3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber colour and a big, (very) pale head, that lasted quite a bit in the glass. Discreet aroma, almost indistinct.
Nice fruit and malt in the flavour and a pleasing smoothness on the palate.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 Pours a transparent red brown with a decent amount of froathy light brown head. Aroma is not too distinct: slightly yeasty sweet malty fruit. Flavor is raisiny and sweet with a slight spicy yeast flavor, but nothing too overpowering or out of the ordinary. Overall, a pretty decent belgian.

(on bottle) Dark red-brown, like a fox in the fall. Aroma like burnt toast and canesugar. Tad of fruit too. Funny absense of a fullness in the mouthfeel. It feels and tastes more like plumjuice, fruitness, with a hint of oxidaded hops and cocobean. The finish has a hint of malts. Funny gummybear taste in the late finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(on tap at Léon de Belge in Essen/Ruhr) Dark amber colour with a small tanned head. Sweet malty aroma with lots of dried fruits, yeasts and coriander spice. Initially sweetmalty taste with an almost refreshing slightly sour fruitiness turning into a spicy (pepper, coriander) and sweetbitter finish with hints of grilled red paprika. Medium body, the alcohol is well integrated. A very tasty Dubble !

Bottle. Murky, dark tan pour, with off-white head. Smelled of raisins and brown sugar. Tasted like raisins, brown sugar, and that wonderful belgian caramelish flavor.

Amber/brown in color. Very carbinated tan head that sticks around. A bit sweet, a little chocolate. I really enjoyed this one. Would pick up again for sure. Also could taste the malt in this one.
