A very nice Duppel, deep copper color, clear,. Grass and slight banana aroma. Slight sweetness with good malt backbone. Lightly hopped, just balances the malt. Dry finish. Very indicative of the style.

Classic version of a classic style. The yeast character works nicely in concert with the malt to give the subtle fruitiness, without being overbearing. Delicious caramel/toffee quality, moderate dark aged fruit note. It’s no wonder that it’s won so many medals.

Wonderful aroma: slight banana, some spiciness and other fruitiness. Certainly not the best dubbel but still quite good.

Belgian easters in the aroma together with caramel and raisins. The taste is caramel, raisins, plums and hints of chocolate. Also some belgian esters in the background.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tastes a little different for the style but still very good. A little bready with some banana. More British character and less of the sweet candi sugar than most dubbels. Some caramel too, but its a bitter caramel. The carbonation level is just right and it has a frothy, lingering head. A pretty easy-drinking dubbel.

Darker brown color with medium white head, flavor full with some bitter flavors with good balance. Would continue to be a New Belgium fan.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Rich chestnut & copper body with very mild clarity; chunky, voluptuous ecru cap slowly recedes & leaves some fat lacing spots behind. Aroma of musty bubblegum, doughy yeast esters, faint perfume, stale caramel, & a hint of some dark fruits. Taste is more clove-y & bubblegum forwards, lots of sharp yeast out of the gate. Prunes, red grape, caramel, toast, chunky yeast, & subtle esters linger into the finish. A touch of phenol with a mild medicinal astringency towards the back-end that I don’t exactly dig. A decent dubbel but hard to choose this when so many better, authentic examples are readily available.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish brown with a off white head. Taste belgian yeast, Carmel, fruity. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.
