UPDATED: MAR 4, 2007 Bottle. A dark brown pour with a small head. Aromas of sweet malts and fruit - maybe blackberry. A malty, slightly sweet taste with some honey and chocolate. High carbonation. I’ve had better Dubbels.

Clear amber color. Coerced out a 1/2 inch light tan head. Mild spicy aroma. Sweet and grainy malts hit first providing a tasty balance. The sweetness persists and creates a apple plum flavor. I didn’t detect any hops. Nice beer. Just a tad too sweet for my taste.

Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2006
Bought at Penny Market (Italy) for the prize of 1.05 Euro!: Brown with reddish hew. Aroma of dark fruits & roasted malts. Medium sweetness. Texture is medium filling to almost watery. Medium carbonation. Enjoyable but defenetly needs a kick of everything- no force. Finish is rather short. An abbey ale that is slight beneath average for its type!

Dorwart (2342) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Large light brown fluffy head of large bubbles. Kind of looks like a root beer float head. Good carbonation. Roasty aroma with some vinuous notes and raisins. Color is a dark mahagony brown. Sweet and fruity flavor with more grapes and raisins. Noticable alcohol presence. Crisp and fizzy in the mouth. Light roastyness at the finish with a lingering alcohol warming and little sweetness. More raisins. A pretty good double and seems like more than the 6.5% abv.

Brown body with reddish tint and a lasting, off-white head. The aroma is banana, cloves, raisins and candi sugar. The flavor is golden raisinsand plums, candi sugar, light spice. The mouthfeel is soft and smooth.

Double has undergone two fermentations, which gives this ale a chocolatey, toffee taste with a warming brandy-like finish. Muy afrutada (caramelizada), pero muy buena.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 24, 2006
in the bottle from gomer’s parkville. pours a mahogony red with a beige head. just a beautiful beer. has a very subtle vinegar aroma. the flavor is a rich roasted fruity caramel. there’s a strong candy sweetness to this beer. it has a great body with an interesting cidery finish. and outstanding beer for $1.99.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Pours dark dark brown, nice almond head. Not very sweet like most abbey’s but more like a brown ale with balls, some dark fruits, but mostly a toffee, and roasted malts, very basic but just a good drinkable beer.

Brown as it should be, sweet malty fruity, raisins, nutty with a light spiciness, body suprisingly thin. I could liken it to a brown ale fermented with belgian yeast, or just a light version of a abbey dubbel. Not too bad and won’t kick your butt.
