Smooth and inviting. This brew is balanced heavily toward the malt, lending rich caramel and dark fruit notes. The addition of dark Belgian candy syrup adds a rum, fig like character. Spicy, fruity and subtly warming on the way down.

ROGUE (2182) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - AUG 22, 2013
On tap at brewery (Abt 8). Pours a rich dark brown color with a small off white head that dissipates quickly leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is spicy and loaded with yeasty esters; bananas, caramel, and faint alcohol. Taste has ample dark fruits and rich maltiness; figs, prunes, spices, bananas and other yeasty notes. Caramel, toffee, fruitcake, booze hiding pleasantly just below the surface. Medium carbonation and body and slightly oily.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Sampled at the Funky 8 - Brooklyn, NYC. Another good one from Dock Street. Dubbels can often be a bit cloying but I thought this one struck a good balance. Plenty of brown sugar, rich malts, ripe semi-dark fruits. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Mellow warmth to finish, sugary malts, bread, caramel. Nice.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2013
750 ml capped bottle from Blue Dog, #76 of 180. Pours very turbid dark brown colored with 1-finger tan head that laces well. Nose is very fruity, with cherry and berry notes, funky candi sugary caramel malt, fig. Tastes very fruity, with notes of cherry, fig, rock sugary malt, some funk, and some woody notes. This one is very complex and very good.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2012
750ml bottle, labeled Abt 8, #139 of 180. The pour yields a deep, inky, plummy-mauve body with a short but steadfast head of super smooth, light khaki foam. Wet, rounded flares of lace escape the slow recession back into the body. The nose is classic dubbel, showing a very bready, toasty, malt-forward base with slightly boozy tendencies and tons of yeasty, dark fruit (think fig and raisin). There’s a hint of earthy, green happiness as well, lending balance. Flavors follow suit, dark and fruity, yet entirely bready and yeasty as well. Stewed raisin and fig are prominent. Some green, hoppy, earthy spicing settles in on the back end. Great balance. The palate is smooth, maybe a tab bit overly carbonated and warm for the style. Slightly boozy. Good brew overall. Close my eyes and I’d swear it was authentic Trappist.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2012
750 ml bottle. Deep purple brown with a creamy balsa head. Nose is brown sugar, raisin and fig with hints of damp basement. Medium body lightened with fluffy carb. Taste is cola, candi and raisin then dry and husky with hints of licorice, a bit burnt, port, nuts and wood. A lovely spot of brewing capturing the soul of a dubbel.
