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

On tap @ Bristol Blue Free House in Barcelona. Dark ruby clear body with a fluffy beige head. Spices, caramel and toffee nose. Sweet malts, clove and ripe grapes in mouth with a champagne-like sour finish (rather than brandy). Medium carbonation makes it a good beer for all ocasions. A good abbey dubbel.

II didn’t like this fellow at all. It’s even worse than the Chimay Rouge. Did not give me much pleasure to drink it. Seems to have begun appearing at supermarkets.

HighlanderOne (1237) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Poured from bottle. Gassy, cakey aroma. Mahogany, rough persistent head. Burnt malt, caramel, spice, banana in flavor. Feel is a bit on the bubbly side, but mellows out to a good finish. Nice stuff.

Bottle. Dark brown, ruby when held to light. Thick tan head. Not a lot of aroma; caramel, some chocolate. Flavor is pleasing but I found it to be one dimensional. Malty, not much spice or fruit. hardly any of that coveted belgian character detected. A touch more alcohol might have helped. Not the best of the dubbels but decent.

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 (3380) - 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.

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.

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.
