High & Mighty Beer Co. – St. Hubbins Abbey Dubbel

Poured a clear darkish amber in color with a foamy white head that produced some lacing on the glass. Aroma is fairly strong of floral hops… not really any of the Belgian yeastiness that I expected… Is this not supposed to be a Dubbel? Wow… even the flavor is much more reminiscent of a hoppy beer, like a bitter ale. There are, however, at least some elements of the Belgian Dubbel it is supposed to be… faint hint of coriander (mostly in the finish) and bitter orange (just adds to the hoppy bitterness). Finish is lingering and bitter. While I am not, at all, disappointed with this beer… I really *do* like a hoppy beer, it was not at all what I expected for a beer called an “Abbey Dubbel”… Had they had called it an ESB (Extra Special Bitter), it would have been much more accurate, I think… I enjoyed this beer…
