mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2008
Pours a deep near-black amber with a full head of big bubbles & lacing. Aroma is of apples, iron, antiseptic. Taste is pleasant if completely taken out of context. Green apple, light caramel, lots of alcohol. Tastes like a more interesting "cooler" than normally available, or a mass-produced dark apple cider. Nothing remotely resembling a dubbel, but Iím willing to forgive that. Lots of carbonation, and reasonably full-bodied. Again, completely out-of-context, this is a drinkable beverage, but not an abbey dubbel as I know it.

Cybercat (3783) - Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2008
Thought it would be appropriate to review this beer on Earth Day. Aroma is fruity and more like a brandy than a beer. Pours a nice dark translucent brown with a beige head that is thick but does not stick around for long. Flavor is rather like brandy or cider, very apply, not like a beer at all but still tasty. Texture is exceptionally smooth. This hardly seems like a beer at all, but that is not necessarily a bad thing!

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle with a best before date of 05/04/09. Large frothy, very fizzy tan head that mostly diminished, good amount of lacing, hazy, fast rising carbonation, and a brown hue with a red tint. The aroma consisted of malt, caramel, sweet, and dark fruits. The flavor was malt, dark fruits, caramel, and hints of spices. Slightly tingly mouthfeel and medium bodied. Easy to drink, but definitely not one of the better beers of this style that I have rated or enjoyed.

dyetube (1258) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2008
This beer pours black with a thick tan head leaving some good lacing down the sides. The nose is spices and malt. The flavor is a little to lively for a dubble if you ask me, although I kinda like it. Not really that bad when you consider this is brewed with no malt and no wheat. Cheers!

brenn79 (1665) - Idaho, USA - JAN 23, 2010
16.9 oz. bottle- Pours black with a decent head that dissipates immediately, the aroma is brown sugar and whiskey, not bad. The flavor is better than expected although not great. The only other gluten free beer iíve had is Redbridge so this is excellent compared. The flavor is bubbly like Champagne, weird and somewhat drinkable. Next up, Greenís Quest Tripel.

doublebock (520) - California, USA - APR 6, 2012
So this was my first Gluten free beer and it wasnít as bad as I thought it would be. Its certainly unfair to compare this versus other true Belgian dubbels or other dark true beers. Comparing it versus Redbridge would be a better way to rank this. With that caveat, lets get into it. Pours dark brown with a thick creme colored head. Toasted malt aroma with vinaigrette dressing notes. Flavor of molasses and raisins and red wine.

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.

SpringsLicker (3221) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 16, 2011
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.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2012
This is the best gluten free beer Iíve had - and thatís saying a lot. Iím actually enjoying it. Itís dark with a nice head. A good standard dubbel flavor, but you can recognize that something is a bit "off" and strange about it.
