COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double has undergone two fermentations, which gives this ale a chocolatey, toffee taste with a warming brandy-like finish.

Had this at the Rusty Bucket while watching OSU dismantle Washington. Great stuff. Beautiful brown with a thick head. Aroma minimal, baking bread. Orange taste along with chocolate in a sweet and sticky palate. Mn. hops.

A bit dark, not too sweet. A bit of head on darkish brown. Malty yeasty aroma. Balanced bit nothing too special.

This has a dark brass/brown coloring with a foamy head and good lacing. There is a light malty-yeast aroma. It is rich and frothy with a complex flavor - sweet chocolatey-fruity malt gives way to a light hoppiness and a pleasant tingle. This is robust and interesting. This lives somewhere between the old Belgian abbey and the American brewpub. It is also nice strait from the bottle. My appreciation of this one has been growing.

Typical abbey double with hints of chocolate and malt. Had it on tap and got a free class to boot.

Tranquillity (1446) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2007
Bottle. Dark raisin colour. Big bubbled in the medium-sized off-white head. Smoked aroma, some bbq flavours in there. Taste...well, mediocre Belgian.

Bullit (4108) - Burgos, SPAIN - AUG 28, 2007
Ruby colour, small off-white creamy head. Aroma is sweet, of butter and red fruits. Flavour is of chocolate, sweet caramel, butter and red fruits. Aftertaste is of sweet red fruits and malts. One-dimensional beer, but drinkable.

Pours a nice cherry color, slim tan head with residual lacing down the glass. Has a sweet fruity aroma, with some fruity flavors as well with a nice alcohol crispness.

Pretty middle of the road stuff for a real Belgian dubbel. Principal impressions were of sweet chocolate and prune juice and raisins.
