Dark brown with beige head. Smells of smokey wood and berries. The taste strikes you immediately; almonds, nuts, berries. Alcohol persists throughout, even in the aftertaste. Very good.

Quite clear brown reddish with a average frothy head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, dry fruits like dates. Medium sweet with adry and light bitter finish. Average carbonation, medium to full body, quite smooth. A good dubbel.

Ok belgian dark. Not too strong or voozy but instead drinkable. Sugary feel on teeth. Not much fruity flavors.

jjsint (1549) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2015
Draught at Berthom V, Lyon. Very dark brown with an incredibly beautiful creamy tan head. Very muted aroma: a bit of chocolate and coffee but also a jarring metallic note. Taste is sweet and satisfying, with a nice alcohol burn. A bit of sweet/sour tinge in the finish. Not the best Dubbel I’ve had, but certainly enjoyable.

DraftDodger (556) - - SEP 6, 2015
Copenhagen 5/9 2015. 75 cl bottle from the airport near Brussels. Pours clear copper brown with big yellowish head. Settles as thick creamy layer of foam with lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is a bit sharp and sourish. A bit spicy as well. A little cinnamon and mustard. Soft carbonation. Taste is strong and spicy. Sharp, sour mustard, yeast, a little metallic alcohol and something burnt. Unexpectedly sharp in flavour for a Bruin - but you do not regret that you bought a big bottle.

metalspice (355) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2015
Klart rødbrunt med off-white skum. Lukter svisker, brent sukker og ristet korn. En mørk bitterhet preger smaken, noe frukt og malt. Gjennomsnittlig munnfølelse.

rikstar (1556) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2015
0,33l fles op terras in schoorl. Bruin met een crème kraag. Smaak en geur zoet met bruine suiker en iets alkoholisch. Body medium, typisch Belgisch bruin, niks meer niks minder

Not a bad dubbel. Slight brown. Slight tannish head. Little lacing. Sweet caramel notes and some slight sugar.

migwell (130) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Poured into a goblet, quite foamy and with a persistent brownish head. Probably started this too cold, as I find not much complexity in the brew beyond a bit of cocoa and yeast. It’s a mild flavored, malty strong brown beer, fairly dry, a bit oily and somewhat bitter in the finish. Easy drinking, pretty pleasant but not outstanding. As always seems to be the case with quality beers, this brew got more flavorful and enjoyable as it warmed up. (Bought it off a warm shelf, brought it home on a very hot day for 15 miles in my bike bag and threw it in the freezer for a bit too long). Nice one, really.

12/17/2006 3:55:33 PM Bottle at home. A nice ale with a distinctive Maredsous taste of malt and caramel. A sweet scent and a dark brown/black color. Finishes up nicely.
