Bottled. Darkish brown, pale white head. Sweet, fruity aroma. Sweet tasting, perhaps a hint of chocolate. Typical Leffe yeast flavour, a little warming. Not bad, not great.

Had a few glasses from tap at Vol de Nuit on 4th St in the West Village recently. Nice dark pour with a decent light brown head. Very sweet and malty, with fruit notes. Relatively thick on the palette. The entire group was switching over to it, so it seems to be a crowd pleaser.

My first experience with an abbey dubbel wasn’t very good. This was my first one since a long time. 2 bottles and one glass from the tap. Amazing beer. Nice flavor and beautiful dark brown colour. The alcohol is hidden very well, that’s very positive.

KingofCastle (206) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2007
bottle: What a great beer. Both the blonde & the brune remind me of the holdiays & are great winter beers. Pours dark brown colour with frothy, puffy white head. The label says roasted malts give a sweet caramel taste but also bitter - that about says it. Very sweet, malty, fruity beer that just about overwhelms the palate but not quite. This is a stronger ale: I think I prefer the blonde (crisper) while this one’s alcohol taste is a little too strong at times. Still, we are talking quality and excellent example of style.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 22, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown colour with a nice average lasting light-brown head. Sweet, malty and hoppy aroma. Flavour of toasty malts, caramel, some spices, hops. Sweetish and bitter finish.

MissKicha (5) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2007 does not count
Bottle. Light body for a bruin. Dark brown with light lacing. Wine and raisin aroma. A slight sourness. Yeast gas in the end.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2007 Its definitely better than the blonde though harder to find in the bars. A solid dark beer.
