gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 30, 2012
Pours dark copper brown with a small head. The aroma holds caramel, light fruits and a whisper of spices. The flavour is light sweet, light bitter and light acidic/sourish. Caramelly and light fruity. The mouthfeel is clean and watery with a light carbonation. Light hoppy and caramelly finish. Light to medium bodied.

YigSvartka (63) - Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
Diminished aroma, but consists of dried fruit and cinnamon. A very light and refreshing ale that tastes more like a lager. Some roast. Stunted hops. Tedious, but ok.

Pours a clear reddish brown with a small off white head that quickly turns into a thin ring. Aroma is rich malty sweetness, caramel, dark dried fruits, spices, light banana and chocolate. Flavour is rich maltiness, chocolate, dark dried fruits(mostly raisin and light cherry), spicy clove, caramel, medium sweetness, and a touch of alcohol on the finish.

Reimer96 (1222) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours a clear deep amber with a ruby hue and a small light brown head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of toffee, caramel, raisins, plums, vanilla, biscuit and light spices like cinnamon. Taste is caramel, brown sugar, sweet dried fruits, grainy, biscuit, hint of vanilla and spices with a touch of alcohol warmth on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium carbonation and light for 8 percent, almost kind of wattery. Overall a nice easy beer to drink and a good winter warmer but needs more body and a fuller mouthfeel.

Average. Pours reddish brown with aromas of bubblegum and dried fruit. Similar flavors... I found this a bit watery.

Paddock Wood Winter ale : Une bouteille offerte par dresden. Une robe entre la couleur ambrée et la couleur brune. Une absence de tête mousseuse. Un nez passablement riche par un caramel qui semble vouloir se convertir en toffee. Une présence fruitée qui vague sur les malts. Un goût collé aux arômes avec des malts caramélisés et une petite touche fruitée. Un corps plutôt moyen avec un pétillement élevé et une texture qui tangue vers la minceur. Une finale principalement douce.

rodenbach99 (3158) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2012
Style et résumé: Double d’abbaye, pas sur.
Comment: Bouteille de 341ml. Dégustation de la révolte étudiante chez Patrick.
Description: Cette bière d’hiver est cuivrée-orangée sans mousse (un mince anneau). Le ne zest compos/e de toffee (caramel) et un côté très fruité provenant de la levure. La bouche est piquante, le pétillement de fines bulles est imposant, ce qui est pire car la bière est mince. Elle goûte le caramel et ces fruits de la levure.
Note: 5+/10

A nice dubbel. Dark brown/maroon colour with fruity aroma. Dried fruit, but not overly so. This was a quality beverage.

Had this one around a month ago at Beer Revolution in Calgary and I just found the notes. Pours out a murky amberish brown with a thin finger of beige head. A bunch of thick lacing rings disappear slowly. The nose is sweet and malted well with caramel, toffee and lightly spiced notes. An overall good look and nose. The taste has a light sweetness and mild bitterness throughout. A few light caramel and biscuity malts in the middle, a bunch of weird fruity notes and light grassy hops. The body is thin and watery for the style, but an overall great dubbel.
