Noctilucus (100) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2012
Cloudy brown/red with a thick head of fine beige foam. Smells roasted and malty, with the sweetness of dark candy sugar. The taste is very much like the nose, slightly roasted, quite sweet but certainly not excessively, prunes or raisins, a full and malty taste with a hint of iron if it’s served rather cold. There’s a medium alcoholic feeling as well. The aftertaste differs in the sense that there is a fine bitterness to it, almost grassy. In short: a very nice, pleasant, full and balanced taste, even more so since it’s only a 7.5% beer.

laiti (5700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 28.10.2010
Aroma has brown sugar, some ripe fruits and hints of orange peel. Flavour is slightly sweet with dark fruits, roasted notes, some brown sugar and hints of spices. A typical dubbel – but not in a bad way.

GSAP (499) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2012
Aroma blijft wat achter bij de sterke volle smaak van caramel, koffie, donker fruit en geroosterde amandelen. Aardig wat koolzuur, maar vlakt meteen af zodat smaak kans krijgt. Nasmaak peperig, koffie en licht bitter.

davidm (1935) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle 330ml from the local taphouse. Brown, with a frothy head. Very tasty and robust dubbel. Aromas of caramel, toffee, and butterscotch. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied.

olsvammel (3072) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2012
It poured a hazy amber liquid with a dirty white head. Fruity and caremelly smell with yeast and dried fruit. The taste is dominated by metal, but also some caramel and dried fruits in the background. The metal seems to be a problem in all the Kapittel Watou beers.

Kapittel ... Dubbel.... ça rime, ça rame, comme tartine et boterham. Une dubbel à 7,5 abv, ma fois c’est une présentation soft. La mienne a 8 mois en plus que la date limite, c’est sans doute mieux. Couleur brun foncé à rousse en transparence. Arômes de prunes, pruneaux, caramel, crème brûlée et crème de noisettes. Bien. Volume doux et soyeux. Première bouche dans le ton des arômes en prunes bien mûres, avec une pointe de noix, noisettes et amandes, du clou de girofle aussi Second nez très agréable d’un bon brassin de brune. Deuxième bouche sympa avec des nuances de fruits mûrs. Troisième bouche un peu sur la canne à sucre. Le problème de cette bière est sa levure très maigre. Sans quoi, elle pourrait bénéficier d’une cotation bien meilleure. Malgré tout, le temps a fait son oeuvre, et je donne une meilleure cote ici que ma première cotation personnelle. La longueur est belle, mais la finale un peu trop sucrée. Une bière honnête donc, qui domine dans l’appellation avec la triple.

Vaiz (3372) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, solid off-white head. Aroma of spices, candy sugar, honey and caramel. Flavor is very sweet, almost cloying. Soem spices in the finish. Too sweet for me.
