1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted on tap at Old Chicago’s in Aurora, Colorado. Cherry wood appearance. Aroma smells like a typical sweet Belgian ale with candy sugar. Nutty brown flavor is more dominant than the Belgian ale taste. Body is pretty thin and actually tastes pretty flat. Below average beer.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear dark amber color with a thin head that fades quickly. Aroma of toffee and grainy notes. The taste is toffee, sugary notes and some faint spice. Not too bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer has a dark amber color with a reddish tint, and a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of caramel, malt and fruit. Light body with a caramel malt character and notes of wheat, yeast and a hint of spice. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Average overall.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear ruby colored with 1-finger tan head. Nose is caramel malt, mild butyrides, brown sugar. Tastes pedestrian, very Wheaties-like with not much else. Meh.

I got this in a mixed sampler pack of winter brews form world market. It smelled like farts and it just tasted like bowels. When I went online and found it was listed as a Dubbel I was shocked, this is not a Belgian styled dubbel. This beer is awful, do not buy it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured light-medium reddish-brown with a short, tight-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel, molasses, and candi sugar with accents of fruity yeast and dank wheat. The flavor found tart fruity notes on the tip of the tongue, with sweet caramel, candi sugar, and wheat following.. spicy, tangy finish with too much tacky residual sweetness. Lighter-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. smooth middle, but tangy and rough at odd times.. drinkable, but not very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours amber with tan head. The aroma is sweet with caramel, apple and chocolate chip cookie. Pretty nice. The taste is smooth with apples, caramel and muted cherry to midway. It seems to stay that way leanining toward smooth blended dark fruitiness into the finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark old-penny copper, mahogany highlights. Very low aroma of husky, lightly toasty caramel. Flavour profile is much the same-- very simple, and entirely malt driven. This could just as easily be a "light" doppelbock or scottish ale. There is no yeast character here, there is no spiciness, there are no fruity esters. How is this in any way a "Belgian ale"? FAIL.
