Brouwerij Westmalle ABV: 7%No journey into the decadent world of dubbels is complete without Westmalleâ€™s iconic ale. Since the brothers boosted the original brown aleâ€™s potency in 1926, it has inspired legions of imitators. Many are good, but few are better than this ruddy-brown malt bomb that creamily sashays across your palate. Thereâ€™s a nose of nuts, raisins, and bananas, which jibe well with rich, indulgent flavors of caramel and malt. One important note: the dubbel matures differently in the larger 750-ml bottle. The aftertaste is slightly subtler.
Brouwerij Corsendonk ABV: 7.5%Founded in the late fourteenth century, northern Belgiumâ€™s Priory of Corsendonk once contained a sizable brewery, which cranked out beer from the 1600s until the priory was shut down by the Austrian emperor Joseph II in 1784. Fast-forward 200 years, and Corsendonk beers were once again being producedâ€”minus the monks. Nonetheless, youâ€™ll find monastery- influenced releases that include the dubbel-style Abbey Brown Ale. The lively ruby release has a spicy nose and tastes of brown sugar and toasted bread chunked with dried plums and raisins. Itâ€™s delightful.
