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

Dark brown colour. A strong Belgian beer, but not that strong. So easy to drink. Good looking, though.

bitbucket (2164) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a thick and substantial off-white head. Sweet plum and brown sugar nose with a touch of spice almost as an afterthought. Medium body and fine carbonation. Sweet taste, of raisins marinated in alcohol. I’m not tuning in to the chocolate. Dry spicy finish.

11.2 ruby brown color pours clean with an off-white head. not a particularly good looking one at that. nose is quite tart and fruity, almost sour even. slightly grapey, with raspberry tones. clean and fruity with a solid caramel middle. carbonation is a bit prickly. a good starter belgian, not very complex or exciting.

Didnt think too much of this beer. It was kind of dark for what i would have expected. Not one of my favorites

Pretty good but not great... I had the Bruno in Belgium a few years ago and it was way better. Still, decent dubbel.

Draft at Eulogy. What better place to have a belgian, but in a Belgian bar. Pours a dark brown in color with a cloudy white head. The aromas are amazing with a mix of fruit, chocolate, and hop. On tasting, the flavors go through many levels from fruity maltiness to a sweet chocolate, finishing with a warm brandy-like note. The mouthfeel is creamy and full. An amazing Dubbel.

Carlus12 (361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2007
Bottle @ Lowlander. Pours dark brown with foamy beige head. Aroma is earthy / malty / plums. Taste is creamy with some alcohol / dark fruits. Very drinkable.

jgb9348 (5430) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Deep dark coloured body with a very thin off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and a bit of sweetness with not much else. Light -bodied; Sweet flavours up front with pit fruits and a good dose of malt and yeast follow behind. Aftertaste shows more of the same, not much malt and even less sweetness. Overall, a fairly bland and tasteless double, with less-than-desireable flavours. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Joe’s Place in Oklahoma City (Norman), Oklahoma on 07-October-2007.

Dark brown with medium head. Sweet malty aroma with plums. Again very sweet flavor that lacks complexity.

Irishmist (6) - USA - OCT 7, 2007 does not count
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
