marcus (6586) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours near black with a rich tan head and a fruity treacle aroma. There is a rich dark molasses flavor with a hint of chocolate and Belgian yeast ester. Finish is somewhat bitter. Overall, a pleasant drink.

bhensonb (11248) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours dark ruddy/orange/amber (against strong light) with a transient beige head. Aroma is malty, reminding of cola. Med +body. Flavor is malty, but hard to define hop seems to be keeping it rather dry. Think Iím getting Belgian yeast/esters. Indeed. Maybe this stuff is reminding me of Orval? Itís getting better and better. Just read the label. This may have been done with Chimay yeast! Suddenly I like it even more. :)

CampesinoTino (770) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2014
500 ml Bottle. Dark reddish brown pour topped with a sudsy layer of tan foam. Mild aroma of caramel malt, banana, dark sugars and clove. Taste is a blend of toffee, raisin and fig along with some toasted grain and dessert spice toward the end. The body is moderately thick and creamy with strong carbonation and a malty, spiced finish. The overall flavor doesnít quite have the right blend of Belgian yeast and ripe dark fruits that you expect from a Dubbel.

pushkinwow (2033) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
500ml bottle from CANBIF 2014. Dark and somewhat hazy mahogany with a tannish head. Mild Belgian yeast with some pitted fruit, balanced sweetness, reminds me of the Unibroue yeast a bit but a notch down on the intensity. High carbonation, moderate body, some sweetness, yeasty, becomes dry, little thin on the finish and a touch of cardboard. Still enjoyable though.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle:   Deep brown, tannish head and lacing.   A soft dark pitted fruit aroma.   A little musty, even Belgian like, enough to make me think it wasnít produced state-side.   Not as flavorful on the tongue, its there but a bit softer.   Does have a fruity sweetness that seems like candied plums.   Not a heavy Dubbel, not too bright, but smooth.     Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a little popsicle like sweetness.   Doesnít seem to have that heavy or rich feeling of a Dubbel.   Has a bit more fruitiness to it, perhaps in that artificial popsicle like flavor.   Tiz okay, for a minute there it seemed Belgian but towards the finish it kinda got a bit artificial.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
10oz

Brown color, with compact head. Light caramel aroma, some esters, cola. Overly carbonated; off dry mouthfeel; strong dark caramel flavor, but it gets too roasty and too dusty; fairly strong bitterness with dusty final too.
Confused, not exciting.

Fatehunter (1270) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours a thin head on a black body. The aroma is dark fruit, mostly plum and blackberry. The taste is also plum with some mild pine bitterness. The texture is softer with moderate carbonation. Itís an enjoyable drink, though itís missing the complexity to take it to the next level.

Bule (782) - California, USA - MAR 23, 2014
500ml bottle pours a brown color without much head. Strong flavors of malt and spices though a little watery tasting.

Dark brown pour from the bottle. Thanks Erika. Slightly bitter taste with plum and some licorice. Roasted malt finish. A little sweet. I enjoyed this.

RedSox2004 (1289) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Muddy brown color, two-finger tan head that dissipatedquickly and left little film or lace. Aromas of dark ripe fruit, raisins, toffee, and brown sugar. Flavor profile features dark fruit sweetness, brown sugar and yeast, just a whiff of earthy hop bitterness. Medium to full body, big carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a lingering sweetness in the finish. I expected more.
