Une mousse beige moyennement généreuse dessinant une fine dentelle se dresse sur un liquide brun aux reflets acajou. Des arômes de sucre brun et de malt légèrement rôti me viennent en tête lorsque je plonge mon nez dans le verre. Ces mêmes impressions se retrouvent en bouche, combinées à des traces de fruits confits. J’aurais aimé qu’elle soit un peu plus costaude et liquoreuse, avec un peu plus de corps, mais n’empêche qu’elle est bien représentative du style.

Earthy banana, plum. Roasted malt, nutty, raisin, tart, dry sour finish. Interesting take on a Belgian brew, the alcohol gets a bit erosive on the palate though.

glennmastrange (2666) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Tap. Moderate roasted fo the malt, light herbs for the hops, light to moderate yeast note of barnyard, with wood, faint spice and dried fruit. Head is large, rocky, light tan with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Colo is dark red/brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes slightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick, with a soft carbonation and has a dry finish. Nothing bowls you over in the Abbey Dubbel, and it may not be so true to style, but it’s got a hint of wildness in it and is real easy drinking.

rodenbach99 (4209) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place. Un calice avec un liquide à la robe brune qui ne mousse pas. Le nez est agréable tout en malt avec du chocolat. C’est sucré. La bouche est sucrée, chocolatée. Cette bière a peu de caractère, elle n’est pas assez épicée à mon goût. Le caractère de la levure est peu présent. Elle manque un peu d’atténuation.

Un verre à Montréal. Version à 6.8%. Un liquide à la robe brune acajou. Un anneau de mousse et sa dentelle. Au nez, des malts caramélisés qui rencontrent des raisins et des parfums de gomme-balloune. Au goût, un malt qui n’est jamais sucré et qui développe des saveurs rôties-torréfiées qui sont assez sèches (un mélange de café et de poudre de cacao). Les petits fruits de la vigne sont discrets et permettent une timide affirmation d’herbes amères. En bouche, le liquide a un corps de moyenne densité avec un bon pétillement et une texture huileuse. La finale se fait sur des notes très peu asséchantes et sur des notes légèrement aqueuses.

Quevillon (2897) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2009
Drank at the brewpub in the evening No Habs No, December 5, 2009. cask version (12 oz). Hazy caramel brown, small head. Aroma of spicy and juicy tart fruit. Taste of dry herbes, some notes of fruit malty, bitter but watery. Good but I’ll try the original!

asheft (2968) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2009
[on tap at brewpub] Cherry, almost medicinal but not quite, aroma with a touch of toffee. Almost clear chestnut with a thin, white ring. Sweet, buttery pumpkin flavour with notes of cinnamon and coriander. Light to moderate bitterness and moderate to medium carbonation. Medium body, bitterness lingers a tad in the finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Pour is dark brown with considerable amber peeking through, minimal head but one that’s very crisp. The mouthfeel is initially lively but fades somewhat quickly. Crisp fruit notes mingle with a solid (and not overly sweet malt presence). Not the most lively body, and this tends to make some of flavors less full than they might be otherwise. However, it’s a competent rendition of the style.

My Bottom Line:
Bubblegum phenols weave through this slick Dubbel’s caramel sweetness, as herbal and earthy hops flicker in the background.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the hazy brown.
-The mouthfeel is well fed and remains drinkable at all times.
-I seem to be getting faint chocolate notes at times.
-It’s hard to compare to authentic Dubbels because most are bottle-conditioned, but I’d say this is pretty spot on.
