500mL bottle. Poured deep mahogany into goblet with champagne like head diminishing to nothingness. Aromas of nuts, yeast and caramel. Body on the thin side. Tastes not well balanced, not sure if it is the rice or buckwheat, but just tasted off to me.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Bottle. Pours reddish black with lacy beige head. The aroma is polyurethane and yogurt-covered raisins. The flavor is much the same, strong polyurethane, some raisin, a little bit of vanilla. This is pretty hard to drink.

wlajwl (4341) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Grape/dark fruit in the aroma, the appearance is dark amber and shows the secondary fermentation in the head. The taste is malty and shows again a flavor leaning towards grapes/dark fruit. The body, though is relatively thin. A good but not great due to the body Belgian ale.

obguthr (4389) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Bottle from Linvilleís in Poquoson VA: Neat toffee and date nose that slighty approaches butterscotch, kind of like rum. Ruby brown, thick tan head., good lacing. Sharply tart. Damn, is this a Flemish Red? Nope, the bottle says Dubbel., but I digress. Flavor is plum and cherries, but mostly plum. Alcohol is insistent given its actual content. There is also a faint but noticeable bleach like flavor. Body is weak as was the aroma. Kudos and bonus points for doing neat styles gluten free. Unfortunately, Dubbels just arenít the same, or as good, with a gluten free grain bill. If my diet required a gluten free diet, I would drink this often, though.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Pouring at Get Real New York. Deep brown pour. The aroma is quite sweet and plummy. Lots of plums and a bit of sweet rummy flavour. Thereís a bit of light molasses. The yeast has a lovely bit of estery character as well. Pretty solid actually.

j12601 (7395) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 4, 2011
Pouring at Get Real NY. Pours a deep brown, clear, with a thin beige head. Plum and prune, deep dark stone fruit and caramel malt. Sweet, spicy caramel and sweet phenolic yeast. Boozy, but not too hot. Long sweet dark fruit finish. For what this is, this is very good.

jrallen34 (3488) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2011
It pours a very dark brown with a 1 finger head with good retention and lacing. The aroma is really bad and strong. It just smells like bad alcohol mixed with bananas. The taste is even worse. There is light banana and lots of alcohol with a spit out bittereness. Mouthfeel is poor and this is not drinkable.

SHIG (3851) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle: Poured a dark rich brown color with a thick creamy light brown head. There was also light dusts of brown sediment in the head. Aroma is of dark fruit and alcohol. Taste is a bit watery and lacking of boady, taste is winey fruit. I wonder if this being an import had anything to do with the mellowness and/or the gluten free.

Labelnoir (9) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011 does not count
Dark grassy aroma, but still subtle. Dark red/black pour with thick puffy head. Sat dark and musty in the glass, barely translucent like cola or a Root Beer. Head stayed stiff until the bottom of the glass. medium sweetness, Cherry and Strawberry notes. Lively carbonation. Creamy texture, quick fading finish. i liked this beer at first, but as the pour went down it got warmer and a little more bitter. Not my favorite, ended it being glad it was gone. Next.

Pours a hazy brown and red. The NOT INCLUDED list is extensive. No crusteceans. Very tannic and wine like. cherry notes. Not a dubbel in my book. Maybe I got a bad bottle.
