UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Reddish brown, nice full head. Malty caramel flavours although not very dominating. Some sugars but drier and less sweet than the similar types from Grimbergen and Leffe. Classical dubbel. 180893

MiP (14007) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2005
Bottle. Malty, sweet aroma, some brown sugar. Dark chestnut brown colour.Unstable, fizzy, bright head. Dry flavour, bordering on harsh, hint of malt and acidity. I prefer my dubbels sweeter.

Pailhead (5398) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2005
Bottle: Malty caramel, fruity, yeasty, and light alcohol aroma. Pours a transparent reddish-amber with a big creamy white head. Excellent retention. Very weak flavor. Light sweetness up front with a caramel, yeasty, and light fruit finish. Actually everything is light, the fruit is just lighter than everything else. Very thin and watery. Little carbonation. Not very impressive. Thank the aroma and appearance for bumping this above a 2.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 24, 2005
Pours slightly murky, brown in color, with thin beige head. Aroma mainly of caramel malt. Medium carbonation. Flavors of plum, caramel, and candy sugar. As it warms, some slight notes of vanilla. Not bad, but lacks complexity of some others in this style.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 19, 2005
(Bottled) Clear, dark amber color with a large, foamy and lacy head. Mild, caramely and slightly roasted-malty aroma. Malty flavor with herbs and some licorice, and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied, warming and sweetish palate with soft, foamy carbonation. A quite pleasant, herby dubbel. Nothing spectacular or very interesting, but enjoyable enough.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2005
Browncoloured beer. Aroma mainly of caramel. Sweetish taste, finishes quite bitter.A bit on the thin side. Decent dubbel, but has absolutely no character, it tastes good but really has nothing of its own.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2005
A first rate dubbel, with a fair amount of depth in flavor and palate. A world-class contender

radiomgb (2463) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2005
Bottle. Deep amber (almost brown) in colour. Aroma of light chocolate, caramel and brown sugar. The flavour was of light chocolate and caramel malt, some yeast, slightly sweet with some dark fruits. Lightish body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a light bittermess.

GilBier (75) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2005
Amber-brown color with cream colored head. Nose is malty, has hints of raisins and dark sugar. Also spices in the aroma and a slight bitterness. Taste is round, malty, light sweet, has hits of fruits and end with a round bitter accent.
