erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Pours a deep brown with Ruby highlights topped by a lacy minimalist head. Aroma is caramel, coffee and chocolate with a character that is not unlike Rochefort 8. The body is med with lite CO2. The flavors are medicinal, kahlua, sweet cherries and caramel. Some drying coffee-like bitterness in the finish. A very unique and enjoyable dubbel.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, clear reddish mahogany with a tall, dense, beige head. Sweetish aroma of roasted malt and burned caramel. Medium body with very sweet roasted malt and brown sugar or burned caramel. Subdued bitterness. 221106

Isn’t this a dobbelbock? Very sweet, nice full taste. Yet no noticable banana or melon tones. I really don’t care about the label here. For some time I thought this was bottled for finnish liqueor store Alko because of the cheap looks, but it seems to be quite big in Belgium and France.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2006
Bottle at home. Maybe my bottle was off? I thought it was way too sweet with very little taste. Very hoppy and not good enough to even finish. (I notice that a lot of reviewers are giving it 3.4’s and saying it misses the mark -- strange.)

skortila (4514) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2006
Aroma of raisins, caramel and chocolate malts, some red fruits. Hazy, very dark brown coloured with a brown, medium head. Taste is quite sweet, chocolate and caramel malty, raisins in it, some rye and red fruits. Slightly carbonated finish. Bit sticky and well-bodied. This brew has much potential. It is however way to sweet.

Tmoney99 (10670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Bottle. Poured cloudy brown color with an average off-white fizzy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet balanced aroma. Medium body. Medium sweet balanced flavor with a medium biitersweet finish of moderate duration.

themadmumis (347) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Nothing special with this one... the theme is unbalanced overall. Awkward blend of numerous tastes that add up to a weird sweetness with undeniable caramel tone. Wish I could distinguish more, but it ends here.

Marsiblursi (3005) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2006
(Bottle at Monks Café, Stockholm) Pours dark red/brown. Buttery, shugary aroma with some unripe berries. Sugary, alcohol flavour with a medium body. Unbalaced.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2006
Dark brown, near black colored, medium sized lasting brown head. Aroma is sweet with toffee, caramel, chocolate and some berries. Medium bodied. Flavor is also very sweet with this toffee and berry tones, aftertaste is slightly sour with some biting carbonation and chocolate. Interesting Ale, still too sweet for my taste.

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Dark opaque brown with fluffy head. Aroma smells like bacardi rum. Flavor is horrible and my guess its due to an extremely old bottle? Who knows. Soem signs of caramel and raisin but other than this beer is so sweet it taste like liquid sugar.
