Originating at monasteries in the Middle Ages, trappist ales were brewed by to feed the community, and also to sell to fund church works. They were revived in the mid-1800s and since become a sought-after favorite. Our Belgian dubbel (“double”) has a deep reddish brown color. This moderately strong, complex Belgian ale has low bitterness, a full body, and hints of stone fruits like plum in the flavor and aroma from the dark candi syrup. This ale is a treat for the senses, and perfect to age and enjoy.

I aged this beer with white wine and a medium toast and 1lb of fresh raspberries and it was incredible. Would absolutely order again and again.
This was my first attempt at a Dubbel, and the end result was really wonderful. I used Wyeast 3787 starting it at 64 and letting it go to 75, and I cold crashed down to 33 for a week or so which was slightly different from the instructions. The tasting at the bottling bucket was wonderful with the right aromas and zero off flavors. I primed it with belgian candi sugar as opposed to yeast or dextrose. I would definitely try this again... might be fun to split the batch between 1214 vs 3787. We'll see next time.
Easy to brew but long. 90 min last and 90 min boil. Can't say much more yet. It's still fermenting.
