Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2011 Thanks to Homerwantsbeer for sharing a bottle. Pours a reddish-orange color with a medium off-white head that that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of bananas and spices. Medium body with a sweet fruity character that has malt and yeast notes. The finish is caramel malt and bananas. Decent overall.

jercraigs (7456) - 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 (7129) - 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 (6767) - 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.

Bottle. Amber-bronze beer with a dark cream colored head. Malt and light caramel aroma with light spice and light dried fruit. Dried fruit and caramel flavor with spice. Medium bodied. Dried fruit and light yeast lingers with caramel and spice.

DuffMan (6453) - 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.

5000 (6180) - 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...

after4ever (6059) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2010
22. Pours a nearly clear rubied dark amber. Set to the side, it looks muddy brown. Up to the light, it looks like a glittering pendant from an Indiana Jones movie. Loose tan head falls quickly to a loose smear of film. Big bready nose, smells like brown bread that somebody knocked some sugar into without realizing it and baked it anyway. Creamy medium body. Very little carb, especially for a dubbel. Brown bread, caramel, brown sugar, and a little bit of a ginger snap effect on the mid palate. Mildly sugar and spicy finish. Clean and well made but nowhere near the power and complexity of a world classic, especially given the depth and intensity of the tools (e.g., yeast flavors) available to the brewer with these. But that’s the trick. Those yeasts aren’t always actually available. So you get this nice bready flowery business too often.
