scarletfire65 (1272) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle at home. Reddish brown, huge fluffy cream colored head on the initial pour, recedes rather quickly. Aroma is raisins, sherry, ripe red plums, distant chocolate, a hint of phenol. The mouthfeel is spritzy and effervescent. Medium bodied. Lots of ripe red fruits. Also cooked fruit flavors. Slight oxidized flavor. Belgian yeast. Good spice palate. Slightly dry finish. Overall very good, drier than a lot of dubbels, not overloaded with candy sugars, and interesting fruitiness.

erickok (4913) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2016
Copper brown, large head. Sweet nose, cherry, filtered, sugar. Unexpected, not really Dubbel like almost, too fruity. But drinks okay, too filtered and quite sweet yet easy to finish the bottle. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

ciocanelu (833) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 7, 2016
Dark ruby color with beige head. Aroma has caramel, dark sugar and belgian yeast esters. Taste starts sweet and slightly acidic with dark sugar, molasses and dried dark fruits. Body is medium with a high amount of carbonation. Pretty decent dubbel overall but it doesn’t stand out in any way.

Roodbruin helder bier met beige schuimkraag die redelijk blijft staan. Weinig aroma. Ietsje fruitig en sprankelend in de mond. Smaak ebt snel weg.

Deze dubbel heeft een moutgeur. De smaak is karamelachtig, vermengd met wat hop. Het geheel is wat waterig. Prima, maar niet bijzonder.
