Draught - I didnít really find this at all thin, like most others seem to have - not as sweet as I expected, more of a crisp spice to it, with subdued caramel character - a bit of chocolate in the finish.

This is a bit of a disappointment. It is quite watery and thin. Quite yeasty finish.

Tap at Mugs in Brooklyn. This is not the best abbey dubbel Iíve ever had, but for having come from Brooklyn and having drunk it less than a half-dozen blocks from the brewery...yum.

Had this on tap at Muggs in Brooklyn, a mere trip down the street from the brewery. Love it. Rich mellow but robust color with sea-foam head. Tastes even like salt spray and fermented peach. Brooklyn again does not fail to impress. Heavy and hearty on palate.

Draft @ Mugs Ale House. Clear brown color with almost no head. Bartender served it in a wide rimmed chalise. Aromas of dried fruits and light yeast. First taste is hoppy right up front which settles into dried fruits and mellow malt. The body seems a bit thin for a dubbel and the alcohol is a kick in the ass right away. I liek the concept of the Brew Master Reserve and hope these improve. I hear this dubbel is much better than the previous version released a few years back.

Given my prior experiences with Brooklyn beer, this one was a bit of a let down. Somewhat tart with quietly subdued malts.

i tried this belgium last night, not bad for a brooklyn, but not a great belgium, very vanilla tasing,but crisp and a bit over carbed, nice finish overall, with a bit of lace in the finish.
