COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This clean, malty ale has a robust flavor with fruity, plum aromas. The carbonation balances the moderate sweetness from the malt, resulting in a dry and smooth finish. It pairs great with savory foods like barbecue, rich stews, grilled meats, and dark chocolate cake.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of bu11zeye. Pours a clean deep copper with a lacing off-white head. Explosive cork but didnít gush. Sweet caramellish nose, some overripe fruit notes. Rich body of sweet overripe fruit, a little rustic and oxidized, but pleasantly so. Some warming alcohol. A nice Belgian, but nowhere near a Dubbel in style. 250113

beastmaster (331) - Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle. More malt than hop flavors, a little unbalanced. Very carbonated, but I didn?t lose the cork when I unwound (unlike their hippo). Batch 2 bottle 2724. Bottled 3/30/12 opened 1/3/13. Better than the hippo, good beer but not great. I expect more complexity in taste. Aroma is good (best rating), appearance cloudy but thats expected when there is yeast in the bottle. 13 overall.

Out of the bottle: very well carbonated. Lots of Belgian yeasty notes on the nose. However, these donít carry over to the taste, and I get a lot of roasty flavors - and maybe some root beer - that I donít usually taste in a dubbel.

Draft. The look is cloudy, beige colored head, and has a bright orange color. The smell is caramel, sweet, fruits, sugar, yeast, and decent. The taste is similar to the smell but with the alcohol coming through.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Sampled on 10/11/12 at GABF. This abbey dubbel pours a light to yellow gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with a touch of yeast. A medium bodied dubbel. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. A touch yeasty. Seems to be missing some of the mouthfeel and sweetness one kin of expects in a dubbel. Still the flavors are very nice, they just seems muted. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Aroma is malt forward with sweet dried fruit being the predominant fragrance and hints of caramel. Pours a beautiful reddish copper with a long lasting off-white head and minimal lacing. Taste is medium sweet with notes of dark dried fruit, and caramel. There some nutty/alcohol notes in the finish. Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation and a medium lasting aftertaste. Overall, I liked this Dubbel. Nice work Adelbert.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle:   Caramel, a little dirty and thick, moderate frothy sandy head, little lacing.   Barnish nose, in a musty whole wheat sense.   Sweet breadiness on the tongue, not heavy, a little whole wheat, musty fig, and nutty caramel.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not too deep or rich for a Dubbel.   Finishes quick, bready, witih some lingering nut and fig notes.   Not a big example, could be richer and heavier... or should I say, needs to be richer and heavier.   Fairly clean tho.   Happy it only gushed a little when I opened it.   Thanks for this one Bill!
