3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by kmweaver on 7/3/08: Porus a transparent dark copper mahogany with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of toasty dark caramel and some light fruits along with a touch of earthy smoke. Body starts fairly full and dark caramely sweet with nice toasty character and some dry bready doughy notes in the finish. A pretty good dubbel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice crisp amber/copper coloured body with muddy ruby tints and a nice one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of nice pit fruits, raisins, figs, caramel, hops and a good touch of alcohol polished off by a sniff of oak. Effervescent, medium-bodied; Strong fruity and almost citric taste up front then fades to a nice maltiness, tons of caramel, a touch of nuts and a very light metallic and earthy finish. Aftertaste is fairly mild, perhaps more carbonation in the palate than other dubbels, but the flavour profile is about right. Overall, a good and rather complex dubbel that I was suprised and happy with. Iíd definitely try another one of these, but it seems that itís not available all over the place. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Ramsey Liquors in Ramsey, New Jersey on 19-January-2009, sampled at home in Washington on 01-October-2009.

Pours a dark orangey copper color. Aroma is of apples, nutmeg, some ginger and some dark fruits. Taste is considerably good. Dark fruit, brown sugar, raisins, some plum. the sweetness is borderline cloying, but it doesnt quite reach that point. moderate carbonation...quite smooth.

Bottle thanks to my Secret Santa. Pours with hazed brown body with a off-white head receding atop it. Aroma of brandy, chocolate, dark fruits, raisins, toffee, toasted barley. Taste is tobacco, raisins, metal, and chocolate. Fizzy mouthfeel. Not the best dubbel ever.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Full bodied, bready aroma and sharp malt and dried fruit flavor. I really liked this Dubbel from Boaks. Reminded me of another Dubbel thatís brewed in Joisey. Iíd drink another one in a hot minute. I just wonder the next time I pour a bottle of 2 Blind Monks into a Chimay glass if Iíll have the same love for it.
