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

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.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2006
pretty much what i expected. big beer but not as big as I had liked. Spicy and warm bicuit flavor that finishes very earthy.

cheap (4389) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2006
Pours very dark transparent brown. Smells sorta yeasty or possibly breadlike. A noticable flavor of slight hop or malt bitterness. I thought it to be a little strong. Finish lingers bitter for a moderate time. Grim blonde is much better tasting and its a tripel.

It’s a good belgian abbey dubbel. It is exactly what you would expect, a solid, pleasing beer and nothing more. Drink it when it’s cheaper than the next solid, pleasing dubbel.

Sugar, toffee, raisins, roasted banana, too estery, yeasty and fruity for my taste. Smarter than it’s the blonde companion tho.
