Rockspeny (15) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, - SEP 29, 2012
Tried on draft in unfiltered version at the brwery. looks like a dark ale should, lovely sulphur cream head. Begian character to the smell, along with red berries, malt, caramel. Very smooth malty fruit flavour with red winegums, just right balance of sweetness, very satisfying and drinkeable. No aftertaste I can remember. Not as memorable a beer as the blonde.

Bottle. Pours a slightly red cola color with strong foam head. Aromas are hearty and sweet, everything is in there: subtle sweetness of kandij (rock candy), triple-like yeast, barley wine, small hints of raisins and cherries. Deep whiff gives off a little salmiak. Very well balanced. Taste is very earty, sensation resembles liquid whole weat bread/rye. Salmiak is relatively strong, flows into a nice bitterness with slightly boozy aftertaste. Great.

triskaideka (135) - Killarney, IRELAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle at home - pours copper with off white head. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Taste is of malt and fruit cake.

VincentKabel (192) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2014
A dubbel style beer like so many others. This one is very smooth and no flavour ever gets on top, very balanced, but also a bit boring. Nothing that makes this one stand out. Its slightly roasted, faint caramel taste and a smooth finish. Nice beer.

Alengrin (853) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
Dark successor of Brugse Zot with a light yellowish beige, mousse-like head on a dark chestnut robe. Aroma of bitter chocolate, hazelnuts, figues, plums, vague spicy notes. Malty, dryish taste, dried fruits, ending in a grassy hop bitterishness. Very cliché dubbel.

Een dubbel is normaal een bier met goed wat smaak, dat is echter het geval niet bij deze. Jammer

Icedwarf (291) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Rood bruin bier met veel schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en droog, bessen en banaan, echter niet erg intens. Valt tegen en lijkt niet op een Abbey Dubbel.

Christian (11052) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2014
On tap at Christian Firtal. Red copper colour with a big off-white head. The aroma has tropical fruit, caramel, dark sugar and a bit of phenolic yeast. Dry fruity flavour of dried fruit, tropical fruit and winegum, with bready malt and caramel

VsXsV (2235) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle. Clear deep copper liquid with medium off-white. Aroma of raw sugar, toffee, caramel, sweet alcohol and banana. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of raw sugar, toffee and alcohol. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. OK.

edsspoon (366) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle - pours hazy copper with a big rocky light brown head. Very good retention and thick lacing. Aroma of banana, cloves, bubblegum, pear and somewhat toasty. Taste of roasted malt, nuts, bitterness, earthy with a finish of sweet bubblegum flavours and a long bitterness. Some toffee, fruit and perfume. Alcohol permeates through a little bit which isn’t too pleasant. Medium body with a medium to high carbonation.
