330ml bottle into a goblet. Pours a slightly hazy dark brown due to the sediment that got into the glass with a half finger fluffy white head. Really good head retention and decent lacing. Aroma is a little bit weak but I really can pick out brown sugar and vanilla. There is also a slightly musty odor but it is more complimentary than it is distracting. The brown sugar is more muted in the flavor allowing the the banana/clove Belgian yeast character to shine through. More vanilla that is subdued but there is a noticeable lack of complexity compared to some other versions of the style. Mouthfeel is on the watery side with a little bit of stickyness left on the finish. Overall, I am not very impressed by this Dubbel. It really lacks complexity and depth of flavor along with a weak mouthfeel. I feel like this could be a whole lot better with a little bit of work.

It’s really smooth throughout, starting with a scent of bread dough and raisins, a surprisingly light body and hints of sweet and sour on the finish. Liberated from a Christmas 4-pack gift box a few days before the holiday - cheers!

11.578 oz bottle poured into chalice. Great aroma of Belgian yeast and fruits. Pours a dark ruby tinted dark brown with an off white head that dissipates rapidly, but stays thin for the long haul. Very light and slightly carbonated, easy to drink. Flavors of yeast and some fruit notes with a great finish. Low abv for a Belgium makes this a go to for me.

GuideDogSaint (481) - Xiamen, CHINA - DEC 6, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Station, Xiamen. A gusher even after cooling in the fridge for a day. Pours hazy dark brown with a lot of foam that dissipates to a thin off white head. Aroma of malt, toffee and Belgian yeast. Sweet finish. Nice.

adster (437) - HUNGARY - NOV 29, 2014
Gesztenye barna szín, cappuccino-szerű és hosszan tartó habréteg; ilyen egy vizuális téren tökéletes belga apátsági dubbel. Szinte ontja magából a pikánsan élesztős, fűszeres, almás, pirított magvas aromákat, mely összetevők mesterien elevenednek meg az első kortyok során, tejes-tejszínes, enyhén kókuszos és vaníliás, tehát messzemenőkig krémes szerkezetben. Az alkohol szinte láthatatlan, a pörkölt maláta édes alapjain felépülő karakter lebilincselően elegáns, nagyszerűen kiegyensúlyozott, megnyerő modora markáns, ugyanakkor mindenféle szerénytelenség nélküli. Pont olyan, amilyennek a típus egyik mintapéldányának lennie kell.
