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

Bottle. Has a dark reddish brown look with a light frothy head. Aroma is nice with a sweet perfume of roasted hops and a hint of chocolate. Nice carbonation and the commercial description is fairly accurate for taste. A very pleasant beer.

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown with a reddish glare. A medium, lacing head on top. Sweet, bready aroma. Sweet flavours, some roasted notes, well-balanced with good breadiness. Well-carbonated, slightly watery. A mass-produced abbey beer that is not completely without charm.

Cobra (1100) - - AUG 7, 2006
11.2 oz. stubby brown bottle. Cryptic date code on back label. Fairly fresh sample though. Pours out a deep dark roasted color, with a medium tan colored head. Leaves a decent lacing down the sides of my chalice I had it in. Aromas are of funky Belgian yeast, sourdough bread, slight toffee notes as well, along with earthy hops. Medium mouthfeel, decent body. Flavors are consistent with a typical Belgian Dubbel. Some toffee, along with roasted malts make up the bulk of the flavors. Finishes somewhat dry & crisp. A decent take on the style overall.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2006 11.2 oz bottle, no freshness date.
Dark brown with ruby highlights. Fluffy tan head with thick sticky lacing.
Aroma is fruity (raisin, plums) and bready.
Flavor is sweet, hints of yeast, some caramel and molasses.
Body is a bit too thin for my liking.

Rich and tastes of lightly rasinated fruits, dark wheat bread, caramel and toffee, with a bit of spiciness and bit of dark brown candy sugar. Tasty but unbalanced.

Ernest (6353) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is clear dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel, husks, nuts), with a light note of candy sugar. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Definitely better than the Blonde, but still nothing to soil your robe over.
