Pours clear dark brown with garnet highlights under a tan head. The aroma is mostly molasses with a touch of alcohol. The palate is very light, especially since I generally find more body to darker beers. Sweet tastes more like a soda or a cola drink than a beer. I suppose for a Gluten free beer itís o.k.

TheBeerGod (5329) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Bottle. Opaque dark brown with a short beige head. Aroma is dark fruit, funky yeast and and a sweet malt-like aroma. Taste is mainly reminiscent of dark fruit and sweet malt with caramel and yeast notes, however, it is obviously lacking something taste-wise. Body is medium but the carbonation is soft and like the taste, the body is missing something. Ends with more dark fruit notes, sweet grains, light yeast and candyish flavors.

Also has that real old painty aroma. Flavor is a bit sweet, not real interesting, another average-at-best beer that is way overpriced.

Iíve had a couple of these now and they all taste pretty much the same. I donít think itís fair comparing them by style though. They should have their own category. This isnít bad for a gluten free.

DigitalMan (193) - Idaho, USA - OCT 9, 2010
"Gluten Free". Looks and pours just like a Coca-Cola, including the different kind of extra-poofy "head". Definitely has pretty much the right dubbel aroma, but is not quite right (though Iíve had worse non-gluten-free!). Flavor is OK, better than expected. A bit thin in the mouthfeel department. Overall, so-so, but if you couldnít drink gluten, this might be a good choice.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2010
500 ml bottle from the Four Firkins. Dark brown, almost black pour with a big fluffy tan head. Aroma is very much like a standard Belgian dubbel but a little toned down. Notes of caramel, dark fruit. Flavor pretty much the same, only much more toned down. Tastes pretty good, just not too intense of a flavor and the finish doesnít really bring very much. Much better than what I expected though.

llcooldave (1116) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Pours a cloudy chocolate brown color. Aroma is a surprising sweet & creamy with a touch of chocolate somewhere in the background. Flavor is hard to place; creamy citrus I want to say... Overall, itís better than I expected. Very easy to drink.

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark red amber with a light beige head. Nose is sweet with some caramel and fruit. Taste is sweet with more fruit and caramel, somewhat watery for a dubbel. This wouldnít be my top choice, but itís OK and would be a good choice for people who canít have gluten.

Strykzone (5062) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Rather dark brown with red and a thick uneven tan head. Nose is complex fruit with both citrus, dark, and passion, molasses. No malt is tasted. That must be a gluten free thing. Molasses, again that complex fruit, sourness, brown sugar, caramel. I am thankful to be able drink beer with glutens. This falls short of other dubbels.

BB 9/16/09 Pours medium mahogany w/tan head. Large bubbles disappeared quickly Very sweet nose. Tastes like cheap spoiled wine-hope this is due to the age-this oneís a drain pour-will try a fresh one out of curiosity
