COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich malt aromas fill the nose. Flavors of biscuit and roast are rounded by a rich sweet malt character. This Dubbel is lightly hopped and finishes with Belgian yeast spice notes and a chewy finish. Available in 22oz. bottles and draught. ABV 7% IBU 20

Rather lackluster attempt at a Dubbel--fails to capture that Belgian character. The beer does pour an enticing, brassy body with a thick white, airy head. Scotch malting in the body, with a toasty malt and peat smoke nuanced body. The flavor is a bit disappointing. Crystal and toasted malts, some bubble gum. Doesnít really come off as a dubbel. Ok.

mcberko (5360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
On tap at TCBF, pours dark reddish brown. Aroma of caramel malts, candied sugar and dried fruits. Flavour of dark, dry fruits and caramel malts. Pretty uninspiring, but still solid dubbel.

raphael (838) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Powdered sugar, dried peaches, black pepper, all fairly understated aromas. exact same color as the piece of amber in front of me. no head. I taste a little bitterness, a caramel peach, a slight chemical dryness. very smooth on the tongue. sweet finish.

mensch (242) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Bright copper-brown colored, very thin head. Mild aroma of candied apricots. Medium bodied - well attenuated - in a more authentically belgian way than other american examples of the style. Very drinkable, but lacking the malt complexity or big punch of flavor needed to rate it higher.

obguthr (3435) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Good blend of white raisin, malt, and fig aromas. Clear tea colored, medium head, little retention, minimal lacing. Dried fruits, not a lot of candi or spice on the palate. Thin mouthfeel, lacks body.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2010
22 oz bottle - I donít drink a lot of Belgians, so Iím not sure what they are supposed to smell like. This one has a pleasant enough aroma. Orange with a white head. Roast flavor with a sweet aftertaste. Iím not a huge fan of the style, but I do like this beer.

BMan1113VR (7787) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 26, 2010
22oz 2010 bottle thanks to LtDan. Pours with a mostly clear copper body with an off-white head that fades somewhat quickly. Aroma is somewhat bland. Graham crackers, raisin, vanilla, cherry, caramel, toasty, fruity, bready. Flavors of honey, biscuit, fruit, vanilla wafers, plum, cherry and maple. Not a typical Dubbel at all. Also getting some strawberries and sugar on the finish. Graham crackers/bready. Not bad, but not traditional nor particularly memorable. Medium bubbles, creamy.

luttonm (2069) - Belgrade, SERBIA - SEP 26, 2010
22oz bottle. Really not bad, but fails in the way so many american versions of belgians go. Ruby brown pour with creamy, tightly bubbled head.. quite pretty. Nose is strong and herby, sweet malts, molasses. Sip is full and sharply flavored but still off. Could use more strongly present and flavored alcohol note. Finishes roasty and sweet, quite tasty. But overall a bit weak.

killjoy966 (677) - Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2010
22 oz. from Fred Meyer. A little fuzzy in my mouth, but one damn drinkable beer. Tastes sweet like candy and finishes dry like ginger ale. I still have no idea what a dubbel is "supposed" to taste like, but this is certainly a fun beer to drink.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours brilliant copper with a foamy 3 finger beige head. Aromas of roast malt and yeast/spice pepperiness. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Itís caramel with a lot of yeast/spice. Mildly pepper/hot. Bitter? More sweet than bitter. But the pepperiness seems to accumulate in the mouth. Itís really nice.
