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 (4700) - 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.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Transparent burgandy/amber, disappearing small near white head. Powerful astringent alcohol aromas (scotch, vodka) conceal most everything else. Hints of chocolate, caramel, malt, champagne grapes. Flavots of malt, milk chocolate, nutiness, overcome quickly by alcohol finish.
