UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 Re-rating (13/1/2012) I can’t believe it took me six years to try this one again. Beautiful dark burgundy color with an off white head. Aroma is yeasty with notes of caramel, molasses, brown sugar and spices: Clove, nutmeg and coriander. Wonderful. Taste is sweet and spicy, nicely complex, showing notes of Weinachts Stollen, cookies, caramel, nougat and dark fruits. A real dessert. The rest of the features are almost the same. A very good Dubbel I would drink once a week if a lived in an area where it was easily available. Not here on Easter Island. Cheers! Re-Rating (Aug 28, 2006):
Ok. This time the flavor was somewhat better than the first time. This time I got notes of coffee, figs, nuts and bitter chocolate. Nice bitterness towards the end. Unfortunately it lacks in the mouthfeel. This is the lightest Dubbel I’ve ever had. The aroma is still good though. It gets some more points now. 7/4/6/3/13: 3.3

Original Rating (Feb 17, 2006): 7/4/5/3/12 Score: 3.1
Pours a deep brown color with red wine undertones. Head is light beige, big and frothy with medium retention. Good aroma of malt, showing notes of caramel, cookies and coffee. The slightly woody character is mixed with an alcoholic hint in the nose. Typical example of the "Abbey Dubbel" style. Flavor starts lightly sweet like a sweetened coffee but becomes progresively bitter, ending with medium duration. Unfortunately there is a strange yeasty/metallic thing in the mouthfeel and the alcohol is too dominant. Medium bodied, the finish is a bit astringent and pretty alcoholic. It becomes better with warming.

[Draft] Brown beer with a limited head. Very particular aroma and flavour. Someone else said “There is something unclean in the flavour” and I concur. Will give it another try and re-evaluate if necessary.

Tap/Abbaye Bar. Dark brown brewed in the medieval backwoods dirt beer. deliciously slaved upon dirt. A good antidote to anything bitter or too strong, it’s like sweetwater beer with 1/8 medival cola vitae.

CamdenD (1113) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 5, 2006
Served in Italy as a "rosso" this beer is pretty tame. The candied sugars in the taste border on sicky-sweet, but it still remains drinkable. This is a belgian ale for those who don’t want anything too overwhelming.

Quevillon (2605) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2006
Au Québec, disponible seulement en fut. Un goût de malt roti et plain de saveur sucré, mais qui ne tombe pas sur le coeur. Un arome riche et chaleureux.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2006
330 ml Bottle, 6.5% a/v Very rich in color with a large off white, almost light brown head. Smells of wood and malt. Nice spicy taste with a mildly hoppy aftertaste. This is a damn fine beer. Then again i always was a sucker for Brunnettes!

10-oz glass at Hopleaf in Chicago. Dark mahogany with a lasting touch of creamy head...rich, deep malty nose with lots of sweet caramel and plum...body more plummy, slightly peppery-alcoholic (nicely warming, not harsh), moderately sweet and lightly yeasty-musty. Really nice, just a solid simple pleasant-drinking beer to go with the excellent rustic rabbit I was eating.
