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.

4/04/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 1/2011 (2011-132)

Note: the beer is already a few months past expiration date.This will of course have influenced the flavour and aroma’s for the better.

Dark ruby red to brown beer, little cloudy, fine sediment floating around. Light beige creamy head, stable and adhesive. Aroma: caramel, dried fruits, alcohol, raisins, mocha. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: fruity, sweet caramel but not cloying, berries, a little sour, some hops balancing it all. Aftertaste: fruity sour, caramel, milk chocolate, a little bit cloying but nothing disturbing. Lovely beer to age.

I really like the aroma of beers from this brewery. Powerfull hops. A bit to sweet in flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2003 What a beautiful beer! My first thought when I put my mouth to the glass is that this beer is very similar to Rochefort 6. It has the most beautiful beige creamy head and a nice hazy amber body. The aroma is malt and fruit and the flavor is malt, fruit and spices!

omhper (19321) - 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!

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.

Moravius (451) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2013
33 cl bottle. - Dark brown. Heavy caramel and roasted malts, sweet but not cloying. Fruity and slightly earthy, with notes of redcurrants. But it’s the distinct coffee flavour that makes this Dubbel stand out from the mass of competitors. Quite bitter finish. - Characterful dubbel, one of my favourite Belgian beers.

A malty and sweet beer. It is very warming and extremely full flavoured and complex with notes of dark fruit and spices. A great brew.

330 ml bottle, as "Kapittel Watou Dubbel" (no "Het" anymore), bought in Frederikshavn, Denmark. Chestnut colour, large light tan head. Lovely caramel aroma, also hops and dark fruits, hints of sherry, spices and oak. Flavour has also caramel sweetness with lightly roasted malts and moderate oaky and spicy elements, nice. Moderate hops in the finish. A pleasant beer to drink, will appeal to people with a "sweet tooth".
