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

Flyer (118) - Hartland, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Looks beautiful in the glass, with rich crystalline red color and a nice head. Not much aroma. A good amount of nice dried fruit notes, with more of a brandy-ish quality coming through as I got further into the glass. More dried fruit in the finish, particularly some cherry and prune notes. I would’ve guessed this had more alcohol. Surprisingly clean finish for such a sweet beer, but still a little cloying by the end of the glass. Still, overall an above-average dubbel.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 A deep rich amber color, like a dark brandy with a wispy head. Crisp clean taste with a slightly sweet finish.

Bottle. Brown and cloudy. Caramel and very yeasty with some nice dried fruit in there also, but the yeast is a bit much. It is not fantastic.

icculus801 (39) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - OCT 27, 2007
30cl bottle. Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Very floral aroma with notes of fruit. Sweet taste with no bitterness and a slight flavor of alcohol. Overall a very nice beer though a little sweet for my taste.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Bottled. Poured amber with a light brown head. Aroma was yeast, sour funkiness, and some barn yard action too. Flavor was yeast, malts, bread, and a few weaker toasted notes. Solid body.

emacgee (4427) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Pours a reasonably dark ruby brown. The head is a little frothy beige. The aroma is a little subdued. A little sweet, some fruit, some must. The flavor is a mellow fruit, not too impressive, some alcohol, and a little must. I’ve had better.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2007
The color was medium ruby brown. The head was creamy, light biege, and laced. The aroma was dark fruit , sweet malt, and chocolate. The flavor was sweet malt, a kind of rootbeer taste, and some hops. The palate was lively. The finish was warm but not as long-lasting as i would have liked.

FatPhil (11529) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 26, 2007
UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 330ml bottle (5:3:6:2:11=2.7)
Rich brown, quickly dissipating head.Slightly metallic bitter aroma, but also sweet and fruity. Lively in the mouth. Nice aspect of the taste include a raisiny sweetness and both richly roasted ans sweet notes of malt, but alas that’s overshadowed by a thinness, too harsh alcohol, sickly sweetness, and something quite metallic. Falls far short of the better dubbels.
Rerate: Tap (Hovipoikka, Tampere) (4:3:4:2:8=2.1)
Eww, sour aroma. Watery palate, positively thin, almost fizzy too. Unpleasant messy roasted malt taste. Only positive is that the alcohol’s hidden. However, I’d not even think about drinking enough of this to get drunk, as it’s so unpleasant.
Unwanted rerate: Tap (Belmontas, Vilnius)) (7:4:5+:3+:11+=3.0+++)
Super sweet raisiny berry aroma, fruitcakey, hedonistically very nice, if a bit bizarre in its caricature. Tastes like a typical boring belgian brune - bready sweet, a bit yeasty, yet also cleanish. Reminds me of a softer sweeter version of the tongerlo I used to have in the Daily News at 7am. Before food, this was quite full. After food, it seems weak.

Bottle. Clear brown colour with large creamy off-white mostly lasting head. Fruity aroma with notes of chocolate. Sweet spicy flavor. Oily palate.
