Great beer I dont understand it’s underrated. Reddish dark brown color. Aroma is liquourish, caramel, toffee. Taste is sweet but well balanced. Very pleasant brew. Go for it!

Mainuh_man (64) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2014
0.33L Bottle. Pours dark brown with a rocky tan head that dissipates quicky. Rich malt and fruity yeast aromas. Cooked vegetables, alcohol,... Flavor goes almost immediately to bitterness, which is surprising given the aromas. This morphs into a strange (but not unpleasant) set of cooked vegetable/basement flavors, then the roasted malt and candi sugar starts to develop. Not something I’ve really experienced before. The sugar comes out a bit more in the end, and sticks to the back of the throat, with warm alcohol and an herby hop linger. Medium-full bodied with a thick mouthfeel and sharp feeling, but average carbonation. Overall, some interesting aromas/flavors with this beer, unique for a dubbel, but fairly heavy, so couldn’t drink too many of these.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2014
Big beige head. Hazy deep dark red body. Deep licorice and spice aroma with syrupy notes. Dry, and faintly sweet, earthy spicy licorice taste with red berries and herbs notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, fluffy mouthfeel. Dryish herbal spicy raspberry aftertaste with earthy notes. Lovely! Vivid, subtle, full of flavour, highly drinkable. (0.33l bottle from the brewery.)

Bottle from the brewery. Amber beer, fluffy head. Rich nose. Fruity, sweetness, but also some dry notes. Chocolate, marzipan. Rather sweet finish.

maekchu (1973) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Fine strained dark fruit nose, with some caramel, marshmallows, sugar, and alc. fumes. Light reddish-brown color, good lace. Sweet dark fruit initial, serious spicing, blend of cinnamon, pepper, and candi sugar. Mild roast. A bit of harsh alc. in mid and final. Medium body, sits a bit heavy of the tongue. Interesting spiced-up dubbel. Not sure how much I really like it.

superspak (2455) - Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2014
330 ml bottle into chalice, best before 12/24/2015. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, plum, pear, apple, light banana, caramel, toast, candi sugar, brown bread, clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, pear, apple, light banana, caramel, toast, brown bread, candi sugar, clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, pear, apple, light banana, caramel, toast, candi sugar, brown bread, clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good dubbel. Good complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 28, 2014
Bottled@HBF2014. Ambery copper colour with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is medicine, some sweet notes and mild earthiness. Flavour is fruity, some nectary sweetness along with alcohol, sweet malts and some yeasty notes. A bit on the sweet side, but still quite a tasty brew.

corkyrory66 (524) - BELGIUM - APR 27, 2014
Une double de 8,5 % abv, voilà qui s’annonce correctement. Extrême vivacité au décapsulage, comme du champagne !! Couleur brun très foncé, et d’apparence totalement opaque. Mousse à gros flocons en bas, et cratères en haut, très jolie. Arômes de fruits noirs (groseilles, cassis) et en même temps de pomme verte, miel d’acacia, pain noir, glycine, pointe d’anis. Volume assez liquide de la 1ère bouche sur un ensemble très harmonieux malt torréfié/houblon amer/fruits. Arrière-bouche bien structurée, longue. 2ème sur un bel ensemble avec une pointe d’épice, et très nuancée. 3ème avec des saveurs de houblon très fines, des fruits, des épices et herbes aromatiques. Arrière-bouche un rien fleurie, très belle. La longueur apporte d’autres nuances avec de la banane, pointe de noisette, amande, pâte d’amande. La levure est très satisfaisante, bien lisse et pourtant épicée. L’alcool est bien progressif, apportant sa pierre à l’édifice. La finale est vraiment belle, avec de la précision dans les saveurs CONCLUSION : une bière remarquable, à la fois forte et fine, bien travaillée, avec beaucoup d’harmonie.
