kramer (4681) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. Doesnít look like much of a Dubbel in the glass, too thin and light in color. The nose isnít all that much either, just some nutty and chocolate malt with very minimal yeast influence. I never would guess that this was a Dubbel up to this point. The flavor is even worse, itís super thin and weak with a slightly sour twang on the finish. Thereís no body or yeast influence in this at all. Thereís not even any plain old actual yeast in here, at least they could have mucked it up by not filtering it so much. Thin and watery with fizzy prickly carbonation. Pretty poor example of the style, not sure why a brewery would put their name on this and call it a Dubbel.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2013
12oz bottle. Unfiltered orange-brown. Thin, patchy off-white head. Sweetish bubblegum with a hint of brown sugar aroma. Sort of pleasant, but thin and watery for the style certainly. Not so bad, but still sort of seems off in some respects..though not as blatantly as some of their other offerings. Very amateurish, unimpressive.

r464 (1781) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Malty with hints of cocoa, then a rush of Belgian tartness. Lingering finish thatís a bit gritty and has a hint of citrus zest.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Some dark fruits, caramel, chocolate, and a hint of spice.

jeremytoni (2926) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - OCT 5, 2013
From a bottle poured a brown color with a good amount of head. Spicy malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

DCLawyer (1312) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle-shaker. Amber brown with small tan head. Malt, yeast, spoiled red wine. Fairly poor, especially for the style.

Dacrza (450) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 15, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Affligem chalice... OCCASION: downloading S-O-M football... APPEARANCE: dense dark brown purplish body; quickly flatlining head that recedes like a bad hairline... AROMA: grape/wine/plum predominate; malty/yeasty barnyard funk also intrudes; malt is not sweet to the smell...PALATE: dry, swiftly thinning exit; a bit of buzzing at the start, but a flattened, iced tea feel pervades ...TASTE: plum and grape resins sulk through the throat; woody/grainy, with malty, bockish depth...not clean or fresh... OVERALL: the least "formidable" of the three Evil Genius beers in this sampler...an oddball mix of flavors make this less an abbey dubbel and more an ale behaving badly...as the others in the mix were fresh and pleasant, I deduce this beer really is just not a pleasure to drink...

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a redish amber with a small caramel colored head. Aromas faint of rasins, toffee, caramel, and some bready malts. Thin body and somewhat watery. Light caramel, dark fruit, and finishing with a hint of chocolate. Ehh not overly great but not terrible.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours hazy deep ruby with 1-finger khaki head. Nose is funky yeasty malt, red winey fruit. Tastes red winey fruity, mildly funky yeasty, with a cobwebby dank fruity finish. Decent.
