Style: Belgian Dubbels
- Belgian Dubbels are one of the strong, traditionally dark beers of Belgium and while they belong to the category of beers that are often referred to as Belgian Strong Ales, the Belgian Dubbel was popularized in mideval times by many of the Trappist and Abbey breweries that are still famous for brewing great beer.
The origins of the term Dubbel (and Tripel) is somewhat shrouded in mystery. Many ideas circulate that Dubbel refers to double to the amount of malt, or possibly even double fermentation. But a more likely story seems to be related to an old Belgian system of measuring gravity or the density of beer versus water. A typical beer might have a gravity of 4, but when some breweries began brewing beers from a gravity around 8, it was easy enough to call them "dubbel" beers. Beyond that, tripels were brewed from a gravity around 12.
