Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2002
A dark red beer with a good head. It has a sweet aroma. And a sweet taste - of a great malt blend - it’s not bitter at all. A realy good beer.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Brown and surprisingly clear beer, huge, frothy head. Caramel and candy sugars in the flavour with some roasted malt. Could do with a bit more body - this is surprisingly almost watery for a Dubbel. 170398

omhper (23711) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2006
Bottled. Very dark ruby, minimal head. Roasty coffee aroma. Medium sweet with clean mouthfeel and medium body. Lightly salty. Once it warms ash and fruits are revealed, but it doeasn’t really cover the somewhat sharp and metallic finish.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2003
Dark amber color, thick creamy head. Light caramel aroma. Harsh mouthfeel, dry; poor structure, with a rising final of burnt sugar, bitter caramel and a strong bitterness; lightly metallic. Just a bit less unbalanced than the Blonde.

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2012
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Valentines Day! Pours clear, red-brown with a huge, off-white head. Some dark fruits in the nose, berries. Medium sweet flavor, ripe fruits, very faint caramel. Fairly juicy. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Sweet finish, more berries and other ripe fruits, some lightly toasted malts. A pretty easy drinking dubbel.

rlgk (18322) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2005
Amber with an offwhite head. Aroma from tar, chocolate, licorice and some plum. Spicy flavor with tar and chocolate. Quite salyt, especially in the finish. More like a stout than abbey dubbel, but still quite good.

Koelschtrinker (17704) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 7, 2011
Malziger Antrunk, der viel zu früh von einem herben Ton unterbrochen wird. Mild, im Unterton würzig mit Potential, dass kaum genutzt wird. Das Malz zeigt sich im Abgang noch einmal deutlich, es wird stärker und röstmalzig. Daneben fehlen aber andere Aromen, die das Bier interessanter machen. Der leicht bitter-metallerne Ton tut dies sicher nicht. Test vom 8.10.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,9,9,8,10,9 - 9,00
