Patrickctenchi (3800) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Pours cloudy tea with a short, yellow-tan head. Scent is raisin, pepper..... Taste is dark fruits, a hint of spice..... tart caramel. A little bitter-dry at finish. Not bad.

Pours a sexy red copper with beige head. Smells lightly sweet of barley. The taste is robust and grainy with a light barley wine like American ale taste. There is a nice raisin and strong date taste with the grain to round out the flavor. This is not a Belgian beer.

jcnielsen (2182) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 4, 2012
On tap at 1839 Taphouse. Sweet, brown sugar, malty aroma. Belgian candy, chocolate, malty flavors. Kind of tastes like a mass produced dubbel.

bhensonb (11234) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 24, 2012
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 (3921) - 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 (1183) - 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 (678) - Missouri, USA - JUN 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2012 Full-bodied, hoppy finish; Belgian/fruity-smell. Respectable, if not super-memorable.
