Dark complexion, hinting to a deeper roasted flavor than one might think for the style. Syrupy, fruit sweetness in the middle, bitter end.

12oz bottle. Thanks to umich03jm. Decided to open this up in the middle of the night, couldn’t get to sleep (hopefully this helps). Very dark red, nearly black color. Surprisingly dark. Thin slightly bubbly khaki head. Some short ropes and dots of lace. Big raisin plum fruity flavor. Kind of spicy. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Some oxidization type flavor. Light to moderate sweet, slight bite at the end. Medium to bigger body. Kind of crisp, sort of smooth, lighter carbonation. Light drying finish. A little rough around the edges but not bad overall. Ended up finishing it alright. Decent American dubbel, delivers the ABV without much fuss

From a 12 oz bottle shared at the Beer Head BBQ in Falls Church VA. Pours a clear dark copper with an ecru head. Toasted nut aroma. Flavors of caramel. Smooth finish.

Pours a deep dark brown. Aromas of sweet bread and Belgian yeast. Taste is Belgian yeast, sugar candy, wood and alcohol. Palate lingers with a nice subtle bitterness. Overall a wonderful beer, nice and balanced. Well done Corner.

Little to no head on the pour. Slight smell of plumb, a little molasses. Smooth with a slight bitterness on the finish. Lingers a bit.

On tap. Dark brown without much head. Mild but sweet aroma. Flavor is a bit sour with notes of raisins and plums. Crisp with a slightly sharp mix of carbonation and alcohol at the end.

Dark reddish brown ale. Has a sweet malty taste similar to lighter colored Belgian ales. Delicious.

bhensonb (10908) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle from bu11zeye! Pours dark brown with a tannish head. Warm aromas of dark fruits - plums and dates. Full bodied, except the carb left quickly and it thinned rapidly. It’s oddly sour, with darkish fruit and some yeast/spice. A bit oaky? It’s definitely dry. No issue with heat. A different dubbel, but quite nice.

superspak (2543) - Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 12 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger fairly dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, banana, prune, clove, pepper, molasses, toast, caramel, candi sugar, dark bread, and earthy yeast spiciness. Nice aromas with good complexity and balance of malt, fruity, and spicy ester notes; fairly strong on the spicy and earthiness. Taste of raisin, prune, banana, molasses, toast, caramel, clove, pepper, dark bread, candi sugar, and earthy yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of dark fruit, banana, molasses, toast, clove, pepper, caramel, dark bread, candi sugar, and earthy yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of malt, dark fruit, and spicy ester flavors; with good complexity and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly slick, earthy, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good dubbel style. Nice complexity and balance of flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.
