jercraigs (9722) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2008
008-03-05. Dark brown bod with a modest tan head that fades (3+). Mild aroma, tangy prunes/raisins, some kind of dark fruit over malt, which continues in the flavour where it adds magnitude to the tangy fruit aspect. Malt is present, but a touch dilute, and secondary to the afore mentioned fruit character. (6+) Average palate is thinner than I’d personally like for the style. Average, pleasant.
Bottle at Delerium Cafe, Brussels

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2008
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear reddish brown colour with purple hints with a low creamy off-white foam. Rich fruity and balanced aroma of dark cherries, berries, almonds, wood and mild spices. Medium-bodied with notes of almond-paste, sweet licorice, tart cherry-skins and dates. Long fruity finish of over-riped cherries, tobacco, almonds and dates. Nice one!

yespr (40082) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
ZBF2008: From tap. Pours hazy brown with a lacing white head. Roasted malt aroma with a light spiced touch. Flavour holds a smooth chocolate malt flavour with a minor spice note. Lovely lingering roasted finish with a wellbalanced spice note. Lovely.

mike_77 (5290) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2008
2008 Zythos Bier Festival, Belgium. Unpleasant aroma that reminds me of a kitchen sink, soapy and metallic. Appearance also not great, muddy brown with no head. The flavour is quite rich and vinous with a little maltiness and a sharp bite at the end.

Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement crémeuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement chocolaté. (Rating #1436)

bu11zeye (12679) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy dark brown body with a small creamy beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, sour grape, cherry, mineral, and chocolate. Flavor of vinous, plum, light smoke, toasted malt, and raisins.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Chocolatey malts become one with the bready yeast in this docile Abbey Dubbel. Its finish is devoid of tasty consequences, but its delicate fruity esters and well-fed mouthfeel add to the enjoyment.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam settles on top of the cloudy brown.
-Effervescence is rather active, but keeps servicing the pillowy mouthfeel.
-The flavor profile is quite straightforward; there aren’t any surprises here once you’ve smelled it.
-A slightly mineral touch appears in the aroma once in a while.

Bottle; best before December 2009.
