PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2014
From 12/1 2013. A classic. Smooth mouth feel, oyster and soy oil both in the palate and the main taste. Pruny aftertaste with a slightly dark sense of fruit. Endurant, stays good for a long time. Further down the glass a christmassy maltiness and hints of glühwein.

elosop (158) - SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
Mäktigt, brunfärgad skumkrona över mörk mahogany. Aromen lite tunn (lite förkyld?), men smaken bred, karamelligt söt. Lite bränd kastanj i eftersmaken. Klart godare än den ljusa (eller påverkar årstiden smaken).

Abijen (1499) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2014
Pours a brown beer with a good white tan head. Smells malts, fruity and sweet. Tastes the same. Average carbo, thin body and a sticky texture.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a chalice. A: Dark amber-brown color with a huge grizzly head which lasts for long and leaves a lot of lacings S: Smells toffee, caramel roasted malts and Belgium yeasts. Very spicy T: Strong taste of roasted malts. Belgium yeasts. Brown bread. Sweet and fruity (dark fruits) as it should with a light bitter end M: Medium to full body. Creamy. High carbonation. Nice Belgium sweet-bitter taste. Intense sensation O: Great drinkability. Good quality even after being purchased by AMBEV. [ BA Review @ 4/20/2010 ]

camoes (148) - PORTUGAL - OCT 14, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 49 11:37. AROMA: low sweet malt aroma with faint notes of caramel. no hop aromas. some spicy alcohol aromas are present. APPEARANCE: dark amber color and translucent. reddish depth. large ivory head with average retention. some lacing is present. TASTE: notes similar to aromas. dilluted sweet malt background flavour. low bitterness. finishes semi-sweet. PALATE: medium-low body with average carbonation. OVERALL: a mild (aroma and flavour wise), belgian dubbel that lacks more malt derived complexity. a bit on the watery side.

"had this on tap in Hawaii of all places. quite pleasant, just what you’d expect of a dubble, nothing more, nothing less. it was a solid B, and worth trying if you’re curious."

Great beer that I very often enjoy as a night cap. It pours a nice dark rich brown and it has a great texture and taste.

Drank from a bottle. Sweet and malty, surprisingly mild taste. I like the blond one better.

Brown clear color with big head. Looks like a root beer float! Floral aroma. Clove taste with hints of strawberry. Smooth palate with no bitterness.

freretoc (731) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 16, 2014
Bue à la pression en 25cl en terrasse du Bar de l’U à Besançon, couleur brune caramel, une mousse parfaite. En bouche attaque sur le caramel et les malts grillés, continuité crémeuse et fin gros caramel noix. Excellente pour une industrielle.
