IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Medium brown, big rocky head. Aroma of dark fruits and malt. Flavor is fairly sweet, dark fruit again, plum, malty. Medium to full body. Nice.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
Medium nut brown. Rocky head. Aroma shows plum, apple, dark rye bread, metals, phenols. Palate has a rough-edged yeastiness, and honey-sweet caramel malts. Nuts and wood appear as well. Not very cohesive, but I’m always tough on dubbels.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2005 Bottle
Slightly hazy. Aroma of dark fruits (raisins et al)and apples. Might be slighly off and will need another rating. A bit hars and chemical. Best before two years ahead.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Best before 11/16/02, pours muddy brown with a huge light brown head that leaves a sticky lacing in my glass. Fruity, yeasty aromas, caramel, chocolate, cherry and plum flavors. Medium to full bodied finishes with a funky sourness. Not what I expected, don’t think I would buy another bottle.

larsniclas (5550) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2004
Bottled. Drak amber. Yeasty aroma. Rather lively. Spicy flavour with long bitterness.

LarsHolmer (112) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2004
Copper coloured with a nice foamy head, quite a competative brew among the Belgian Dubbels. Lots of fruit in the nose and a toffee-bitter finish. Almost like a Westmalle.

Sassy (217) - Mullet Capital of the World, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2004
Great find for under $8 a six pack -- and readily available here in Chattanooga! Aroma and flavor is of vanilla, raisins, caramel, and chocolate.

omhper (19218) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2004
Bottled. Ruby colour, coarse head. Aroma of solvent and plastics. Sweetish with notes of almond. Hard, clean malt profile. Artificial lacquer-like finish. has dropped from a wonderful beer to near undrinkable liquid in a few years :-( Could this have something to do with the new owners?

rlgk (10091) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2004
Nice amber color with a quite attractive brownish head. Aroma brings plum and vanilla, but also something strong and spicy. Flavor is fruity from grapes and apples. Some pepper.
