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.

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 breweryís 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.

Pour on tap at Happy Gnome, dark reddish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of nuts, dark caramel, toffee, slight acid, hints of grass, slight spice notes with a touch of yeast, more bready notes as well. Taste is big bread, caramel, toffee, some slight spice, hints of grass, nuts, finishing fairly sweet.

DalzAle (2011) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2013
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 canít 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 Iím not sorry I gave it a try.

vikingguy (956) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2013
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 Iíve had, but I lik it. Prickly carbonation. A very nice Dubbel.

Bottle. Pours a clear, dark brown appearance with a lasting dark brown head. Lots of CO2, spicy yeasty, candy sugar, caramel, dark fruity aroma. Body is a bit thin. Kind of woody, dark caramel, kind of funky yeasty, light chocolate, somewhat fruity/cherry flavor that dries out a bit on the finish. Booze is hidden pretty well. Not bad.

750 ml bottle purchased at Zipps in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The pour is a brown golden, with a 1/2 inch off white head. The aroma is dark fruit, honey sweet malt, a light roast character, and ester clove Belgian yeast. The taste is the sweet malt, black cherry fruit, a touch of the faint roast, and the Belgian yeast character. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation, and a sweet yeast finish. I am not normally a huge Dubbel fan, though I liked the fruit and yeast character in this one. Both of the Boom Island beers I have tried are solid.
