bubbleflubber (2156) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Spiced-nut toffee nose. Beautiful pour of deep red amber; great thick tannish head and wonderful retention and lace. There is an alcoholic spice upfront (of cinammon/ginger/heavy allspice), some peppered caramel malt and yeast in the mid-palate, and some light spice hops to the pull’s end, leaving with an astringent finish. There is a thin, slick mouthfeel to the brew. There does soom to be a large alcohol note to this beer overall (easily could be misidentified due to heavy cinammon/allspice contingency), but overall, a decent offering.

Bottle. A dark brown pour with a small diminishing head. A malty, sweet chocolate aroma. The taste has more chocolate malts with some honey. A nice bitter chocolate finish. Average carbonation. Very nice.

750ml 1.5 years old. Spicy sweet aroma. Pours cloudy reddish brown. Spices and fruits along with lots of alcohol for a 7% beer. At first got better as it warmed, then became somewhat astringent an too yeasty.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Bottle dated 26 07 03 and had an older looking all black label. The top of the 750 mL bottle exploded off and poured a murky dark mahagany with a lot of carbonation and a head that consisted on large bubbles and fell rather quickly leaving within a minute a completely flat beer. From aroma to flavor to mouthfeel to finish this beer very much reminds me of a cheap table red wine. It is very dry and winey with a crisp tartness. Acidity and astringency are very high and the finish is that of freshly chewed grape skins. Very faint caramel and that fact that I am sitting right next to the bottle it came out of are the only things keeping me from forgetting that I am drinking a beer. Some light fruit flavors also shine through though strawberry isn’t something I get much from beer and a hint of dark cherries finds it way. Either this bottle way very improperly stored are this beer should not be kept for three years.

bb (8452) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 12, 2006
Bottle. Dark ruby-brown beer with a light tan head. Rich malty aroma with some dried fruit and yeasty spice. Yeasty flavor without the rich malt I would have thought. Sweet with some spice. Light raisins, caramel, and brown sugar. Body is a bit thin

DuffMan (9472) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2006
I thought this was an excellent dubbel. Dark orange amber, hazy, big pillowy head. Aromas of brown sugar, undefined fruit, and something woody or nutty. Interesting palate-- sweet spice and caramel, some yeast, and an interesting licorice note in the finish that I really liked. Shared with Tyler Durden.

Sten (735) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAY 24, 2006
A dark ruby coloured beer with a firm, slightly brown head. A sweet, chocolade aroma. The flavour is sweet and malty, with some spices at the end. The flavour ends slightly dry. (Bottle 33cl)
