brokensail (12169) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
A dark amber pour with a khaki head. Very metallic and off-putting aroma. Tons of prune juice, some toasted malt, a hint of roast, and dark fruit sweetness. A bit of spice and yeast, too. The flavor is quite metallic as well. Very heavy on the roast and prune notes, which is not pleasing either. A bit of cocoa, some mild clove spiciness, and some toasted bread.

Leighton (12985) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Beermerchants. Pours clear auburn with a big, dense beige foam head. The nose holds some ripening berries, mild Belgian yeast, brown bread, candi sugar, light toffee. Medium sweet flavor with some toasty bread, dried fruits, berries, low bitterness, dry toffee. Medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Moderate sweetness on the finish, further dried fruits, raisins, berries, toasted grains and bread, hints of earth and leather, nips of yeast. A pretty solid entry level dubbel. Not much depth but it’s very drinkable.

Hamirubi (112) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 13, 2015
33cl bottle. When poured in a trappist glass, this beer has the perfect looks. A brownish body and a yellow, brown head on the top. The thick foam lasts for a few minutes and makes for a tasteful appearance. A darkred gloom colours the sides. The aroma hints for suger, oak and a touch of sherry and caramel. It even reminds of the Westmalle Dubbel beer. Sadly enough, the taste doesn’t match the great expectations. Though it has more mouth than the blond Brugse Zot, this dark beer has unpleasant water notes on the tongue. For the finish is more tasteful with a beautiful alcohol throat, I do rate this Brugse Zot Dubbel above average.

MelvinKalksma (37) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
The aroma and taste are great from this good looking dark beer. The only problem is that it has no real character, it is too watery.

Hanoi (530) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle. nose is burnt sugar, slight toffee, slight apple, dust, a touch of candy sugar. Taste is apple, leading to burnt sugar, dough, a slight vinous note of over ripe fruit, feels very thin and watery. Mouthfeel is fine. As it warms there is touch of spice and dark fruits emerging. The beer avoids the problem of over sweetness which bedevils the style but is very plain.

vadie (908) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
Marron avec un grand col marron. L’arôme du caramel et fruits noir. Le goût est similar et pas mal carbonisé. Pas trop complexe mais bonne.

Fresh aroma. Very Malty. Candy sweet. Can drink a lot easily. Lacks a bit of character.

Bière qui ne se détache pas d’autres. Léger goût de caramel. Elle passe bien quand même.

Had at Mythos in Joplin, MO tonight. Solid dubbel. A little tart for the style, but has dark fruits, well-hidden alcohol, decent balance.
