3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at BT. Pours a nice clear clean amber with a thin lasting head. Aroma is caramel malts, toffee, sweet candi sugar, earthy tones, some fruity esters- plum raisin, even pear.. Flavor is molasses, toffee, light tobacco earthy hint, phenolic belgian yeast- peppery, spicy, but mostly clean, not too sweet overall, and a fairly dry finish. Pretty good for a dubbel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Dieu du Ciel, served in a tulip. Pours hazy mahogany with a small tan head. The head mostly fades but leaves a good amount of lace. The nose is roast malts, with maple and brown sugar, raisin and a hint of yeast. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout. It acquires a moderate hop bitterness towards the finish. The finish is long and malty. On the palate, it is medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent dubbel. It has beautiful complex malts but these are complemented by a nice hop accent in the finish. Another great beer from Dieu du Ciel. 2010-09-04

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark orangeyamber ale with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, a light herbaceous aroma of candy sugar, and a bit of treacle. In mouth, a rather interesting brew with candy sugar overlayed with sustained belgian hops, very strong herbal notes, rich and herbal, astringent. On tap at brewpub Oct. 31 2009.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ DDC. A dissapointing beer by this brewer. Maybe because it’s called a double I expected it to be one but it isn’t. Quite out of style, the nose is full of american hops, lacks malt sweetness in the nose and in the taste and lacks the promised "Belgian-ness" That being said it’s quite drinkable, just lacks identity.

Bottle - Pours a dark amber in color with a medium tan head that produces some nice lacing. Aroma is malty, slightly sweet with caramel and plenty of fruitiness. Spicy (hard to place) too. Goes down pretty easy... really good.
