COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in Belgium's famous Trappist style, this ale starts with a complex fruity aroma of rasins, rum, toffee, and spice. On the palate the dark rich malts explode in a burst of effervescence that cuts through the sweetish middle to reveal a dry, slightly winey finish.

Growler from Kramer17801. The pour is dark brownish and ruddy, with khaki head. Aroma of caramel scotchy malts, a solid dose of dark fruit (figs, cherry), banana, and some brown sugar. Medium palate with caramel malt in the flavor, plus toffee, brown sugar, some cherry, figs, and a little finishing cognacy heat. Nicely done, and a solid selection for my Bullfrog cherry-popping!

FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2006 I am fond of Dubbels in general but was a bit underwhelmed by this one. Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a medium dark brown with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is sweet and sugary with a hint of alcohol burn. The flavor is sweet with heavy Belgian candi sugar notes. The malts are milder than I would expect from this style. The alcohol burn dominates this one too much. The finish is a bit sharp and biting.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Poured a burgandy color with a thin, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana chips, coconuts, and yeast. Taste of raisins, prunes, cherries, and yeast, peppery alcohol leading way to a dry finish.

Ommegang fest. Brown ale with a ginger aroma. Nice caramel malt with light balanced hops and smooth alcohol finsih. Some coriander notes. Pleasant.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2009 On tap. Pured a dark mahagony color with a small off white head. Aroma and tastes of dark fruits and toffee. Not a bad dubbel. Rerate. 750ml bottle shared courtesy of weare128128adbc##-=. Poured a deeper amberish color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of dark fruits, cherries, yeast, and some nuttiness. Tastes of dark fruits,caramel, and some nuttiness. This one had a sour and tartness that seemed out of place.

Sammy (8351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
UPDATED: APR 23, 2007 Previewed this somewhat yeasty experiment. Full flavour and sweet. Will be less sweet as it ages. Liked the yeast aroma and taste, chewy mouthfeel.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - APR 8, 2004
Smells cherries, peaches, hops, darker toffee malts. Looks a strange purplish color. Medium body and clean finish. Tastes malty but balanced. A better small-town dubbel than others I have had.

Basically your run-of-the-mill average dubbel, nothing all that special about this particular brew, nicely balanced, good lacy head, pretty standard
