Jimthechap (1692) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 30, 2013
Pours slightly hazy russet to coppery brown with a full creamy coloured head that sank slowly into the glass. I love a dubbel and hope this lives up to my expectations of full cocoa, malt and butter aroams. It is alittle lighter than expected, but no less satisfying. It also carries a touch of licorice, molasses and pumpernickel. The mouthfeel is of full carbonation and then it gives way to flavours of chocolate biscuits, cola and dusty Dutch biscuits. It is dry to the finish but leaves with a gorgeous reminiscence. It also leaves me a happy man.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2012
#875 Mittelbraun, leicht trüb, etwas Schaum verbleibt nach kurzer Zeit. Ein leicht würziges Aroma. Der Antrunk ist spritig; die 7,5% Alk. schlagen voll durch. Der Geschmack ist verdammt süß, eher nach Raffinade als nach Gerstenmalz. Der leicht röstige, brotige Geschmack kommt dadurch gar nicht zur Entfaltung. Das Etikett mit vier Mönchen in bierseeliger Runde ist noch das Beste an diesem Dubbel, schade! Test vom 20.4.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,7,6,10,8 - 7,90

Noctilucus (101) - 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 (5782) - 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 (1936) - 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.
