The whole purpose of buying the boat in the first place was to get the ladies nice and tipsy top side, so we can take them to a nice comfortable place below deck, and you know, they can’t refuse...because of the implication..

BMan1113VR (7916) - 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.

drowland (7876) - Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2011
10/31/11. Boo. 22oz bomber. Dark brown pour, clear red pour with a small khaki head that cuts fast and laces a little. Fruity bubblegum aroma with apples, berries, and a bit of banana. Really sweet, fruity flavor that touches on berries, lemon peel, yeast, and roasted caramel. Meh.

Plovmand (7810) - Helsinge, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle. Bit hazy amber pour with a medium off white head. The aroma is sweet mlayt, caramel, yeast, spices and some ripe fruit. The flavour is sweet malt, fruit, caramel and light acidic. Light bitter finish.

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.

PorterPounder (7233) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Pours a dark copper with a sticky, bubbly, off-white head that sticks around a while. Aroma is somewhat neutral, pick up some light raisin-like notes - but not very prominent. Flavor is mellow but nice. Pick up some Christmas-like spices, light toffee, some nectarine-like fruitiness and just a hint of chocolate. Not chock full of flavor but session worthy. Mouthfeel is warming and thick.

blankboy (7171) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2012
My bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & mabel. March 9. Pours a dark amber with an average size diminishing off-white head. Quite a mild aroma of caramel malt, fruit and yeast Flavour of caramel malt, fruit, yeast and some sugary sweetness. Average to medium bodied. Just O.K., pretty mild for a Dubbel.

CaptainCougar (7133) - 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.

OK.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear red/orange pour with a thin off-white head. Dank and musty malt aroma with some banana. Cloying sweet flavor with caramel, cherry and banana character. Not my thing.
