thirstyrabbit (1742) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle. Murky light brown body, small head for the style. Weak aroma, mostly raisins and light cocoa. Quite watery mouthfeel and as a result of this neglect the 7,5% ABV comes sharply through. Taste has some more raisins and cocoa but the body is really light and unbalanced. Dry finish with cocoa powder and alcohol. This is clearly a below average Dubbel. Could have been more reasonable with the "reported" 6,5% ABV.

Bov (11974) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 18, 2015
courtesy of Thomas Krüsi - hazy dark brown beer with a little foam left; correct lacework; nutty and caraelish aroma, light toasted with notes of molasses; full-bodied, quite sweet and thick; long caramelish finish with notes of prunes and molasses - deceptively simplistic and raw

bonkiedeaap (634) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle from a local Albert Heijn. The beer is dark amber colored and pours a cream colored head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is very fruity and yeasty, with tones of cherries and strawberries, also a little raisins and caramel. In the background light tones of roasted malts. The taste is creamy and soft. The CO2 is well balanced with the full sweetness of candy and caramel. In the background some nice bitters are noticable. The finish is light bitter with tones of roasted malts and long noticable. Perfect dubbel, I want another one.
