Poured from 12 oz bottle. Aroma smells like pure malt extract, nothing more and nothing less. Appearance wise, itís a clear copper with a thicker than usual head. Taste wise, itís like a mixture of malted barley and some type of preservative, almost like a toast beer with strawberry jam. Itís not horrible but not great.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Bottle from Binnyís Beverage Depot, Orland Park, Illinois: This poured a clear ruby/brown body with a tall tan head that vanished quickly. It had a yeasty, fruity nose (dark cherries, dates) with some slightly burnt light brown sugar. Slghtly oily mouthfeel. The flavor was much light the nose with an added light touch of alcohol. Itís a nice enough drink, but doesnít really come across as a Dubbel.

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2010
grainy head dotted with black. translucent ruby red pour with big foam that retains. aroma is light fruity, some caramel. some plain cereal as well. flavor is tangy, fruity: orange peel, raspberry, grape. none of the expected nuttiness i hoped for. nor any deeper malt character, too light bodied to boot.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, ruby-amber colored body with a finger-width, frothy, light tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is malty sweet with a light fruit. Caramels, brown sugar, and some toasted bread. Raisin, plum, and a light yeasty pepper. Flavor is mostly similar. A lighter amount of sweet malts up front with some caramel, molasses, and toast before a good amount of a yeasty pepper comes in. Some light raisin and plum tastes before this dries with a moderate bitterness and a good amount of spice. Very lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and higher level of carbonation. Overall, a decent dubbel. Not very complex, but I do like how this drinks. Not bad.

hogan873 (449) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2010
Orange-red body with a thick, foamy off-white head. Nice aroma of brown sugar and cherries. The palate is rather thin but smooth. Quite tasty. Malty sweetness, fruit, and brown sugar. Thereís a decent alcohol warming at the end. Nice effort from a new brewer.

rader58 (801) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - APR 19, 2010
Pours a dark caramel to brown color. Aroma of caramel, dried fruit, clove and orange blossoms. Flavor of roasted malt, dried cherries, clove and nutmeg. A spicy dry finish. Quite good. Especially for a new brewery.

Headbanger (3415) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2010
12oz bottle 3/30/10 (Binnyís Naperville)-40į in Trappist glass-Pours a clear ruby with a small tight off white head. Aroma of sour, yeast, sweetness, and fruit. Taste of sweetness, malt, fruit, and brown sugar. This medium bodied brew does not fit the Dubbel style but IMO is still tasty and quite drinkable. Not the best but not the worst.

StefanSD (2217) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAR 25, 2010
12 oz bottle that was an extra from honkeybra. Pours a translucent brown color with a medium beige head that has fair retention and shows some lacing. The aroma is somewhat light with sweet roasted malts and peanuts. The flavor is rock candy sweet with sweet roasted malts, indistinct fruits and sweet nuts. The palate is uneven, starting malty, then finishing thin and gritty. Beer finished short with a bit of lingering biter walnut. Overall: Iím not a big fan of dubbels, nor am I a fan for overly sweet beers, so the kindest thing I can say to this was that it was interesting.

drpimento (2298) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Poured with a decent foamy frothy tan head and a tiny bit of lace. Head mostly died down quick. Color is a nice clear amber red. Aroma is malt, circus peanuts, dates, spice, and funk. Flavor is about the same with a sweet bitter finish. Body is on the thin side with ok carbonation. Wouldnít go out of my way for this.
