bhensonb (10814) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Aroma of malt and light hints of dark fruit. Color is deep brown with minimal head. Sweet beginning with grape, and perhaps a bit of dark stone fruit. There is a background of chocolate and caramel, but concord grape keeps coming to mind. Just a hint, mind. Really quite nice.

themadmumis (347) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2006
A great Dubbel. Pours cloudy amber with slightly off white head. Mild fruit and toffee aroma that tings the palate in the right places. Alcohol is blended very well. Not a strong Belgian but very well done. Great drinkability.

trafford (171) - Germantown, Tennessee, USA - OCT 3, 2006

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Draft PP Carlsbad. Deep reddish caramel color with a frothy ivory head. Burnt sugar, prunes and yeasty nose. Sweet with tons of dark fruit notes, raisins. Dry finish. Seems somewhat underwhelming but still enjoyable.

mbeem (104) - New Hope, Alabama, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Musky, raisiny color in the goblet. Very little head. Big yeasty nose with subtle malt. Flavor is rather disappointing for an abbey. Really lacks complexity. Disappointing.

Borup (5676) - Albertslund, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2006
75cl. bottle. Dark amber colour wit a nice thick head. Aroma of bread, malt and fruit. Flavour is fruity, malty and yeasty.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Translucent cherry-lacquered mahogany in color with a thick, one inch, frothy tan head. Broiled prunes and chocolate matchsticks kick start the aroma, followed by cocoa butter, cinnamon, anise, nutmeg and pepper. Brown bread and coriander round out the back end. Frothy foam lines the lips and imparts harsh sulfuric flavors when licked off, conjuring allusions to aluminum tin cans and mild pumpernickel that’s been spiced with ground cloves and nutmeg. Past the foam, it’s a prettier picture. Cloves and milk chocolate intertwine for a cocoa and hazelnut outcome. Mild, fruity accents come from prunes melding with blanched plantains. Supple liquid formation on the palate, with melting soda syrup running down the sides of the tongue. Mild sulfur still remains in the finish, with chocolate banana flavored barn planks and musty spice cabinets to see themselves out.
