Bought a bottle at the supermarket. Aroma of cloves and vanilla. Has a dark brown color a nice creamy head, and is highly carbonated. Taste of toffee and caramel and some spices. Taste is light sweet and has a bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall a very good Abbey Dubbel.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper brown from the bottle with light lacy head and lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, dark fruits, dark toasted malts. Taste follows, more of the esters and less the malts. Pretty solid for what it is and the availability.

I prefer this to the Blonde but enjoy both - albeit only occasionally. A reliable Belgian brew to contrast with my usual Anglo ales.

Nut brown colour. Aroma of brown sugar, plums. Soft brown sugar maltiness. Very light dusty yeastiness, plummy slightly cherryish esters and dark malt notes. Sugary finish. Simple character but effective in small doses.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Seems to score high but the flavour seems off. Bottle pours decent brown with a strong aroma. Not for me, but what I would expect from a Belgium brew.
