WillMase (4) - Colchester, Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015 does not count
750ml bottle from UK Supermarket. Like the blond it has a smell of banana to it however this has a lot more to it, spices and sugar. Pours a beautiful dark brown and a lovely red in the light with a slightly off white thick but small head. Medium bitter, Medium sweet, ever so slightly sour. The slight carbonation tickles the roof of the mouth. Quite lively although Iíd say the finish is slightly abrupt. Like the Blond, a lovely beer it seems to do everything the blond does but better.

MelvinKalksma (60) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2015
Aroma: Sweet, brown sugar, nothing else really. Appearance: Dark brown/black beer with an off-white head. Taste/Palate: Lots of carbonation, sweet, caramel, vanilla, chocolate. Overall: This beer is just really thin, no defining aroma or taste.

King_Alex_II (440) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Darkest ruby red Iíve seen so far. (Dark ruby if you have a light behind it, otherwise rather black with little whitish foam.) The smell is licorice and sugar. The taste is lively carbonated and has a lot of sugar and licorice. The aftertaste is a thin version of the actual taste. Not a bad beer, but not my favorite style.

Melnis (275) - LATVIA - MAY 15, 2015
Aroma: Light to medium aroma of Dubbel, it is as expected and fine.the taste is the same after 2 seconds turns to smoked rubber. Actually I the taste of Dubbel reminds me of old mans coat smell :D

huineman (300) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 10, 2015
Pours dark amber. Tan head. Very intense aromas of vanilla, caramel, chocolate, tobacco. Full body. Powerful yet soft. Well balanced bitterness and sweetness. Medium finish. Even though it is so commercial, itís still a very good beer.
