BMan1113VR (7854) - 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.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
2012-03-09. Hazy dark amber body with a small beige head that fades. Mild aroma, light fruit and sugar notes. 6+ Flavour is similar, sugar, caramel, light alcohol, light tangy fruit note lingers. 6+ Average bodied palate is a bit light. Okay, but surprisingly mild overall for a 7% beer. Bottle shared by Blankboy

CaptainCougar (7130) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 22, 2011
22oz bottle: Pours a clear deep copper amber with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted caramel malty nose with a touch of tart dark fruits and yeasty esters. Starts with good fullness and toasted malty sweetness with a touch of tart fruits before a slightly drier biscuity finish. Could be a little smoother and hide its alcohol better, but still pretty true to style.

Ibrew2or3 (6849) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Bomber pours brilliantly clear deep copper with three minute long tan head. The aroma has a modest mix of berry, prunes and apple as well as lesser amounts of syrup covered pineapple and just a sense of yeasty spiciness off in the background. The taste is pretty similar and pulls together a pleasing array of prunes, cherries and apples as well as a slight sense of tannins coming from somewhere. To midway a bit of sugar caramel arrives as well as mild yeasty spice notes. This is an easy drinking brew were the spice and slight drying tannin like note do a good job to give the sweet fruitiness a smidgeon of balance.

DuffMan (6669) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2011
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy ruby-kissed amber with a rather low golden head that retains as a thin whispy patina of foam. Aroma is Sweet sponge toffee and vinous fruits with boozy undertones. Sweet flavour profile, rummy toffee, very fruity, with raisins, quince, and spiced pears. Surprisingly thinnish mouthfeel, but quite nice overall. Finish is peppery and dry with a boozy warmth.

mcberko (6306) - 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.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle:   Copper in color, thin whispy white fizzy head, sparce lacing.   Nose is alcoholic with some bready and dark pitted fruit notes.   Hard to do this one after having a German Doppel Bock.   Doesn’t have any sweet dark fruity basement notes on the tongue.   Pretty much just a malty, mealy, alcoholic presense.   Not belgian like, musty or... very Abbey Dubbel like.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Pretty much what I expected, an American bastardized version of an Abbey Dubbel.   Just doesn’t work at all...
