Alengrin (1294) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Dutch abbey beer, till 1952 brewed by the abbey itself. Tasted when the blonde version did not exist yet and it was simply called Gerardus Wittems Kloosterbier. Sticky, light beige, relatively stable head, colour deep, clear bronze. Aroma of caramel malts, banana, apple, strawberry, honey, sweet tobacco, liquorice, unfortunately some DMS as well. Light caramel malt taste, less body than expected from a dubbel, fruity, sweetish, rounded, some drying hops in the finish without becoming bitter. No less boring than e.g. Leffe Brune and the like.

didierlewallon (31) - ponferrada, SPAIN - AUG 3, 2014
Es una cerveza de color marrón rojizo oscuro con una espuma de color Beige. Aroma de Malta tostadas, caramelos y frutos maduros. Sabor a cereza madura, pasas, caramelo, jengibre y malta. El regusto es dulce y amargo al final. Una cerveza agradable.

Silvan7 (674) - Samarate, ITALY - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. Schiuma beige abbastanza fine abbastanza persistente. marrone con riflessi rubino, limpida.aroma di lievito belga, frutti rossi (ribes /mirtillo) , alcolica, un po’ di caramello, tostatura e lievito belga. Gusto abboccato, acidulo, alcolico sin troppo evidente, non ben nascosto come invece accade nelle dubbel migliori. calda, poco carbonata, meno rotonda di quello che ci si aspetterebbe. Abbastanza armonica, non molto equilibrata.

Icedwarf (301) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2014
Uitstekend donker bruin, bijna zwart bier. Smaak licht rokerig en licht bitter met zoet, caramel, chokolade. Blijft helaas niet lang hangen.

MichaelAwesome (3919) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 19, 2014
What a fine, unbalanced one. Fruity moments combined with a stronger ABV back and some raisins. Yeast, hops, some earth. Sweetish end with a bit of yoghurt in the end. Good one. Really good.

McTapps (3920) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 19, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep brown colour with steady low head and smooth body. Aroma of Belgian yeast and hops. Taste of light Belgian yeast, malt, barley, nuits, caramel and vanilla. Light hints of roasted barley. Nice beer.

stevoj (2087) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Catch up rating. Looks like a standard dubbel, dark amber/ruby with a slightly off white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of caramel malts, and some general dark fruity notes. Taste follows the smell really, some bready malts, sweetness and some fruitiness. Pretty good for a non-craft produced dubbel. Mouthfeel is medium to full, creamy and the carbonation is pretty low.

fkoolen (268) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2014
On tap @ de Poshoorn, Maastricht. Dark-red brown, beige creamy head. Aroma and taste have big raisins and figs tones, some brown sugar and a little malty and sour bitterness. Not too balanced, but enjoyable.
