yespr (31804) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden amber with a diminishing tan head. Caramel malt and yeasty-fruity aroma. Classic caramel malt flavoured beer, shows a distinct yeast note which carries both a light fruit accent but also a light metallic edge. Smooth mouthfeel and a fullbodied alcohol feel. Ends with a solid caramel and fruity mix and warming alcohol feel.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2004
The aroma is quite sweet with notes of yeast, prunes, and raisins. The color is an opaque deep red and it has a beutiful lasting light brown head. The flavor is also very sweet with notes of brown suger, yeast, prunes, raisins, and hints of wood. The end is dry from hops but also with hints of coriander and coffee bitterness. Compared to the strength the mouthfeel is a little thin.

Papsoe (25083) - 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

oh6gdx (20902) - 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.

omhper (19945) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Hazy copper colour, rich creamy head. Yeasty earthy nose that softly transfroms itself to minerals, almond and melon. Sweet and very soft, near full bodied. Later on another soft transition occurs - this time to grapefruit, syrup and salt. Finally it gradialy turns into resiny pine needle bitterness. A sensationally seemless beer that weaves your mouth into a silky web full of complex flavours. Too sweet, but who cares? This is art!

fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
Dark amber color; giant creamy head; beautiful lace. Common aroma for a Dubbel, with some malt and caramel, and some carbonic gas nose. Pleasant taste, with some sweetness to balance the classic caramel. Ends with a delicate touch of roasted malt, light fruitness, light aromatic hop. A good example.

harrisoni (14106) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2005
Bottle. Slightly hazy ruby beer with thickish beige head. Tastes like Terry’s chocolate orange. Really nice choc and orange peel with acidic/citruic hop finish. Tad one dimensional but nice even still
