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.

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 (4015) - 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.

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.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - NOV 11, 2006
Pours a dark brown with a light tan head. There is a little malt aroma but not much else. The flavor is malty with chocolate and toffee and has a mild finish with some brandy like charatersictics.

BenDover (201) - Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Had a strange odor. Pours a dark orange-brown, tan head. Very malty flavor, a bit too cloying. Not impressive.

brew4all (103) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Dark brown pour with a creamy head that lasts. Aroma was full with sweet maltyness and hints of fruit and spice. Tasted sweet with caramel and raisins. There is some nice flavors of fruit and malt as well. Finished well with a long dry sweet feel.

Brown. Begie head. Flowery and yeast aroma. It´s little winous. Flavor also spicey and sweet finish.
