fiercepanda (607) - Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 A hazy ruddy brown beer with a thick off white head. Aroma is spiced and fruity. The flavor is roasty, fig, and lemon with an alcohol finish.

12oz bottle @ Simone’s. Clear light chestnut color with a smaller cream colored head. Lots of caramel and light fruit in the nose. Light chocolate and sweet malt flavors, thin body. Quite simple and drinkable. But then again just plain simple.

I liked a lot. It went well with my bison meatloaf that evening. Big shocker there. Had a couple.

I had on tap at Twisted Spoke into a pint glass...Pours a light brown that is clear with ruby highlights. Light tan head with low retention and lacing...The taste and aroma have the normal qualities of a dubbel but way too sweet. Raisons, dark fruits, tons of candied sugar present mostly. Super sweet plums and sugar dominate and make this uncrushable. The feel is really watery. A typical American attempt at a Belgian classic that falls short in quality and execution.

wxman (1522) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 On tap. Pours a clear reddish brown with a full rich light tan head. Taste is really superb. Rich sweet roasted malt flavor, buttery and caramely, even some toffee. This is more like a robust English brown ale vs. a Belgian Dubbel. No matter what they want to call it, I love it! Very well balanced and delicious. A nearby pub is offering it on draft in 20 oz glasses for $3.00!! Amazing. I bet that won’t last.

Bottle.
Pours an average amber with an aroma of cereal malt, Grape Nuts, and wheat. Flavor is the same. Average mouthfeel. It’s your basic American middle-of-the-road beer.

rubbishystuff (1963) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 From the County Market in Southern View. Um something didn’t quite work with this. It was not bad but it just lacked something. Seemed a bit thin and little slight on flavor. Serving: Bottle

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. There’s a decent alcohol warming at the end.

[Bottle] Brown pour with a nice amount of brown head. Malty aroma. The taste is quite malty as well. I’m mainly getting caramel with a yeast character. Spices like nutmeg and some dark pit fruits as well. Average mouthfeel and body. An interesting beer, but I wouldn’t call it a dubbel. In fact, I wasn’t sure exactly where they were going with this one.
