badgerben (4577) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Black color with a thin head. Aroma of bread. The bread turns bitter in the taste. There really isnít much depth here other than some yeast and bread. Decent, but not great.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2004
Hugely yeasty, malty and fruity aroma. Plenty of yeast in suspension in the amber-brown body with lasting covering of small-bubbled, tan head. Sweet, malty, caramelly flavour with plums and raisins. and a decent balancing bitterness. Cremy, chewy mouthfeel and medium-full body. A nice way to warm up before heading out for the Grey Cup game in Ottawa. Bottle enjoyed with CapFlu and Lubiere.

Brown ale with reddish hues, off white head. Sweet fruity malt aroma, and sweet raisiny malts with a nice hop/alcohol moutfeel which was sustained, Creamy and complex. Thanks to Capflu.

CapFlu (4733) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2004
(750ml bottle) Pours a creamy yellowish-head and a cloudy deep-brown body. The nose is very yeasty with malt and fruity undertones. I enjoyed the light and quaffable creamy and heavy malt taste. Enjoyable yet drinking the whole 750ml bottle in a night might be a daunting task...

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2005 I am going to rate this for real now. Pours a very dark brown which looks nearly identical to the Westy 8. That would make sense because they are brewed in the same town. The aroma is very fruity with raisins being the dominant fruit. There is quite a bit of white wine in the aroma as well. The taste has quite a bit of similarity to the Westy 8 with the white wine palate added to it. There is also the great maltiness which is recognizable from this brewery. This is similar to the 12 except it is less complex and not quite as good in my opinion. This is a really fine beer and one of the greatest examples of a Dubbel I have had.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2011 Murky brown, rocky off white head, fades to thick film, spotty lacing. Prune/fig/raisin up front in nose, clove, spice, alcohol, really dig it. Flavor not quite as nice, rather muted. Faint dark fruit, alcohol and not much else. Not bad, just not what you would expect after aroma. Billowy mouthfeel, flimsy at times.
