Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2006
Bottle. Classic Abbey Dubbel, and what a Dubbel it was. Dark brown in colour with a sparkling look to it. Head was off-white and medium. Didn’t last that long. Aroma was clear caramel/toffee, roasted, spicy, yeast, maybe some fig/plum/dry fruit. Not much hops to detect. But still very balanced. Flavour was medium sweet. Medium bodied with a sweet caramel roasted like finish. Great Dubbel.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Bottle: Crimson bourgondy color with a light off-white head and good lacing. The nose is sweet and spicy with light fig and brown sugar/dough and rye notes. Very nice and clean as dubbels go. Malty and lightly roasty with a toasty and zesty mouthfeel. Dark caramel and plum in the flavor. Nice rich and yeasty. Good belgian, missing a bit of umami, but it’s a low alcohol one, so that’s not as crucial. Nice.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2006
pretty much what i expected. big beer but not as big as I had liked. Spicy and warm bicuit flavor that finishes very earthy.

cheap (4005) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2006
Pours very dark transparent brown. Smells sorta yeasty or possibly breadlike. A noticable flavor of slight hop or malt bitterness. I thought it to be a little strong. Finish lingers bitter for a moderate time. Grim blonde is much better tasting and its a tripel.

Jayb0 (1022) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2006
It’s a good belgian abbey dubbel. It is exactly what you would expect, a solid, pleasing beer and nothing more. Drink it when it’s cheaper than the next solid, pleasing dubbel.

Sugar, toffee, raisins, roasted banana, too estery, yeasty and fruity for my taste. Smarter than it’s the blonde companion tho.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 17, 2006
Pours out a dark, deep amber color, almost the color of fake maple syrup (think Log Cabin) with a minimal head. A candi sugar sweet nose, perhaps a bit of toffe with a rummy, raisny kick. Flavor profile is pretty much the same, mostly sweet from the sugar and malts with a bit of dark fruit in there. Smooth mouthfeel, nothing to harsh. Overall, it’s a nice beer to drink. Not extraordinary, but good.
