pivo (2660) - GERMANY - DEC 12, 2005
Yeast, toasted malt nose. Dark ruddy brown color with a foamy biege head. Light sweet caramelly malt body, hint of raisin and maple syrup. Dry woody end, lingering pepperiness. Thin and quick, not bad but certainly not good.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2005
Bottle (330ml). Beer of Belgium Gift pack 4of6. Poured murky reddish-brown with a this fizzy-creamy-foamy beige lasting head. Aroma of sweet fruit, sweet roast malt, even a bit creamy - not terribly smooth, but nice elements. Taste is ripe apple, alcohol bitterness, mild roast malt, a bit spicy - mildly sweet but a bit harsh in the finish. Fizzy, slightly metallic mouthfeel - almost burnt by the bottom of the glass. If I weren’t partial to the style, this would be 3 or lower.

MarkoR (930) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2005
Thick creamy head that stays for the long run. Caramel flavour. Some cherry aroma. Smooth.

Habanero (3949) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2005
Off-white head and medium lasting. Brown colour. Fruity/ malt aroma. Caramel, dryed fruit and herbs in the flavour. Slightly sweet finish. OK but not a remarkalel dubbel.

Tasted just like Coresendonck Brown...in fact I think it is Corsendonck Brown!

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2005
Dark red colored, big beige head. Sweet and cherry aroma. Pouring carbonation. Sweetness, bubble gum, cherries in flavor, mild alcohol in aftertaste, sweetness lasts. Too sweet and bubbling brew for me.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 6, 2005
bottle from whole foods. aroma is caramel, mollasses, bread. looks like the picture...dark brown, huge head that sticks around. medium/light body...much less heavy than expected for the style. flavor is definitely malty, some chocolate, ..this is very carbonated, and it makes the finish less sweet. good, but could be a little more malt complexity.

Eructoblaster (3791) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2005
Bottle. Nice cloudy brown body with ruby glints, moderate carbonation and a thick beige pillowy head. Interesting malty aroma with fruity (plum, dark cherries), bready, and yeasty notes. Taste is a bit less complex: it is mainly hoppy with bready hints. It ends with a decent bitter finish and leaves a pretty fair warming effect. Average Dubbel.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Murky brown color, small head. Veggie sellery nose. Boring, sligthly sweet malt taste - not much going on here- but still ok.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Pours brown with a large off-white head. I swear I saw one bubble dancing above the rest as though suspended from a spider’s web. The weirdest thing I’ve ever seen. Yeasty and bready aroma, with dark fruits like raisins and prunes. Kind of hot on the nose. Harsh carbonation makes it hard to distinguish flavors. Some dark fruit. The finish is sweet and yeasty.
