Belgian Dubbels have a rich dark fruit profile from the Special B malts and the Belgian Yeast. One great compliment to this is to toss a cinnamon stick or two into the primary or secondary fermentor during aging. A touch of cinnamon adds a interesting complexity to the beer that enhances the overall experience.
I really love Pork dishes. I also love Belgian Beers. Naturally I combined the two in a recipe for Belgian Strong Glazed Pork Chops - but feel free to use a Dubbel, you'll get a very similar flavor addition during the cooking process!
