Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2009
In short: A peppery nutty dubbel style beer. Interesting twist on the style. Good.
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed when about 1+ year old
The look: Cloudy mahogany body topped by a beige ring of foam
In long: Nose roasted almonds and black pepper. Acceptable body and mouthfeel although a bit below average for a Belgium abbey style beer that are usually fuller and livelier. Taste is almonds in caramel, liquorice, black pepper, other unidentified spices. Surprisingly low on the fruity side. The peppery spicy finish brings a dryness sensation. I started to drink the bottle pretty quick but I had to slow down because the taste freshly crunched black pepper got too intense. All in all I thought this was a pretty decent beer and would probably get higher marks if it wasn’t brewed by a brewery whose name carries all the prestige of a Wal-Mart employee nametag.

(BBE 10/08) Dark brown colored with lasting big light brown head. Sweet caramelly aroma with dried fruits and appricot tones, yeast and spices also here. Medium bodied. Flavor is different with dominating sourness, and berries, aftertaste turns to slightly yeasty with dry yeast still.

MiP (14736) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2009
Bottle, 6.5%. Spicy aroma, dark malts, slightly sweet and vinous, hint of yeast. Hazy brown colour. Stable light brown head. The flavour is also spicy, has a hint of metal. Drier than the aroma lets on. Roasted and vinous finish. A bit of yeast, but tolerable.

oh6gdx (24346) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 18, 2009
Bottled (from lahoublonniere.be). Deep reddish amber colour, not much head. Very lively when opening the bottle so beware... Aroma is caramel malts, burnt sugar, some yeast, mild roast and dark dry fruits. Flavour is rye, sweet dark fruits along with some burnt sugar and also sour wooden notes.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2009
Brown coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a small off-white head. Rather yeasty, light malty caramel roasted aroma. Full palate. Finish is bitter, light herby and slightly malty touched. Not too bad.

sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy dark reddish brown with a small, tanned head. Aroma of sweet, caramely malt, and dark, dried fruit. Sweet, rye-puddingy-malty flavor with lots of raisiny dried fruitiness. Not cloying despite the sweetness. Medium body with soft carbonation. A really malty, traditional dubbel with delicious, not cloying sweetness.

TaxiDriver (1672) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle. A strong sweet smell, heavy malty and brown sugar. The medium large brown creamy-foamy head stays long, the body is clear and red. The taste is sour with a medium duration. Normal carbonation, the body is light to medium and fizzy.
