Thick beige head which stays all the way through the drinking process. Dark red/brown colour. Very harmonic bitterness, medium finish.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2006
330 ml bottle. Brownish ruby red colour with a thick creamy off-white head that clings to the glass. Yeasty aroma with sharp hop character. Quite a sharp aroma. Dish water. Highly carbonated. Leaves a lot of carbonation in the mouth. Quite dry flavours, only slightly sweet with some sweet syrup in the background. Subtle watery finish with surprisingly little sweetness and hoppiness.

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Pours dark brown with a thick, persistent beige head. Big aromas of clove and apricot, with a hint of hops. Rather flat, one-dimensional flavor of amber malt. More like a pale ale as it lacks the complexity typical of a dubbel. Full bodied, weak, metallic finish.

Christian (12698) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 Hazy dark red-brown with a lasting off-white head. Fruity malt aroma, spicy notes and a touch of banana. Sweet caramel flavour, with some hop bitterness and a touch of roasted malts.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2006
Chestnut brown, small head. Somewhat restrained aroma but a nice filling flavour.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - NOV 22, 2006
Abbey dobbel bought from Achel Kluis abbey store. Tasted this a couple of days ago and sadly cannot remember much of it. I do remember it was good, but as nothing much stuck on my mind, I have to assume it was quite generic.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Bottle... Cloudy, ruby ale with a mid-sized, frothy, khaki head. Everlasting retention. The nose is a cornucopia of all things weird; golden raisins, molasses, rye bread, rubbing alcohol and plastic bandage (phenols). Oddly, I sort of dig the smell. Flavor-wise, Iím not picking up much. Itís well-balanced, but thin for the style and the ABV. I expected more malt, I got less. I expected less hopping, I got more... or, at least, fresher hops (which is not necessarily a terrific thing when youíre talking dubbels or lambics). Medium-bodied and fizzy. Crisp, clean, finish. Sort of like Belgiumís answer to Americaís Michelob Dark, just as Stella Artois is Belgiumís answer to Americaís Miller Genuine Draft. I have no clue who sent this bottle to me, but step forward and Iíll throw some praise your way!

ALLOVATE (2874) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2006
Into a chalice at just on cool. Bright, polished chestnut body with minute streams of carbonation raising up a firm, dense pad of beige that laced rings down the glass. A little fresh turned topsoil in the aroma, as some bitter dark chocolate, nutmeg and cracked pepper, and weedy hops that give it character but donít exactly entice. Topsoil and weedy hops again in the mouth. Slight woody, dank cellar edge, mixed dried spices and slight dried fruit tang in back. Finish has a very subtle milk-chocolate sweetness, some bitter fruit tones and just a little warmth of alcohol, making it more alluring than the palate. Aftertaste included some írusty nailsí - best way to describe as it becomes quite metallic. Body is medium, quite creamy with the carbonation softening quickly. Slowly grows on you and the flavours do develop and fall into place. Unusual, not one Iíd yearn for but one Iíd atleast try again. Original!!! (33cL, 18/01/08, Intíl Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2006
Drank in a trappist glass. Beautifull dark caramel color. Nice smokey head. Aromas of cinnamon, cloves, a hint of apples, pears. Very nice floral aromas (hops). Alot of the aromas you can taste. Add a little caramel, raisins and a creamy overall feel to it. Good bitterness. Very good overall dubbel.

Bottle. Creamy off-white excellent fully lasting head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and very nice hoppy /spicey aroma. Light sweet flavor. Moderate botter long finish. Oily palate. Nice beer.
