MMJL (279) - Gliwice, POLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Zapach z butelki karmelowy, lekko chlebowy z nutami -przyprawowymi. Piana początkowo bardzo wysoka, średniopęcherzykowa, beżowa, syczy i dosyć szybko traci na wysokości, ale nie opada całowicie pozostawiając cienki kożuch. W barwie piwo jest miedziane, właściwie całkowicie klarowne. W aromacie ze szkła intensywnie fenolowe - jest guma do żucie, korzenne przyprawy, ciasteczka, karmel, nieco ciemnych owoców, czyli wszystko to, czego należy oczekiwać od dobrego dubbla. To co rzuca się wraz z pierwszym łykiem to zdecydowanie zbyt wysokie wysycenie - jest gryzące i z początku przebija się spod niego niewiele smaków. Pomieszałem trochę szkłem i było już lepiej - piwo jest karmelowe, ale przyprawowość, suszone owoce, oranżada bardzo wyraźnie się tu przebijają. Goryczka nie jest niska - głównie alkoholowa choć też z korzennymi nutami. Odfermentowane wysoko ale nadal dosyć słodkie i pełne w odczuciu. Mimo to naprawdę pijalne.

fredfa (118) - belo horizonte, BRAZIL - OCT 4, 2015
Dubbel bem diferente. Leve e com razoável drinkabilidade. Menos doce que uma dubbel padrão. Vale a degustação. Tem um péssimo custo benefício. Recomendo apenas se estiver em promoção.

dnicolaescu (1379) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 30, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL at 6,5% ABV. Hazy red dark brown. Big beige head. A pretty common dubbel - toasted bread crust, light caramel malt sweetness and some spice (clove?). Also, some cereal sweetness with a touch of vomit. Easy drinking yet substantial body. Decent.

Stor smag. Den har karamel og fin smag af den belgiske gær. Den har også let bitterhed i eftersmagen.

anstei (447) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 4, 2015
75cl bottle. While having quite a soft aroma, the crisp and softly bubbly palate makes this malty and sweet beer very easy to drink. Almost too easy. And still very tasty at that!
