Ruby with a tan head. Mild caramel and fruit cake aroma. Sweet dry fruits, yet in no way cloying. Nice!

Very easy to drink double. Not very good, not bad. Because of the hot summer and no pilsener around a had too drink this one. No ideal circumstances!

oh6gdx (23707) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2005
Bottled, redbrownish, with a beige/brown longlasting head. Smelled like plum and berries along with some soapish hints. Flavour was sweet plummy with caramellish hints. It got a bit bitter once it got warmer, with different sweet flavour becoming more present.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 (Bottle 33 cl) Dark brown with a fine, stable head. Some roasted, caramellish notes but still with an almost tobacco-like dryness. Notes of both licorice, chocolate and perhaps even...coffee? Lovely not too sweet Dubbel. 221097 and 170598

bmxutos (161) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUN 5, 2005
Bottle, 33cl. Beautiful dark brown color with a long lasting head. Unfortunatelly the flavour on this one was extremely metallic and i could hardly finish it. It doesn´t seem a problem with the cap so... i’ll try another one later to see if i get a better impression. For now.... not approved.

Brown colour with a off-white head. Light sweet yeasty caramel malty aroma and a sweet caramel taste. Medium to full body and a sweet finish.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2005
a sim rate: Chocolatey, caramelly aroma. Quite metallicy in flavour and slightly bitter, but also smooth and typically double. Similar to Achel Dark but with a tinge of bitterness. Gorgeous aroma from a Charles Quint glass.

Bottle at DBF2005. Sweet and yeasty nose. Amber colored beer, with a small off-white head. Sweet flavor, good fruity maltiness.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2005
I’m not too keen on this. It smells like herbs and candy. And the flavor is way too sweet in my opinion.The palate is also sweet (of course) and metallic. However, cheers for the label (which looked different than on this picture). Four old monks drinking beer.Funny.

rauchbier (3699) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2005
Bottle, Criterion, Leicester Crawl Jan 2005. Deep chestnut, good off white head, good condition. Big chocolaty malt and slightly nutty dubbel aromas, creamy and slightly earthy in the mouth with more solid chocolate maltiness. Lingering chocolate and roasty dry bitterness in the finish. I forgot how good this was.
