Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marcus (7323) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark brown with an attractive tan head and a toffee aroma. There is a dark molasses and plum flavor with a bit of chocolate and a dry finish. Nicely crafted in the Belgian style.

Damn good beer. Sweet dark fruits with some spices. Smooth mouth feel. Only knock would the lack of a strong nose. Delicious none the less.

From a 12 ounce bottle. Pours turbid deep chestnut with a beautiful brown-white head. Toffee nose is prevalent. Taste is sweet but muted, less candied sugar than other Belgians. Finishes smooth and clean. A solid performer.

Very malty. Good overall flavor. No bitterness. No alcohol flavor. Part of a BJs beer pairing.

bartzluke (217) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 10, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into sniffer glass. Burgundy and opaque, fizzy carbonation, moderate fizzy head that quickly dissipated. Medium bodied and dry. A bit thin for my taste. Nose is fruity and herbal. Taste is fruity and earthy, a little syrupy and toffee-y. Tangy. Strong Belgian yeast taste.

Deep burgundy color with a big, fluffy head. A little bit alcoholic aroma with sweet bready character and notes of honey, bread and sugar. A little fruity Very drinkable.

12 oz bottle. Poured a beautiful unfiltered mahogany-amber with a beige head and nice lacing. Sweet taste of caramel, roasted malts, Belgian yeast, brown sugar, toffee with a boozy finish. Avererage carbonation, medium body. Fantastic dubbel!
