Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2007
11.2 oz. Bottle. Good fruity plumb and cherry wine aroma. Amber body and foam gusher after removing cap. Big off white head that settled to like a manhole cover on top of body. Flavor was yeasty bread and alcohol. Mild fruity flavors present, was looking for more fruit from what I got from aroma. Decent brew.

jason (1686) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Bottle from Stoutlover, thanks! Pours a clear amber body with decent thin sized head and little carbonation. Aroma is of candied fruit, plums, and cherries. Taste is the same. Slightly sweet and smooth with a thin mouthfeel. Not bad.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a copper/brown, initially with about a half inch of cream colored foamm, but soon only a thin film. Spotty lacing as you sip from the glass. Nice fruity characteristics from Belgian yeast in the aroma. The intitial taste of sweet whole grain bread blends with honey, vanilla, and cherry pit. Sweet in the finish with oak and fruit. A ssggestion of alcohol in the aftertaste becomes more prominent as it warms. Medium body, very mild carbonation.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2006
Bottle. Classic Abbey Dubbel, and what a Dubbel it was. Dark brown in colour with a sparkling look to it. Head was off-white and medium. Didn’t last that long. Aroma was clear caramel/toffee, roasted, spicy, yeast, maybe some fig/plum/dry fruit. Not much hops to detect. But still very balanced. Flavour was medium sweet. Medium bodied with a sweet caramel roasted like finish. Great Dubbel.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Bottle: Crimson bourgondy color with a light off-white head and good lacing. The nose is sweet and spicy with light fig and brown sugar/dough and rye notes. Very nice and clean as dubbels go. Malty and lightly roasty with a toasty and zesty mouthfeel. Dark caramel and plum in the flavor. Nice rich and yeasty. Good belgian, missing a bit of umami, but it’s a low alcohol one, so that’s not as crucial. Nice.
