Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2006
330ml Bottle: Poured a rich mahogany with a thick foam head. Excellent head retention and lacing throughout on this one. A complex aroma rich in cherry, apple, and grape alongside sugar and roasted malts. The flavour is quite yeasty with great caramel malt flourishes and faint hops in the back. As it warms I noticed a strong port wine flavour with a touch of nuts in the aftertaste. One of the few abbey dubbel’s to lose intensity and flavour as it warms, but still a good brew.

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2006
Bottled. Malt, banana, raisin and cove in the aroma. Flavor is initially burnt malt, progreesing to fruit and bitterness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin. A little nice lasting bitterness. Overall a decent mass produced belgian ale and i like the roasted quality, but i probably prefer the blond.

Grovlam (4189) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2006 One of the first beers that open my eyes to what great beer could tast like. First go at a double at the time. Smooth, ritch and very drinkable, with a light/dark color and tast. A slight bit of burned caramel and a sweet ending.

Stefano (1923) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2011 Let me say right away that I prefer the maltyness of dubbels to the spiciness of tripels. The aroma & flavour were highly malty, so I liked it, even though slightly medicinal. Finish is a little sweet but that’s alright in my book too.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2006
Poured from the bottle at Hideaway Bar in Wimbledon (London), dark black with a large rocky tan head. A yeasty aroma with caramal. Quite carbonated in the mouth, spicey caramal flavours and a tangy finish.
