lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Dark brown-red, beige foam. Aroma is odd, cooked grain, whispers of oak and cheery, but overall not very pleasant. Taste is very similar, more of a cooked grain taste, some oak, a more pleasant fruitiness with cherry and some berry tones. Light tartness from the fruit aspects. Meh, I bought this thinking it was more of an Oud Bruin or Flemish Red rather than an Abbey Dubbel.

SpringsLicker (3289) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Pours a clear dark brown with a lacey, light tan head that fades rather quickly. Slightly tart sour aroma. Malty, little or no hops. Slightly sweet with a touch of tartness that was hinted at in the aroma. Expecting an Abbey Dubbel but I got a bit of Flemish Brown with it.
