killians, the oktoberfests and winter lagers and the flying fish abbey has been the best i have tasted. I've tried a lot of the darker microbrews but nothing can touch the abbey.

From the first pour of the deep brown liquid that forms a long-lasting tan head to the last swallow, this beer comes as close to perfection as any American beer I have tried. Opening the cap reveals a fruity aroma, which is followed by a wonderous first sip. Both sweet and bitter at the same time, caramel, dates, and biscuit flavors come forward. The brew finishes long and clean, though a little thin in the mouth. Biggest drawback is that it does not go well with snack foods.

Presentation - Though I have a Flying Fish pint glass, this offering from same company called for a Chimay goblet

Appearance - Dark ruby red, head does not last long and I see no lacing

Smell - Like yeast and fruit, with a little bit of sugar

Taste - Follows the smell

Mouthfeel - Lighter and less complex version of the style, a good intro dubbel

Drinkability - Delivers really well, probably one of the most sessionable dubbels

Overall - A great intro to the style, and hey, I am supporting local beers

Color & clarity are as expected.
I really like the tast of this beer it has the malty spicy notes expected from the style but with a lightness that makes it easier to drink.
Perhaps more carbonated than expected, but still with good body.
Overall, a satisfying dubbel that begs you to have another.

This beer poured out beautifully. A perfectly clear copper brown color with a big white head. The smell is right on with a nice sourness and spiced fruit character. Pleasant sweetness from the malt. The hops blend well because I can barely detect them ( or much bitterness for that matter ).This is one of the most drinkable beers I have had in this style. Very good and one to look out for.

A great, and under-rated beer from Flying Fish. I have had this on multiple occasions, and I think it's one of the most drinkable doubles I've had. Maybe because the ABV isn't so "extreme". Just great, complex flavor, body, and feel.

It tastes similar to Unibroue La Terrible to me, which is a quad, that for some reason is much more highly rated, and priced.
