KDorgan12 (169) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Memphis-Bottle. I had read about dubbels; how they relate to their cousins trippel and blonde adn how they were the more robust and complex. Maybe my palate isn’t there yet but I thought this one was a bit...I don’t know what. I probably served the damn thing too cold because after waming up a bit, it started to release some complexities. SOOO complex that I was not able to describe them...don’t blame me, I’d been drinken.

WeeHeavySD (3379) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 6, 2007
Draft @ Waterzooi Belgian Bistro in Garden City, Long Island. Pours dark amber with a half finger tan head. Nose consists of sweet malts. Taste was sweet, a sort of boozy even though its got a low abv. Ok beer not great.

troysworktable (109) - Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2007
White head. Good lacing. Clear, sparkling body. Dark brown color. Major aromas and flavors include black pepper, caramel, hay, light citrus. Primary flavor is the pepper. Sweet-to-dry finish that has a long duration. Good.

prosqtor (408) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2007
This is a good Dubbel. Sour notes throughout enhance the malt, and there is a hint of alcohol -- brandy I guess -- in the finish. Improved with some warming -- it was damn cold from the tap.

Flyer (118) - Hartland, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Looks beautiful in the glass, with rich crystalline red color and a nice head. Not much aroma. A good amount of nice dried fruit notes, with more of a brandy-ish quality coming through as I got further into the glass. More dried fruit in the finish, particularly some cherry and prune notes. I would’ve guessed this had more alcohol. Surprisingly clean finish for such a sweet beer, but still a little cloying by the end of the glass. Still, overall an above-average dubbel.

gpekar (489) - Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 A deep rich amber color, like a dark brandy with a wispy head. Crisp clean taste with a slightly sweet finish.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2007
Bottle. Brown and cloudy. Caramel and very yeasty with some nice dried fruit in there also, but the yeast is a bit much. It is not fantastic.

icculus801 (39) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - OCT 27, 2007
30cl bottle. Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Very floral aroma with notes of fruit. Sweet taste with no bitterness and a slight flavor of alcohol. Overall a very nice beer though a little sweet for my taste.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Bottled. Poured amber with a light brown head. Aroma was yeast, sour funkiness, and some barn yard action too. Flavor was yeast, malts, bread, and a few weaker toasted notes. Solid body.
