Bottle from Liz. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy beige head. Aromas of dark fruit and dark roast malt. Med + body. Flavor is raisin/date, with a little treacle and a very little yeast/spice. It all blends together in a very tasty and drinkable Belgian. Touch of chocolate, perhaps, in the finish.

wlajwl (3565) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Aroma is dark fruit, yeast and malt grit. The flavor is dark fruit/grapes/raisins, malts and a mildly tart finish. A bit thin for a Dubbel but not bad as a whole.

I had this for my third time on tap at the Crown Valley Brewery. This is a horrible example of an Abbey Dubbel. There is no Belgian Yeasts in this beer at all. (confirmed by Denny, the BrewMaster). It is really just a Strong American Ale that is just OK.

Onslow (1102) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear brown ale with frothy and lasting head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts, brown sugar, molasses, dark fruit. Taste is sweet caramel, toffee, dark fruit, a little tart and a bit of dry astringency in the finish. Smooth palate with very good mouthfeel.

kdm1984 (586) - Missouri, USA - JUN 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2012 Full-bodied, hoppy finish; Belgian/fruity-smell. Respectable, if not super-memorable.

rumproasts (2589) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2012
dark amber with medium head. not as yeasty as belgian dubbels, but very drinkable. alcohol pretty well hidden.

Damico (2356) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours dark amber with a big frothy beige head. The aroma is light, some sweet nutty malts. The flavor is also a bit sweet, lighter for the style, with notes of malts, and a bit buttery nut-like flavors. Not too bad, not terribly interesting either though.

jmagnus87 (2220) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2012
UPDATED: APR 30, 2012 Draft at Blues, Brews and BBQ festival. Pours nut brown with some nice off-white head. Aroma of roasty nuts and caramel. Taste is the same. Medium body with a thick creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, awesome. I’d gladly drink this again.
