AndyPublican (11) - Kazan, RUSSIA - NOV 27, 2013
Rich taste, not too complicated, and notes of black coffee, dark chocolate, orange peel, licorice, soft bitterness spices. Sweet taste of malt, caramel, spices. Goes well with cheese. Haunting in bottles - it’s excellent!)

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Pint on tap. Brown dull beer, not un-attractive but not pretty either. No lacing, small head. Aroma is a little malty/fruity/alcoholic but muted, not good. Tart unwelcome finish, different but i’ll get used to it. Brown sugar taste, some fruits, muted mouthfeel as well, far from my favorite dubbel but interesting enough to finish. Disappointment.

MikeJslc (768) - USA - AUG 28, 2013
Deep brown/coper, clear, fluffy beige head. Aroma of toasty/nutty malt, lots of grape and plums, a little dark rum note, earthy spice. Flavor: soft, bready malt with a nutty character, cocoa, over-ripe dark fruit, a dry, earthy, dusty finish. Malt complexity increases as it warms.

33cl bottle from Bier Paradijs shared with a friend called Martin. Thin light brown head. Clear amber pour. A decent double.

tomhenderson (166) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Pours tarnished penny copper color with moderate haze. Aroma is cloyingly sweet syrup malt. Thankfully the flavor is only moderately sweet. As dubbels are not my thing, this one is great but I would not go looking for it.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2013
Elle est de couleur brune avec un mince collet brun pale. Au niveau des odeurs, elle dégage des aromes de raisins, de liquorice et de chocolat. Au gout, le sucre brun, caramel et les raisins resorte au plus fort.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Gollem. Murky brown, ruby hue, beige head. Nose is light iron, med. price chocolate, bunch of choco puffs, light dried dark fruits,… Taste is surprising in a great way, creamy with some chocolate milk, choco puffs, mocha, chocolate cereal, creamy dark fruits, touch fake but still great,… Not the fullest body but still creamy,… Surprise but a lovely one.

Vaiz (3839) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear brown pour, thin light brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, ripe fruits, some licorice and slightly dusty. Flavor is bitter, spicy, slightly roasted, some bready yeast and a hint of brandy with alcoholic ripe fruits. Decent dubbel, but very dubbel.

RD400F (218) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle with best before of June 2013 to Leffe glass.

Aroma: Coffee, rotten fruits, sourness, licorice, raisin...quite a lot going on. A bit of booze detectable.

Appearance: Very dark burgundy with a cream colored head like mousse, looks like there will be lots of lacing.

Taste: A slight bit disappointing considering the aroma’s strength. Strong flavours of liquorice, dark malts, raisin, smoke and dark chocolate.

Palate: Really good, alcohol hidden well, heavy mouthfeel, perfect carbonation, dry finish. The only flaw is a lingering sourness.

Overall: Much better than I expected. Quite nice.
