This should not be compared to the Trappist Monks. It fell short. It was kind of bland.

Poured from bottle into glass. A good beer but only an average begium ale. I would get again as it has a good flavor and good aroma.

A great beer for BJs, but only decent for a Belgian style. Pours a beautiful red color, but with a lighter tan head then normal. Taste is good, definitely Belgian style, but a little bit lighter then most Belgians. I prefer them creamier. But overall, not bad. Had in the bottle at BJs.

I just canít get into dubbels. The sweetness combined with a sugar kick that I donít like make this perhaps my least favorite style. This is an average version with all of my normal complaints.

On draft. Lots of the Belgian fruity yeast character, banana. A nice dry finish that made this beer easy to drink. Well done.

On tap at BJís in Allen, Texas. The beer pours a medium amber color with a tan head. The aroma is very sweet, with a lot of toffee and candy sugar. The flavor is very similar. The toffee and nuttyness goes pretty well with the candy sugar. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Decent, but nothing too great.

I too was hoping for a dubbel as good as
BJs tripel-style Grand Cru - but this one missed the mark. Hard to tell what "notes" it had because it was served too cold. As it lost its superchill the Belgian character started to come through a little but overall this was a disappointment.

Maybe Iím just more impressed with BJís brews than most folks, but I liked this quite a bit. I had it at BJís in Houston. Itís a Belgian double ale, and the placard on the table said that itís brewed with traditional Trappist yeast. All I know for sure is that it tastes great. Itís full bodied and cloudy, it has a wine-like aroma, and a hearty, rich taste with tones of apples and spice.

On tap at the Huntington Beach location. It pours amber with a khaki head. The aroma has some fruit basket and hard candy. The flavor is fruity with notes of raisin bread, toffee, apples and a bit of an alcoholic finish. Typical American interpretation of the style.

Citrus Park, FL - on tap at BJs. Murky dark orange pour, off-white head, bit of lacing. Brown sugar aroma, hint of black licorice. Flavor has some candied sugar notes, a bit of toffee sweetness, some toffee, back end of dates. Overall tastes like liquid bread pudding. Sticky mouthfeel. Not bad at all.
