Deep burgundy color with a big, fluffy head. Complex fruit aromas with a layered sweetness (honey, then caramel, then toffee) with a hint of licorice and chocolate. A big, rich, abbey-style ale that dries out nicely on the finish.

Poured from corked bottle into chalice. Dark opaque brown with thick, long lasting light tan head. Smells of wood, dark fruits, spicy Belgian yeast. Taste has more of the same, with some boozy warmth in the finish. Feel is nice and smooth, and medium bodied. Overall, kind of mild for a dubbel, but very pleasant flavor. I really like it.

A fantastic dubbel. Pours a beautiful tawny color. Aromas of sweet dried fruit, bubblegum, and a touch of coffee and anise. Flavors are sweet dried fruit followed by booze. Excellent.

Muggus69 (1272) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2014
750mL corked botle BB 10/2016 Pours a big beige head atop a hazy deep copper body. Rich aroma; quite vinous with notes of sultana, red berries & plum, with plenty of woody spice & citrus undertones. High carbonation, quite dry, somewhat well-attenuated, a bit of creaminess to the texture. Luscious sort of palate - lots of caramelly/treacley sweetness, touch of date & sultana with plenty of spice following up; anise, clove, pepper, woodiness & earthiness, decent bitterness on a dry finish with a touch of warmth. Nice enough Dubbel, one the drier end of the spectrum.

Taste and aroma make this brew. Nutty, apples peard and slight burnt caramel. Great flavors, only down part is cloudy brown, and wierd yeaty palate. But the good way outways the bad.

From a bottle at Mondiale de la Biere 2014, Mulhouse. Chestnut coloured with a full tanned head. Smell of malt, honey, nuts and melanoidins. Malty taste, a bit of alcohol is present, honey and red wine. Full body, a bit sweetish with a long lasting taste.

Pours dark with a huge dense tan head. Rich dark bread and yeasty aroma with some spices, not particularly strong. Flavor is earthy raw coco malty sweet and enough bitter. Feel is lively and lush. Solid balanced and enjoyable.

Habja mintha csak laboratóriumi körülmények között véghezvitt reprodukciója lenne a világhírű dubbeleknek, mennyeien krémes és lágy, áthatolhatatlanul sűrű és puha. Illatai a titokzatosság cseppjeiként hatnak a lenyűgözött szaglószervekre, a tejszínes élesztősség, korianderes pikánsság, gyümölcsös édesség és gyümölcshéjas fanyarság egyszerre van jelen az elegánsan visszafogott karakterben. Bársonyos kortyai - a kezdeti belga sörös benyomásokat idéző- rég nem tapasztalt ízélményt nyújtanak, mindenféle kiugró jellegzetesség nélkül, lágyan krémesek, aszalt gyümölcsös, halványan medvecukros színezetűek. Az a fajta ízvilág, amelyet mindig ismerősként üdvözölünk, megfejteni azonban nemigen tudunk.
