The scent is chocolate and somewhat metallic. Beautiful dark brown color. The taste of barley and dark chocolate. Lacks depth.

Rex_Remes (126) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - SEP 23, 2016
(330ml bottle, Beijing) AROMA: Light nose, soft coffee/toffee, grass, hint of cinnamon, roastiness. APPEARANCE: Dark brown, almost black, good carbonation, fluffy tan head, creamy/oily looking, sticky on glass. TASTE: medium to full bodied, coffee, some bitter sweetness, herbal, touch medicinal, a bit alcohol tasting, astringent. PALATE: crisp and sparkly on front of tongue, a bit biting on the back/sides, lingering dryness and bitterness. OVERALL: A strong, good-looking, vibrant beer, with some good flavor, but ... the balance seems a bit off, with me finding it kind of harsh (minimizing my overall enjoyment). UPDATE: better once it has breathed and warmed up a bit (becomes less bitter/astringent, becomes smoother/creamier). .

Gehbe (223) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 20, 2016
Pours clear deep ruby-brown with a huge tan head and lovely lacing. Nose of spice, chocolate, dark bread along with some roasty crust notes, dried prunes, raisins, molasses, toffee, nice earthy/smoky and woody notes. Taste: medium to high sweetness accompanied by light crispy/fizzy bitterness; not overly sweet. Medium to full body, high carbonation, pleasant alcoholic warmth, rather sticky. A rich and aromatic dubbel, well balanced and complex.

Freaky_tiki (1047) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
Dumbed down dubbel delights despite dearth of depth & density. In other words, a soft rock version of the style, with everything dialled down to medium. Ok but not worth it considering the heavy hitters from Belgium we can buy in Toronto.

zootfinster (220) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Not your average Abbey Double. First it only 6.5 abv. It’s also much less malty then I am used to. Their Blond ale is readily available and I consider it a little more true to it’s style, Belgian Ale but still only 6.6 abv This is fine but nothing to write home about. My main complaint is its lack of maltiness.

GhostS (42) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 6, 2016
sweet and sourish aroma - fresh grains, a bit caramelized sugar, wood of barrel, soil flavor, some yeasts and rotting herbs. consistent, creamy, sweetish and sourish aroma - a lot of cereal malt, a bit of sweet honey, caramelized sugar, some flowers and yeast. well balanced!

Zilb (170) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - AUG 23, 2016
Bue 15 mois avant DLC. Biere brune a fin col de mousse a bonne tenue. Carbo importante. Arome de caramel, houblons legers. Final caramel, malt grilles et pointe d’alcool. Belle rondeur. Jd prefere la blonde mais pas mal du tout.
