AlainG (1035) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2011
Bière rousse limpide, aucun col. Au nez, de très faibles odeurs sucrées émanent de ce liquide. On parvient cependant à détecter des senteurs de pruneaux et de cassonade. En bouche, il y a un goût malté, amer, plutôt âcre et sucré. J’ose espérer que je suis tombé sur une mauvaise bouteille, parce que je ne trouve pas que c’est réussi comme bière. (120-281111)

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
341 ml bottle. Pours a nice hazy brown, with a thin beige head. Smells of oak, tastes of typical belgian yeast, bready, fieldberries, hazelnuts. Very little bitterness ; almost imperceptible. Lingering green grapes taste. Body is watery, carbonation is somewhat high, alcohol is imperceptible. A very good double abbey.

TheJester (1727) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2011
341 mL bottle. Muddy chestnut brown with a small beige head. Aroma has yeast, alcohol (!), some dark, dried fruit. Not too sweet. Flavour is about the same, although it is quite uncomplicated and nothing stands out . Fuller than expected, considering the low ABV for the style. Not full for the style, though. Not bad.

Draught at Bistro L’Autre Oeil, Aylmer. Pours a hazy orange-copper with an average size mostly-lasting fluffy off-white head. Yeasty aroma along with some light candi sugar, caramel malt, fruit and floral notes. Flavour of Belgian yeast, caramel malt, light spices, some alcohol, candi sugar, fruit and light hops. Lightly bitter, slightly harsh, dry finish. Medium bodied. Nothing great, just a good Dubbel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GarnotingPete (740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2011
Bière trouble, couleur de noyer et coiffée d’un fin col beige laissant une légère dentelle au verre. Des arômes floraux et épicés de fruits rouges assez capiteux. Légèrement amère, avec une touche de sucre résiduel. Elle est de corps moyen, d’effervescence vive et elle se termine tout en arômes.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2011
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of candi sugar and fruity ester is quite charming. Taste is a nice balance mix between some candi sugar notes with some fruity ester and solid malt backbone with light dry fruits. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed with nice drinkability/complexity level.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This Dubbel is the setting for the synergistic relationship of earthy cocoa, candied fruit and peppery hop flavors, all evolving in a frothy mouthfeel perfect to showcase pleasant intricacies.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A beautiful head of foam recedes into the ruby red (colour is thus a tad lighter than the usual Dubbel).
-Flavor intensity is delicate, which is perfect for this highly drinkable brew.
-This might not be earth-shattering within its category, but it is highly harmonious and enjoyable throughout.
-The nose is more singular than the flavor profile.
-Leafy hops accompany earthy cocoa impressions into the finish.
-Flavor profile is balanced from beginning to end.
-Body is lean (not too sweet, yeah!) and the residual sugars are well levelled with the carbonation’s medium-high intensity.
-There aren’t enough dark malt flavors for my personal tastes in the style.
