turdburglar (3) - Queens, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2008 does not count
This beer is vastly underrated. A notch below the Trappist beers, but definitely an outstanding Belgian dubbel.

GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2008
Pours a clear deep cherry reddish-brown with a large foamy cream colored head. Strong malty notes in the nose with toffee and candy. Lively malty body with a good dose of hoppy bitterness followed by some toffee. Thin finish, but warming.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2008
More potent in aroma and flavor than the Blonde. Aroma and flavors are of a belgian candy sweetness (close to toffee). Good warming finish.

shadey (2068) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Small bottle purchased at BOTW and consumed right away. Dark garnet red color with a thin head of white film, spotted with heavier spots of white cream. Aroma is rich, sweet, toffee. Flavors are similar. Pretty nice stuff. I’m impressed by the brewer. Clean and easy to drink.

kappldav123 (5826) - GERMANY - JAN 16, 2008
The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Creamy foam. Tastes delicious. Strong, a little bit alcoholic, very drinkable. Good beer!

Bottle from quagmite.I actually liked this beer more than I thought I would. I’m not the biggest fan of the Belgian style but this came in a trade. Pleasantly surprised. Beautiful dark reddish murky brown pour with a nice head and good lacing. Smells of dark fruit and brown sugar and the same elements come out in the taste as well. This is actually pretty good. I don’t enjoy Belgians very much but this is good. Don’t know that it belongs with some of the others that I’ve tried like Rochefort 10, De Dolle Stille Nicht or Chimay Blue but it is a good beer and I enjoyed it. Thanks to quagmite for the bottle!
