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.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2007
[bottle] Pours a very clear ruby color. A short-lived tan head falls quickly, leaving some decent lacing. Very nice malt and sweet alcohol aroma. Plum, raisin and toffee flavors, along with some considerable alcohol warmth. Finishes with plenty of residual sweetness and some interesting fruity esters. Not the best Dubbel in the world, but a very nice addition to the weak NH bottle selection.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2007 pours dark brown with light creamy head. not very complex or balanced. sweet up front and on the finish. tastes very similar to apple juice needs something to take it to the next level

imdownthepub (11384) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
Bottled, filtered, 330ml at A ge Pannes, Schin op Geul, NL Limburg. Dark brown with cream head. Another I thought I had rated in the past, thank god for a PDA and a beer list. Sugary sweet dubbel without too much to overcome the sweetness. There is some malty fruitiness if you try and a touch of deep roasted malt, but I am beggining to struggle with the Belgian taste for sweetness.

acearl (424) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Listed ad Grimbergen Abbey Brown on tap Ludwigs Garden in Philadelphia, PA...Mostly brown with a bit of red clear hue with creamy tan head, smells sweet a little like Elmers glue, sweet taste brown sugary, not too sweet, nice palate, so hard to find a good Dubbel this really wasn’t the one.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2007
Bottle. Dark chesnut cola-ish colour murky body. Small loose tan head. Strong lacing on the glass. Sweet orange-peel candy, malty flavours. Citrus zest. Sweet candy finish into malt. Great desert beer, maybe a bit too sugary.

Braudog (6014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Bottle: Poured pitch black with a thin off-white head. The aroma is almost one of black cherries. Similarly the flavor is deep and rich but with a dark fruity riptide of pull, with a cloying dry body. Delicious on a thunderstormy evening. (#3049, 8/5/2007)

Kirill (277) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2007
despite the description all i smell is hops, copper look with decent head though. aside from the fruit there are indeed hints of chocolate, and this is a nice light beer to casually drink.

madquacker (1072) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2007
An excellent balance between alcohol, brandy and a drinkable beer. Nice dark brown look and a spicy head. Tastes of chocolate and spice. Not overpowering, Very well done.
