rarbring (1958) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2012
Aroma: Smelling roasted barley, burnt rubber, blackcurrant leaves.
Appearance: A clear brownish read beer with a warm off-white head, little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Starting with brown toast, toffee, fruits, grape-fruit peel.
Palate: Medium carbonation, soft and sticky, big body.
Overall: A malt dominated brew. Rather bland.
Note: Bottle 341 ml, thx to KM. Reviewed 2012-08-25.

Frothmeister (660) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
341ml bottle. Pours a beautiful hazy dark brown with red hues, and a huge beige head of fine bubbles. The aroma has strong mineral notes, with dates, bitter red fruit, alcohol, bread crust, coffee, earthy notes, and dough. As for taste, it’s very sour (under-ripe plum), with a little butter, woodyness, dried fruits, rotten red fruit, molasses, coffee, green beans, and a bitter finish. It’s weird. I wouldn’t recommend it, but I don’t fully dislike it either. I can’t say that I’ve ever tasted a beer like this, and it’s kind of growing on me the more I have. Beware I guess...

Ratman197 (11760) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of coriander, carmel, cocoa, fruittiness and light molasses. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, toffee, cola, fruittiness, coriander and light spice with a crisp lingering toffee/coriander finish.

Ric_Olie (7) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2012 does not count
Bottle. I am not a pro in Dubbel, but this one seems to be pretty near the style (according to what I read) The smell of the beer is very yeasty, but fruity too. In the mouth, the beer is very heavy. Good, but heavy. It is a fruity beer, very sweet. The color of the beer is Ruby Red. Hazy, but not totally cloudy. The finish of this beer is lightly bitter, almost sour. Very complex, but definitly for degustation, not for drinking on a patio.

Bouteille 341ml. De couleur brune foncée et voilée. Nez de malt sucré genre sucre brun et caramel (notes de butterscotch), de levures fruitées (raisins, notes de prunes, traces de bananes) légèrement épicées avec des notes de chocolat , de houblon herbeux, d’alcool et de noix. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux petites notes crémeuses. Goût de levures fruitées (prunes, moyen de raisins, traces de figues et de bananes) et légèrement épicées (poivre doux, traces de cannelle) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de caramel butterscotch avec notes de toffee rôti, un léger goût de sucre brun et de pain grillé puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût d’alcool réchauffant accompagné d’une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux notes florales. Post-goût moyen-long, léger-moyen amer d’alcool doux, de houblon herbeux avec un goût de levures fruitées (pelures de prunes, traces de moût de raisins) avec des notes de noix grillées.

Metalchopz (2715) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2012
Purchased a mixed 12-pack of "Les Connaisseurs" beers from this brewery. Pours a clean copper colour with a huge fomay tanned head that stays very long and with wavy-soapy lace. The nose is quite mild with raisins and notes of rust from the hop. Oily mouthfeel and medium-bodied. Dark fruit flavours with a light grassy background. Starts sweet but does not get overly syrupy. Just a tad too mild overall, which makes this Dubbel a little forgetting compared to other Quebec brews of the same style. Also, a bit light for a Dubbel.

Minderbinder (2793) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle 341ml. Pours brown/red, with good beige head, diminishing. Aroma is of fruits, malt, molasses. Taste is of fruits, malt, sweet. Somewhat acid, more than expected. An OK beer.

Lukaduke (2769) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 25, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a ruby brown with a big gaseous head that grew out of the glass. The aromas are faint but whiffs of raisins and cherry. Its taste very similar to some flemish reds, a little sweet burnt sugar and a touch of sour cherry. Nice undertones of cola, fig and hazelnuts. Pleasant Surprise!

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2012
Bottle. Label says "8" rather than "6" but style and ABV are the same. Huge 80% head that required waiting a while to try. Lasting yellow-brown foam on crisp copper. Aroma has some sweetness and dark malt. Nice body. Dark malt is tasty with hints of chocolate and plums, although there is an underlying sourness that seems out of place and slows you down. A hint of saltiness.
