OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2006
On draught at Winking Lizard in Columbus Ohio. Pours dark brown with a short offwhite head. Nice fruity aroma of belgian yeast a touch of bannana and maybe even a little cherry. Flavor starts off with sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, candy sugar, and some orange. Nice smooth palate very drinkable creamy and mouthcoating. A nice desert..

Bottled. Pours dark and a bit foamy, with a rocky tan head. Fruity aroma and flavor. A bit of a metallic aftertatse, though I expect it was the age of the bottle rather than the brewer at fault.

Grimbergen Dubbel, a nice darkred color and a nice appearance. The taste is a bit fruity - I can’t taste the chocolate, toffee taste like said in the description - but overall, this is a tasty beer.

tennisjoel (1161) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Fruit is the dominating feature here. Belgian yeast and some toffee aroma as well. I don’t detect any chocolate, as stated in the description. Very smooth, which is understandable given the relatively lower ABV compared to a lot of other Belgians. Interesting and would order again; but wouldn’t pay the $5 in a bar. Finish is more of the banana/clove like a wheat.

I got a friggin geyser out ot this little bottle. Be warned, open slowly. Clear, ruddy red with a thin, tight brown head. Spicy, yeasty heavy fruit aroma. Sweet and candy like with a distinct tangerine flavor. The retronasal effect is all alcohol. I don’t get any chocolate (like the commercial description states). Mellow bitterness and sweet caramel balance the alcohol.

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 28, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2006 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a very dark amber with a thick reddish-white head that lasts and leaves leggy lacing on the (trappist) glass. Has a sweet alcohol aroma. Tastes incredibly smooth throughout, with a citrus kick, complimenting the very bubbly body and mouthfeel. Alcohol is very noticeable. Towards the end, the taste turns a slightly smokey yeast flavor that fades evenly, with no bitterness at all.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Pours a dar blackish color with red tinge. Tannish creamy head, dissipated on me. Mildly citrus with some malt. I can smell some balsamic vinegar as well. Tastes overly yeasty for this type. pretty good, but landslides behind Chimay for my money.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2006
Overflows out of the bottle, pours a dark brown with a big fluffy tan head. Fruity with yeasty funky aroma, light sourness - touch of vinegar and tomato juice? WTF? Flavour is fruity, sweet caramel and malt. Fruity tang that is just ever so slightly sour and tart. Could be mildly infected ( a check of some other ratings mention similar flavours) or maybe just yeasty Belgian funk. Average to medium palate, touch syrupy. (3+) Bottle courtesy of 1FastSTI.

SHIG (3536) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Reddish dark brown with full light brown head. Bitter pungent smell. Sweet malty flavor very vs. the smell. Almost brown sugar tasting.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2006
Dark brown colour, averge off white head. Heavy sweet yeasty aroma, some malts as well. little alcoholic touch. Full body, smouth taste. Finish is dry malty. somewhat sweet alcoholic with a light bitter ending. Very enjoyable.
