Clear brown pour. Thin white head. Basic Abbey dubbel style. Flavors of caramel, roasted nuts, Drinkable, but slightly artificial tasting. Does not hold a candle to authentic belgians. Thinking Westmalle, etc.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
1.5dl on tap at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam. Body is clear amber brown, head is big, beige, creamy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Nose is light roasted malt, flavor is dried fruits, molasses, honey, brown sugar, light spices. Heavy sweet, medium roasty bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is medium lasting roasty medium bittersweet. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Easy dessert beer, a bit too sweet for me but nice anyway.

Bottle at Komachi. Finally got around to trying this Belgian-American classic. Pretty red-orange-brown, clear, with a tall, fine, off-white head. Yeasty nose, a bit roasted, miso, chocolate, spicy yeast. Flavor is quite spicy and full of umami, chocolate, soy. There is a rough yeastiness that I don’t really dig. Not too sweet, but the malt flavors are unimpressive for a dubbel.

Pours to a beautiful, big head barely fitting in a tulip, releasing a yeasty blast detectable from across the kitchen. Upon closer examination, one might nose out a bit of dark cherries and raisins, too. Body is quite spry and balanced with a sharp finish that also has hints of sweetness. Very nice.

Growler in fl (visitors at abc). Looks great. Flavor just above avg. Too smooth.. can that happen? Very nutty. Easy to drink, hides 7 percent quite well

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Watering Hole. Clear amber with a nice medium-sized off-white head of foam. Banana, clove, fig, prune and currant all over the nose. The banana and clove really lead the way though. Sweet on the palate, but not cloying. Body is a bit too thin but the nose is great. Nice fruity finish but a bit too thin.

Pours a dark brown with a thin, long-lasting white head. Aroma is lots of nut, caramel, dark fruits, and Belgian yeast. Flavor is nut, caramel, dark fruits, and subtle Belgian yeast. It took a bit to grow on me, but I enjoy this one, and the nuttiness sets it apart in the style.
