Warning: The dark malt flavors, spicy aromas and mysterious undercurrent of bitterness in the award-winning Belgian-style Dubbel are powerful mojo in the ancient Hoodoo tradition. Prepare to fall under its spell. Enjoy with a black cat bone or serving of John de conkeroo.

chinchill (4338) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2015
On tap the the Republic in Minneapolis. Clear but very dark brown body. Good head that has reasonable retention. Unusual in that thereís a fair amount of vanilla in the nose and flavor. The aroma is a bit sweet and may bring a bakery to mind, but the flavor is a more bitter than sweet. Less fruity than average for style, O: Recommended, if unusual version of the style.

tennisjoel (1377) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2015
My first Boom Island beer Iíve tried. Iíve mainly avoided this brewery based on reputation. Aroma and appearance are decent enough, but the flavor profile is thin. A slightly tart off flavor which is not expected for the style. Could be infected. Somewhat drinkable, which is the only compliment I can give. Disappointing overall.

commonmac (1066) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Tap at Eliís in downtown Mpls. Tulip glass. Dark brown with very little head. Toffee and caramel aroma with some roasted notes. Taste feels very mild and elements of toffee and subtle Belgian dark fruit. No real bite. Smooth. Thin which was slightly disappointing. I have had it elsewhere and itís been better. This rating is based on the current rendition Iím drinking so take that with a grain of salt.

Braudog (6385) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Draft at the brewery. The aroma is of sweet, burnt brown sugar. Drinks with an almost sour character more than a dubbel. Another thin beer and not up to name. (#5701, 8/31/2014)

On tap - this is a good enough dubbel. Spicy is the main take away for me along with the malt bomb on the base.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2014 Roasty, malty yeast and perfectly balanced. Pours with a huge head, lots of caramel sweetness and some bitterness for balance. A real treat.
