hauxe (445) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2016
Pours dark brown from the bottle and leaves an attractive finger thick head that lingers amidst the sticky lacing. Aroma is caramel, a bit bready, maybe some dark fruits at a subtle level but fruitiness is not the main driver here. Taste is toffee, butterscotch, plum set atop a sweet lightly sugary undertone. Finish has a hint of spice and a light alcoholic warmth. All in all however the alcohol remains very much disguised. Body is relatively light but maintains a rich and creamy character. Adequate carbonation. A good Dubbel.

Tjomleif (144) - NORWAY - OCT 13, 2016
375ml. bottle. Decent beer. Lightly hoppy with a nice balance of malt. An excellent choice when you want to enjoy a beer without getting too heavy.

jsporrer (744) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Pours a medium dark brown with a big foamy tan head. Light spice aroma with a little carbonation. Crisp and fresh light spicy malt flavor. Fairly refreshing. Not quite as good as some other Dubbel’s I’ve had but still enjoyable.

PanMarek (267) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Caramel malt in the nose with some sweet dried fruit. Dark amber with thick, beige foam. Medium body, light fizz and rich finish. The dried fruit come out in the taste but are well balanced by the malt. The yeast gives it a dryness that prevents it from being too sweet.
