Pretty generic for the style, taste is about what you’d expect. Some banana and clove, honey malt, and I get a bit of bubblegum too. Not great, but certainly drinkable. And only $8.99 for a six pack; you won’t find too many Dubbels for that price.

Very good aroma and flavor. Has a sort of grainy Barleywine nose to it. Belgian candy taste and pretty strong alcohol scent.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Alexei and Raphaela’s. Thanks Trapped. Headless clear brown. A little roasty, some burnt caramel aroma. Sweet burnt caramel taste. Fizzy, light-bodied, a little alcoholic finish. Feels amateurish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear red-brown, quick off white head, light lacing and slight retention. Aroma caramel and raisin. Taste is sweet, slightly sour. Medium body, moderate carbonation, soupy mouth feel. Finishes long. Tasting notes of raisin, brown sugar, toffee, licorice, allspice and bread. Not as sour as I’d like but a solid, interesting take on a Dubbel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark chestnut colored beer with a thin off white head that disappears immediately. Nose of brown sugar, stewed prunes, and toffee. Flavor starts with a surprising nutty almond flavor that gives way to raisins, caramel, and a subtle sourness. Finishing with a mild bitterness, this is a tasty beer.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Brown/copper body with a short off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Mild aroma caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. No Belgian yeast characteristics. Taste of plastic and chemicals dominate resulting in no chance for the malts to come through (as they should in a dubbel). Slick and oily on tongue in the finish. Meh. Any good qualities? Not in this drain pour of a beer.

Very spicy with prominent dried fruit flavor and aroma. Enjoyable dubbel, slightly too much fruit for my liking
