thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 5, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and brown malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt and sweet. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Cloudy brown pour with a 3/4 inch off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt and dark fruits with an unexpectedly heavy dose of hops. Flavor is much the same. Rich and pleasantly warm. Very nice.

Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
[thanks, Skou, for bringing this back for me]
Pours muddy brown with a very impressive, creamy, yellow-beige head. Aroma is quite sweet, some rye-bread, honey, Belgian sugar and raisins. High carbonation, frothy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet and malty, but with a fine, balancing dryness. A touch of dark chocolate and plums balance it well. Still not a particularly impressive dubbel.

badlizard (5537) - Berkeley, California, USA - APR 29, 2009
Hazy brown with a fizzy tan head. Sweet grain and alcohol aroma. Bread honey and toffee taste with an earthy finish.

maltdog (619) - Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2009
"Hoppy Belgian dubbel." Best before date June 2009. Pours a vivid rust red, topped by tawny marshmallow crme. Spicy-fruity aroma features plum and chocolate, grape flavored gum, mace, and wood. There is a sharp chemically scent I was going to call "artificial cilantro", but a more accurate name is "spray-on oven cleaner." Rather timid flavor... candied fruits, marzipan, and "burnt aloe" spicyness. Lots of quote marks in this rating. Thinnish, wheaty mouthfeel. Overall very restrained, and VERY weird.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2009
Dont remember how it pours. Aroma of grapes, caramel, raisin and light toast. Tastes maltier with toast, caramel, grapes, and a kinda tart yeast presence. Finishes toasty but still its fruitier than I would like. Medium bodied.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 1, 2009
(750ml bottle, BB 06/2009) Pours a hazy amber body with a small beige head. Aroma of yeast, raisins, baked apple, caramel, and mustiness. Flavor of yeast, raisins, roasted malt, light banana, and caramel.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 21, 2009
In the bottle at the 2009 Crescent Moon Extreme Beerfest. Pours a dense dark amber color with a thick off white head. Rich wine-like and fruity aromas. Thick sugary raisins and plums to the flavor with a mild chocolate maltiness. Chewy.

travita (4150) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The smell is raisans, fruits, malts, yeast, and spices. The look is amber in color not too much head. The taste is yeast, fruits, spices, raisans, and plums, and sugary.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a deep amber, hazy, with beige head. Aroma of some citrus, funk, and malt. Mouth feel is light-medium body with low-medium carbonation. Overall, not bad!
