Enjoy the beer that you deserve.
This rich, malty ale is pale amber in color, is medium to full-bodied, is moderate to high in alcohol content, and benefits from aging for a longer time than most ales.
The Dubbel style is part of the Belgian Trappist and Abbey-style tradition of ales. Though it literally means 'double', it is not exactly twice as strong as other Belgian Trappist and Abbey ales but it certainly is higher in alcoholic strength.
The Dubbel style originated at monasteries in the Middle Ages. After the Napoleonic era ended, which did feature some unkind treatment of monasteries, the style was revived in the mid-1800's. By Belgian law, a Trappist beer must be brewed at one of the six recognized Trappist monasteries. Therefore, homebrewed and non-Trappist versions should be called Abbey-style ales.
