A brown, Belgian-style abbey ale. Caramel, banana, biscuit and fruity-aromas contribute to the balance of this strong, complex beer. A sweet, bready and caramel flavor follows with a silky, creamy finish.

Chalsk (1088) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2013
On tap at Torst. Pours a light brown color with an oil slick head. Aroma of dark fruit, bananas, and caramel. Lots of flavor. Caramel, alcohol, spice and some chocolate notes mixed in. Excellent dubbel. Challenges Westy 8.

Bacterial (1826) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Pour from a 2012 12 oz bottle. Hazy dark brown, thin tan head. Soft carbonation. Nice viscosity on this one - substantial but not too thick. Nose is malty, honey and some yeast in there too. Booze is well hidden beneath some nice malt profiles - quite good!

dogfishho (599) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pours dark brown with ruby tints. Very little head and very little in the way of carbonation on the palate. The aroma is fruity with sweet cherry and raspberry tones along with some caramel and a modest wine grape tannic finish. The only problem is that the flavor is a tad hollow. Not bad but not that great either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damico (2744) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Pours clear honey amber, like lighter brandy with a sandy head. Aroma and flavor punch you in the face equally with huge spicy malty flavors, sweet with impressions of barrel aging even, crazy. Obviously so big for a dubbel it wasn’t brewed in Belgium, it is so smooth it is uncanny for the boozy notes. The yeast is there to maintain the style but actually eclipsed by the big malty and spicy aspects.

2012 bottle, abv says 10.25%. Pours a very dark ruby red color with a small head that fades normally. Really nice Belgian-y aroma of dark fruit, bananas, bubblegum, raisin bread, and caramel. Taste is fairly sweet at first with lots of dark fruit, raisins, and bananas. Flavor turns to dark bread and caramel by the finish. No alcohol burn in the finish but I don’t like the fizzy carbonation that comes out. That’s about the only thing I don’t like about it though. Pretty delicious Belgian dark.

daknole (9694) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Deep brown pour, small head. Flavors of dark dried fruit, especially nice sweet dates and raisins, I get hints of bubblegum, bready notes and a sweet finish. Pretty good.

JStax (3338) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to unclerudy. Pours a translucent dark brown with not much head. Aroma has lots of dark fruits and caramels. Lots of fig and raisins coming through. Taste has a dark sweetness with some Belgian candi sugar influence and a soft burn on the backend. Really a nice beer.

12oz bottle, brown sugar, dark fruits. Sweet. Not sure this is a Dubbel. Still not horrible, but nothing to write home about.
