olsvammel (3885) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2011
At St Gummarus pub in Lier, Belgium. It poured a dark amber liquid with a beige head. Sweet and caramely malty. Nice and malty beer with lots of caramel malt.

Bottle from Beer Planet. Dark amber body with puffy, tan head. Nose of sweet malts and spices. Taste is sweet, malty, with caramel and toffee. Quite sweet. Smooth texture. Lactose in the finish. Okay.

dutchbeerpages (1749) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2011
Strange aroma, almost like a cellar with a spicy salami sausage. This also comes bakc in the taste. It is a pretty beer to look at. The aftertaste is tingly, watery and sort of empty. Bottle from De Glimburger in Maastricht.

ElDesmadre (2018) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle. Dark reddish brown color with frothy, lasting head. Aroma is roasted malts, nuts, dark grapes and dried fruit - blackcurrant, apricots, raisins. Sweet and heavy, pleasant scent, which the taste falls short of. Much less fruity than the aroma, the taste is dominated by roasted malts, nuts, some metallic elements, dried fruit quite subdued. High carbonation, a bit too watery texture, bitterness low. Decent enough but slightly disappointing.

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 (4905) - 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 (1683) - 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 (3488) - 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.
