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.

Burnt dark mohagony. Nose has a touch of burnt rubber and dark fruits. Weak taste some rubber, some tree fruit. Sweet finish. Interesting. Not mind blowing

750 ml bottle thanks to Skyview, nice brew, thanks Bob. Color is a deep garnet with bubbly, spiderweb lacing. Aroma shows Belgian candy syrup, plum, figs and Christmas spice.
The flavor is spot on for the style. Dark fruit and yeast upfront with a nice earthy caramel malt base. Spice and pumpernickel bread with a medium body. Soft carbonation giving a smooth, creamy texture. Solid example of the style, nice job from this brewery!

4 oz. pour as part of an 8-beer flight, on tap at the brewery’s taproom. Labeled as "Boom Island Hoodoo Abdij Dubbel." Pours medium brown with an amber hue and a small amount of taupe head. Chocolate and dirt dryness in the aroma. Chocolate and mocha taste. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Improves upon multiple sips.

Bottle received as part of a gift from a coworker. Very dark brown pour, spotty carbonation/lacing on top and an aroma of nice banana esters. Flavor is lightly malty raisins, thin body and a slightly sweet mild brown sugar finish. Not a bad beer, no off flavors; but incredibly overpriced when you consider you can’t find better dubbels at the same price or much cheaper.

Tap. 10 oz. Luxurious dark. Smells of balsamic and dark fruit. Syrupy. Rich, light tart flavor. Finished quickly but smoothly. Reminds of Belgium, which is a good thing for an American beer. Very nice.

Pours a dark brown with a large, foamy, almost soapy head (beer seems a bit over-carbonated). Fruity, malt-spice aroma. Flavor is just a touch on the sour side, with some caramel and raisin in there, maybe a bit of chocolate and some fruit esters. Beer is heavily-carbonated (kind of gaseous drinking experience to be honest--lots of burping). Finish is slightly bitter. Not really my favorite style to be honest, but I’m not sorry I gave it a try.

Murky brown color with small lingering off white head. Aroma - sour vineous notes and some sweet malts. Taste - those same sour notes, brown sugar, spicy esters and caramel malts. The sourness sets this apart from some of the other Dubbels I’ve had, but I lik it. Prickly carbonation. A very nice Dubbel.
