Dubbel beers were first brewed by Trappist monks in the abbey of Westmalle in 1856, as a darker and stronger version of the other abbey beers of the time. They became popular after the Second World War and are imitated all over the world to this day. However, it is only the true Belgian dubbels such as St Bernadus Prior 8 that retain the understated bitterness, fairly heavy body, pronounced fruitiness and cereal character of the original pioneering drink.
