thebeertourist (4755) - 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.

Jerre (2364) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2006
Brown with beautiful red shine; good carbonation to dense, creamy yellowish head, lacey. Again very much (sweet) chocolate, and, blood-like ironoxyde in the taste. The liquor - or a head stabiliser? A bit fizzy. Light bodied for a dubbel. No discernible aftertaste, even not warming up.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 28, 2008
Appearance: mahogany color (beautiful). Medium head, lasting and with beige color. Aroma: to caramel malts and citric-herbal touches from hops. Yeast smells with fresh note, this inject vanilla’s reminiscences. Also, chocolate aroma reminiscences. Flavor: sweet start, not sickly, from toast and caramel malts. Intensive and nice chocolate’s reminiscences. Others flavor like milk, mocha and cream. The liquorness and cacao taste remember me a truffle; while that the yeast inject sponge-cake’s reminiscences. Light berries note. Chocolate aftertaste. Palate: medium to full body with silky and oily texture. Light to medium carbonation. An incredible, intensive and nice chocolate taste. Balanced and with own-character. Great beer.

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!

Cloudy brown color; thin creamy head. Bice aroma, malt, perfumy, caramel, candi sugar. Medium body structure; mainly caramel taste, with a touch of roasted malts, strong bitterness (with light traces of hops), some steady woodiness. Solid and good.

09/10/2010 33cl bottle @ BLES beerfestival

note: according to the beer list provided at the festival, this beer was brewed with a new recipe.

Pours a little cloudy reddish to brown beer. Beige creamy adhesive head. Aroma has flowers (almost soapy or perfume like) and red fruits. MF is ok, medium body, little watery texture. Taste has lots of red fruits (strawberries, cherries). Little acidity, some roasted malts and caramel. Aftertase has red fruits again, citrus and honey. Overall a very fruity beer, without being too sweet. Very nice.

77ships (3530) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2013
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Bier Central. Reddish murky wood-ish, not a big fan of the colour with a slight beige head. Taste is of sweet malts, concentrated brown sugar, raisins, caramel, herbs, touch toast until overtaken completely in thick slightly marinated in aalchol dried dark fruits mixed with a good chunk of wild berries. Med. slightly messy body, not bad.
