bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Aroma of malt and light hints of dark fruit. Color is deep brown with minimal head. Sweet beginning with grape, and perhaps a bit of dark stone fruit. There is a background of chocolate and caramel, but concord grape keeps coming to mind. Just a hint, mind. Really quite nice.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, lightly cloudy, with a small, off-white and quickly diminishing head. Nose has some modest Belgian character, caramel and some toffee. A pleasing flavor, sweet with brown sugar and toffee. Medium in body, average carbonation. Medium length finish, lingering sweetness and hints of grape jam. Really good overall. Just what I would want from a dubbel.
