Pours a semi-hazed auburn. Half finger off white head shows poor retention. Light lacing on the sides of the glass just fall back into the beer. Ripe sweet cherries and raisin really come out in the aroma which I found to be very pleasing. Some caramel malt, alcohol, yeast and biscuit are in there too. The flavor is heavy with prune juice and raisin. The cherry component is actually quite tart. A spicy bitterness presents itself, but it does not last. Very little Belgian yeast notes. Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is average. Texture is watery. This beer is a good take on the style, although it tastes a little "young." It is tasty without being too heavy.

I probably shouldn’t be so hard on this beer, but I’m a bit touchy when it comes to Belgian doubles and this beer doesn’t really touch the best and brightest. Mild in comparison, has spice but isn’t spicy. Balanced as far as it goes.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours Dark amber, clear, medium beige head. Aroma is not too strong, mostly caramel and fruits. Taste is sweet and fruity some earthiness to it; the beer is very well balanced alcohol is well hidden. Nice beer, enjoyable.

Weak aroma, nice color. There is a sweetness which just makes the flavor enjoyable, but not by much. Watery.

nearbeer (3586) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2013
12 oz. Clear darkish copper with a quarter inch of lasting foam. Mild nose of scorched brown sugar, dark fruit and cola. Flavor steps it up some with toffee, plum, and dark cherry. Delicate balance finishes barely dry with some light roast, citrus, molasses and a touch of woody hops. Medium body has light-medium carbonation and a nice balance. Nothing real complex, but a tasty and somewhat unique dubbel.

GJF (1217) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Dark ruby pour. Lots of malt flavors, caramel and some dark fruit. I get a kind of dark ale--almost Scottish--without any real abbey character to it. Drinkable.

EtTuCthulhu (991) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 12, 2013
This beer’s aroma was reminiscent of toasted malts, allspice, and a hint of smoke, and the color was a clear copper color with an off-white head that faded to a ring and thin layer on top of the liquid. The taste was quite sour, a touch sweet, and slightly bitter, and the palate combines a medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, and an abrupt finish.

Very drinkable, I quite enjoyed this one. Not much aroma, but I was pleased with the taste. Received a few bottles as a gift.

A very good dubbel. Pours a fantastic amber red with a thick tan head. Not too much smell, a little bit of berries. Taste is great, quite malty, with banana and vanilla, and some plum. Refreshing finish. Very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
