j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle, probably at least a couple years old and was sort of forgotten in the cellar. Oops. Pours a rather clear ruby tinged copper amber color with a medium to large beige head. Old fruit and gingerbread on the nose, plums and toast. Yeast and old caramel. Medium bodied, big and sweet, picking up a bit of an old paper and fruit leather note over the sweet malt. Age is certainly apparent here. Seems like this might have been great with one year on it, but at two to three it’s probably past its prime. Still rather tasty though, moving into long spicy yeast with a gentle warming alcohol on the finish.

Swaroga (1813) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2015
A bit cloudy brown Colorado and a beige medium big head. The aroma is toffee, spice cake, burned caramel, raisin, plums, chocolate and nuts, vanilla, clove, cinnamon. Rich. The has a lively carbonation reminding me a cocacola. Quite oily. Medium sweet with chocolate and raisins as a back bone. The bitterness is earthy with notes like clove and fruit seeds. Finish is fruity and earthy. Good balance and a satisfying beer.

Franckg (526) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2015
Robe brune ambrée, col de mousse crémeux et généreux. Dentelle epaisse et collante. Arômes de chocolat, anis, figues, raisins secs, un peu d’herbes. Un léger côté acidulé se dégage. En bouche, goűt de chocolat, herbes, raisins secs et levures belges. Des effluves de malt et noisettes se dégagent par la suite pour créer une belle amertume. Texture modérée, l’abondance de fines bulles masque un peu trop les saveurs. Moyennement ronde et les saveurs sont assez brčves. Bonne dubbel mais j’ai vu mieux.

asheft (2739) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle. Slightly sour aroma with fresh strawberries and faint pickle juice as it warms. Some brown sugar sweetness. Hazy mahogany under a persistent, light brown blanket. Complex malty brown sugar and dried fruit flavour with no bitterness and a very light nuttiness that comes in late with an almost dry bitterness. Medium to full body, smooth, medium high carbonation.

adster (533) - HUNGARY - MAR 21, 2015
Tojáslikőr színű krémhabja alatt sűrű szójatest lapul, tejszínesen krémes illatnyalábjai puha szövettel borítják be az aszalt szilvás, mazsolás szárazságú, befőttszerűen édes és ánizsos fűszerezettségű aromaszerkezetet. Illata gazdagságát csak zamatos ízjegyei sokszínűsége múlja felül, klasszikus belga komponensekkel bőségesen megtömött teste mintha csak egy kolostor falai közül került volna az üvegbe. Sima és tiszta kortyai egészséges vadsággal közvetítik a palackban elterülő ódon italköltemény magasztos mondanivalóját. Kandiscukorral édesített, nemesen alkoholos ízjegyei fűszeres aszalványok fanyarságát rejtik magukban, élesztőtől hangos szerkezete megnyugtató intenzitással tárja elénk a dubbelek legjavát. Örök érvényű alkotás, megérdemelten foglalja el a helyét a legjobbak között.

wolffish (361) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2015
Embouteillée le 21-03-2013... On sent les fruits séchés, les bananes, l’alcool et la levure. C’est aussi bon que dans mon souvenir; une des meilleures doubles que j’ai pu goűter sans contredit. Rien ne détonne, tout est parfaitement en harmonie. Belle réussite!

erickok (4322) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 4, 2015
Dark brown body, large head, looks amazing. Well developed, dark fruit like figs and prune. Pumpkin pie spices, crusty bread. Large amount of flavour, bit woody, barn, fruity, rustic, hay and bitter enough. Only in the end does the alcohol come to play. Quite dry actually too, in taste. Slightly undercarbonated. The best dubbel I have tasted in ages! It almost single handedly would convince me to drink those more often of even brew one... (50cl bottle from Bičre Revolution)

Jannick13 (142) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Still very new to this style. Will re-evaluate later. For now, I feel like this one is laking that nice caramel, rond bodied sweetness that I enjoy in other dubbels. Rating pending.

Taste and palate: medium body, a tad creamy, high carbonation, sweet molasses and dark fruit finish. Overall: Really good, easy to drink to its smoothness feel in mouth.

Nocturne (1203) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2014
500ml bottle. Dark ruby/brown. The head lets it down compared to most Belgian dubbels. Aroma is very good though. Chocolate, prune, orange peel and leather, plus the spices really come to the fore. Taste follows similar lines, and whilst enjoyable it doesn’t feel nearly as elegant as the aroma did. Spiciness here is more from the yeast than anything added. Plenty of positives but I wish everything coalesced a bit more.
