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

charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2007
11.2 oz bottle into a goblet. Has a fantastic aroma of communion wine, ripe grapes and figs. The taste has a similar dark and ripe fruity taste with a touch too much sweetness. Thankfully it finishes a bit dryer with some complex notes of roasted grains, caramel and soft yeast.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2007
bottle. average to small tan head (mostly dissapated) into dark brown body. Aromas of brown sugar, ripe dark fruit, goes along with the brown sugar but there is a tootie rollness in there. light body with watery texture, but duration lasted longer than expected. not bad dubbel.

BelgianBeerGal (3384) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 bottle poured into Grimbergen glass in Paris. Darker orange and gold colour with a medium head that quickly disappears. Nice sweetness in the taste. Good, but not great dubbel.

Arayaga2 (1905) - portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Appley amber color with quickly fading white head. Tart aroma with a bit of caramel, apples, spices, and a hint of booze. Taste is same, but weakly so, and only minimally carbonated. $3/11.2oz

I was at a party last night, which partly turned into a Dubbel style tasting with a mixed case of great beer, including this one. As I was given a goblet and a 3 oz pour, I had to pay attention, and this one was poured after the hop laden Allagash Dubbel. I liked the semi-sweet malty taste that came from the dark orange and brown ale that I was grasping for some keyword to exploit in its name. The best I could do was simply say it was "lazy" and slightly sour. I wold love to find this on tap to reveal it’s malty nature.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Pours a very dark black/red with a good amount of head that goes along with a somewhat milky mouthfeel. Aroma and taste is of mocha and caramel, bittersweet but not extreme to either end.

On tap Winking Lizard Cleveland. dark ruby, beautiful lacing, tastes like cherry sherry, disappointing soapy finish.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Pours a very dark ruby that is clear with a big creme head that falls fairly quickly but leaves a LOT of lacing on the way down. Musty yeast on the nose that seems to have a dusty tone to it. Metallic tone to the flavor overall with a touch of sugar and a tang on the middle. Feel is low on carbonation and seems to border on watery. Drinkable, yes. A good dubbel, but it didn’t exactly blow my socks off.

nickspies (78) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Very nice plum and raisin smell. Light brown to deep amber color. Great dried fruit flavor...sweet...but strong malt backbone. A little thin, but holds the flavor well enough. Not my favorite style, but good nonetheless.

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle. Poured a massive white head which takes some time to go. Dark brown colour, lovely aroma with some sweetness, quite smooth. Good example of a Dubbel.
