Wittales (636) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Appearance was cloudy reddish brown with lasting beige creamy 2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are slight caramel, toffee malts with licorice, anise then soft estery yeasts. Taste are malts forward with sweet toffee, gram cracker, brown sugars midway. Licorice, anise with soft fruits of plum, fig and slightly drying finish. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with medium-full body, lasting spicy finish. Solid Dubbel, but touch to much spice.

chucklemation (488) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pours a dark burgundy with a foamy, long-lasting white head. Has an aroma of sweet yeast and fruit. Flavor is dark fruit, caramel, and yeast, along with a little bit of an alcohol bite. Delicious.

Lagerboy (1237) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
750 ml corked and caged bottle. Unclear deep ruby, fine creamy tan foam settles and lasts. Aroma of sweet malt, dark fruit and yeast. Taste is not too rich toasty caramel/toffee malt, quite yeasty, darker fruitiness, raisin, fig, plum, some spice, herb and earth. Average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Another solid effort from Ommegang. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

swesson (232) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Poured from a bomber. Pours a dark, burgundy red with an extremely foamy off-white head that sticks around a long time. Pour slowly! Smells of yeast, malt, and dried fruits. Tastes very rich in the abbey ale tradition, yet not too heavy and syrupy as some do. Drink this from a tulip glass and don't rush it. Simply enjoy! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The abbey pours a dark burgundy color with a thick white head. The body is dark and hazy, full of wonderful flavor and aromas. The aroma is filled with caramel malts, fruit and spice, as well as an alcohol kick in the nose. The palate is full and the alcohol has a nice warming quality to it. Favors of sweet caramel, dried dark cherries, prune, and yeast dance on the tongue. These favors mingle for a time and finish slowly.

sample @ home, thanks veliempojot!
Aroma is sweet with ripe fruits and raisins. Flavour has raisins, some chocolate and ripe fruits. Also some orange peel and spicy notes. Contains some throat-warming alcohol. Quite sweet, but still most likely the best dubbel outside Belgium.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
Dégustée (bouteille) le 2 juin 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D23C4KPPPi). Bière brune foncée. Col mince beige foncé crémeux et persistant. Odeur de sucre et d’alcool. Un peu forte, très sucrée, assez amère en finale. Saveur de sucre d’orge bien présente, finale un peu sèche. Bien équilibrée, pas trop sirupeuse malgré le côté sucré. Se boit bien, alcool bien caché.
