4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- poured a deep cloudy ruddy brown with a rich creamy cappuccino head. Great retention and big lacing throughout the beer. S-redolent with dark fruit (raisins and cherry), citrus, and spices. T- this is what a dubbel is supposed to taste like. The amalgamation of the ingredients is incredible, with no one flavor drowning out any one else but all of them harmoniously coexisting like a Belgian Beer commune. Fruit, spices, roasted malts all have a chance to move across your palate. M- full, with a slight slick unctuous character O- an outstanding example of the dubbel style.

bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown with beige head. Lively carbonation. Heavy aromas of caramel malt and toffee. Bit of chocolate in the flavor with some tart fruitiness. Touch of licorice and some bitterness in the finish. Pretty complex.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle to tulip. Aroma is moderate baker’s bread with slight candi. Banana esters and bubblegum appeared as it warmed. Hazy mahogany with a full light brown head. Sweet malt with slight orange peel. An uninspiring faint richness, with a gritty finish on the flavor. Finishes nicely dry.

355ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.fr. Pours deep brown with small beige head. Promising sweet malty aroma. Taste is brown sugar and burnt currants, with spice & a lot of yeast. Smooth and flavoursome dubbel. Not bad.

Good Dubbel. Big malty and yeasty aroma. Biscuit and bready malt flavors with a definite Belgian touch. Soft brown color with a tan foamy head and full weighty palate.

This has a really interesting flavor. It lingers on your tongue long after you swallow.

Awesome especially from US. Fruity nose of grapes and dark dried cherries. Malts come through with mild toast and pumpernickel bread. Thick rich sweetness on palate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Giant Eagle Market District. Pours a nice dark rich color with a pleasant fruity aroma. Somewhat thin for a darker beer but it doesn’t lack for flavor. A nice mixture of ingredients gives it a full rich taste that is pleasing to the palate. Smooth with little carbonation. Goes down easy. We tried 5 different Belgian beers at the store and bought a bottle of this to bring home.
