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

Now one of my favourites - malty flavor is accented by a sweet, smooth aftertaste. Creamy and malty - great body - not bitter - tastes great straight from bottle also

Dark brown body with decent tan head. Nose and flavor of dark fruit, and a little chocolate. Simply delicious.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
