On draft at KClingers: Another amazing pull at KClingers, a beer I haven’t seen anywhere else in the US. It’s much darker than I remembered or expected. Drinks smooth and slightly roasty. The aroma is somewhat pruney, as is the flavor, but ulimately this is a damn good dark, sweet beer. (#2716, 2/17/2007)

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
