skortila (4345) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2005
Aroma of roasted caramel maltiness mixed with some spice. Hazy, dark brown coloured with a lasting, thick brown head. Taste is sweet and bitter. Caramel malty, roasted. Some fruits (prunes/raisins) and definately spices in it. Bit like a combination between a dubbel and a stout. Nice.

thebeertourist (4650) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2005
Chestnut brown with a big, lacing head. Delicious aroma of caramel and some liquorice as well as spicy yeastiness. Raisiny aromas in the background. Full, raisiny sweetness with lots of caramel. The finish is dry with a lot of spicy yeastiness, balancing the malty sweetness very well. One of the best dubbels I have tasted in a long time.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2005
Dark brown in colour, with a small beige tight head. Aroma is dominated by caramel toffee, with a touch of plum and raisin in the background. Sweet, yet not in any way cloying. Dry enough all the way through. Nice caramel and plum flavours, with a slight bitter finish. Medium bodied, tasty dubbel. Not overwhelming, but very balanced.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Malty nose, some sugars. Dark brown body with a small off-white head. Sweet flavor, molasses.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2005
Bottled. Light spices and burnt caramel aroma. Brown color, light brown head, fair lace. Strong flavors, dark malt chocolat, spices, licorice, pretty bitter, medium body. Technical ok, but I don’t like those spices in a dubbel very much.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2005
a sim rate: A bit watery for a dark beer, though the flavour is quite full. The taste is a bit disappointing after the chocolatey aroma. There’s a bit of a bite at the finish. Standard for a dark (dubbel) beer.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 (Bottle33 cl) Not really brown, more like a deep amber with an extremely large sediment. Sweet, but not nauseating. Bitter, but not in a harsh way. Apparently with spices, but no sugar. It doesn’t say which spices. Distinct, fruity ale-touch, but I find it hard to define exactly which flavor. Splendid. 301203

Emil (6067) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2005
Dark hazy amber colour with a big baige head. Sweet caramel yeasty aroma and a sweet caramel malty dry taste. Medium to full body and a sweet dry finish.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2005
(Bottled) Darkish, reddish-brown color with a medium head (really wants to get out of the bottle, though). Sweetish-caramely aroma with loads of licorice and herbs. Malty, sweetish, herb-licourice flavor. Medium to full-bodied, slightly sugary, quite low-carbonated palate. A very nice and tasty dubbel, especially for the ABV - I like!

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2005
Hazy brown color with a small head. The taste is sweet light malty with light nutty and spicy notes. Finishes slightly sour.
