Kinda bland, biscuity, peachy, with loads of dust and a somewhat sticky finish.Great lacing, but overall, blah.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 24, 2003
On tap: Brown with an off-white head. Stale sweet malt aroma, thin bodied, fruity taste that is tempered by cardboard. The most boring dubbel that I've had.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2003
On tap at the Belgian beer cafe. A good yeasty fruity aroma featuring plums to the fore. Sweet with plums again featuring. Body seemed slightly thin for the style but overall pretty good.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2003
Pretty similar to Leffe Blond, but slightly more interesting. Nice colour and clarity and great head retention. Rum and plum aromas hiding behind the phenolic aroma. Flavour is sweet with some toffee in there. Quite drinkable but uninspiring.

rlgk (12521) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2003
Amber with a nice and creamy head. Has a fruity and yeasty aroma, typical to a belgian. Flavor is spciy, roasted and burned, with some cocoa in it. Has a bitter finish that also brings som chocolate.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2004 Looks a bit like a stout really, except somewhat more transparent. Head dies down making it look very unexceptional. Very slight aroma. Not bad flavour, but aain I'm somewhat reminded of stout. Is that coffee I can taste? For a slight premium I can get a Chimay or a Westmalle, and that's what I'll do. Feels like an abbey pretender. Too expensive as such, but not bad really. Re-rate: I was a bit harsh. I really need to give it a better description, but at least this grade is more deserving.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Large brown, fluffy head. Nose of raisins, yeast and chocolate. Sweet in taste with a great mouthfeel.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2003
Very dark red/brown colour. Large, bubbly, light brown head. Fruity aroma wihich reminded me of elderberries. Taste is sweet and fruity with a light hoppiness. Nice.

Jayb0 (1080) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Dark brown with pleasing head. Malty, with hints of milk chocolate and plum. Creamy and silky smooth. Nice finish with lingering spice offsetting the sweetness. A pleasant brown whose pleasure isn't in complex flavors but in the swallow.
