Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2004
Cloudy dark tan with a rhubarb tinge. ’House’ nose; spice, cinamon, with excellent lift. Sweetish and strongly builf in the mouth, Quite thick (not a session beer) with more spice and cloves. Finishes long - has good length. Seems to hit a little harder than its 6.5%. Good stuff.

NosirIwont (1980) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2004
Bottle. Nice red/brown colour with a greyish-brown head. Sharp fruity aroma with a touch of yeast. Powerful, winelike flavour. Wellbalanced. Sweetish. Faint touch of yeast. Has a distinct metallic/iron flavour, which makes it taste like blood. - I find it kinda disturbing. Otherwise a fine beer.

pineypower (2525) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Have no idea why this brew isn’t rated higher. Got a bottle from Belgium...pours out a nice deep brown color with slight carbonation and a nice medium sized fluffy head. It has a nice malty aroma. The taste is complex but well balanced with notes of brown sugar and yeast. Once again I think this is a way under rated dubbel

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 2, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2005 Re-rated 30/04/2005. 330ml bottle from Woolworths, Kilbirnie. Spicey aroma with hints of tobacco and wood smoke. Appears dark dark brown (darker than I remember) with a carbonation that hangs in the glass rather than fizzing to the top. Good sweet maltiness on the tongue with a touch of vanilla, pepper, clove and cinnamon. Dry and spicy in the finish with a slight tingle from the carbonation. Some residual sweetness in the dryish palate. Good drinking.

JoeMcPhee (8511) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2004
Gorgeous dark brown beer with a thick rocky off-white head, sticky lacing. Malty aroma, intense mintiness, caramel, brown sugar. Flavour also shows yeasty spiciness. Quite sweet up front. Flavour is slightly bready and the finish is nutty. Not bad, but doesn’t show a whole lot of intensity or complexity and has a tendency to become cloying.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Decent Abbey dubbel although it was slightly too dry and a bit too bland. Deep brown murky color with a slight head. Flavor is fruity and estery with hints of plum and raisin.

Crit (3360) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2004
Gorgeous brown,huge lasting rocky tan head, tiny bead.Light banana nose. Too much yeast and too little malt for a dubbel. Bitter finish. A rather poor representation of the style

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2005 Bought in a bottle from Budgens Supermarket near Kings Lynn. Nice big 700ml bottle with a champagne style cork top Dark brown in colour. A lovely Abbey beer & a world away from the light Lager beers often found in mainland Europe. Very nice but a bit to fizzy for me Re-Rate05/01/05 Bottle from The Alex in Derby. Very malty, quite bitter in flavour 14/20
