talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2011
The pour is nice especially for a dubbel, which tend to be fairly fizzy; a mostly clear, sparkling, deep ruby color with a khaki-colored, full, creamy, rocky head which is mostly lasting and does leave some scattered, foamy lace. The nose is pleasant enough with toasted breads, toasted caramels, maple, slight raisin esters, light spiciness, and some earthy tones. The flavor is okay but flawed with metallic undertones, lots of toasted caramel, some breads, slight raisins and dates, and the same earthiness. The palate is okay with a more than medium body, soft to lively carbonation, and a dry but round mouthfeel. The finish is dry, still fairly sweet with caramel and date, and balanced by the earthy tones. A nice dubbel with the metallic notes being the biggest downfall. Certainly rich and balanced by a nice earthy note but not overly complex. Decent effort but much better examples from Belgium.

77ships (3686) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2011
bottle@bar: earthly amber/brown coloured with beige head, tasted sweet with heavy emphasis on overripe fruit with nuts, caramel & toffee, roasted malt & some maple syrup, bit light bodied, not that impressive really

Abio (1569) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2010
Pours out brown, a good sized head, colopase a bit to quick, but sticks to the glass. Smell is yeast, dried fruits, earthy, some spices. Taste is sweetness for most, and fruity. Dried fruits kicks in hard. Not really how I like my beer. To simple.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2010
Aroma of chocolate and nuts. Pours a clear dark brown color with a thin light brown head. Average flavor of chocolate and nuts. The body is light to medium with a vinous texture and soft carbonation.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 23, 2010
Bottle.It pours a clear, brown body under a small, beige head. Lots of dried fruits on the nose, with some white sugar, a touch of ripe blue plums and yeast, and a spiced hint. Nicely carbonated, full-bodied, with some cellar. Mostly sweet, caramel and dried fruits Nutty notes. Sweet finish with dried fruits and some cellar. A quite nice beer, but it won’t raise any eyebrows. 100423

eManu (448) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 13, 2010
Pours a clear dark amber red color with a nice beige color head. Aroma of malts, red fruits, caramels and light spices. Flavors is malty, litle red fruits, caramels, some candy. Good carbonation, sweet and litle dry. Light liquor feel, but missing something overall. Nothing great here.

Fin (7364) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle that I picked up at Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Gent, Belgium, 31-10-09 consumed 15-12-09 Pours a really muddy puddle brown in fact nothing like the picture, this stuff is really murky and my careless pouring (though I didn’t realise I was being careless) has ensured that there is tons of sediment like a hundred million jellyfish swirling about in this. Aroma is of rough, raw cane sugar. Taste is rich, malty, spicy and with a good depth of flavour. Ok its a bit rough around the edges not least in the appearance but its most likeable, mollasses, a spicy peppery bitterness, if the aroma and appearance had of offered a bit more this could have been a really decent beer, as it is, it just pretty decent.

Borresteijn (4634) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2009
33cl Bottle from Achelse Kluis, ABV 7.1%. Clear ruby brown colour, dense light beige head. Aroma of brown sugar and sweet malts, some alcohol. Flavour is sweet, malty, some dark fruits, brown sugar, light chocolate bitter finish with some alcohol. A bit thin in mouthfeel, light to medium bodied. OK, but no more than that.
