Trappist Dubbel

Dubbels are one of the oldest beer styles in Belgium, a beer whose history is found in the monasteries of the Middle Ages. The “modern” adaptation of the style came together in the early 1800s. One of the first things drinkers notice about a Dubbel is the deep brown color. Belgian Candi Sugar gives the beer its dark color, along with flavors for caramel, raisin, and dried figs. Dubbels provide drinkers with a complex flavor mix of rich malts, fruit, spice and gentle bitterness while weighing in at a respectable 6-7.5% ABV. The light spiciness is contributed by the yeast during fermentation; additional spices 
were traditionally not added.
