SpringsLicker (3253) - 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.

Pours a nice cola colored brown. Aromas of malts, fruit, and a touch of spice. Has flavors of chocolate, caramel, and a touch of wood. Kinda thin in the finish.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2011
#1223 Die Bezeichnung als Biere Brune bzw. Bruin Bier ist schon irreführend, denn es ist definitiv kein Dubbel! Es startet säuerlich-fruchtig, wird dann minimal rezent nach Toast und Röstmalz und fällt im Abgang ziemlich in sich zusammen, soll heißen: Bis auf die penetrante säuerliche Note, die sich durch das ganze Bier zieht, hinterlässt es keinen bleibenden Eindruck. Schade, denn die Flasche selbst mit dem Brügger Belfried ist schlichtweg gelungen!

On tap at a bar in Madrid. Dark brown beer with light brown head. Aroma is coffee, fruits, toasted malts, spicy. Flavour is fruity, slightly alcoholic with a moderate sweet final. Carbonation is medium high. Body is medium. I expected more about this beer.

obguthr (4659) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Chives, coriander, raspberry, and cream cheese nose. Clear rust, medium yellow head, abundant glass adherence. Raspberry and coriander flavor. Fizzy. This is not a dubbel. It drinks like a good fruit beer, but a dubbel it is not.

thirstyrabbit (1458) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 17, 2011
Small bottle. Dark brown, slightly red. Medium to tall head. Dark berries and some light vinous notes in the aroma. Palate is initially sweet and sour but turns a bit watery. Taste has some dark malts and cherries. This does not taste like any of the Abbey Dubbels I have had - it must be something else. It is sour but not as sour as, say, Rodenbach. Interesting concept but it needs to have a fuller body.

50belair (2967) - Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2011
On tap at the Gingerman. Brown pour with an off white head. Aromas of sour cherries. A little watery and thin with a refreshing flavor profile consisting of sour cherries and caramel malts..
