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.

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 (5565) - 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.

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

Dark brown body with decent tan head. Nose and flavor of dark fruit, and a little chocolate. Simply delicious.

charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2007
11.2 oz bottle into a goblet. Has a fantastic aroma of communion wine, ripe grapes and figs. The taste has a similar dark and ripe fruity taste with a touch too much sweetness. Thankfully it finishes a bit dryer with some complex notes of roasted grains, caramel and soft yeast.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2007
bottle. average to small tan head (mostly dissapated) into dark brown body. Aromas of brown sugar, ripe dark fruit, goes along with the brown sugar but there is a tootie rollness in there. light body with watery texture, but duration lasted longer than expected. not bad dubbel.

BelgianBeerGal (3722) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 bottle poured into Grimbergen glass in Paris. Darker orange and gold colour with a medium head that quickly disappears. Nice sweetness in the taste. Good, but not great dubbel.
