Brentv (336) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 From bottle, pours hazy dark brown with tints of orange and a HUGE light beige head. Head was 6 inches before I had 1/4 inch of beer in the glass. Dense fine foam lasts forever. Aroma is caramel and dark fruits with Belgian yeast. Taste similar, mildly sweet with some bitterness. Perfect medium body. Lovely.

brianza_ale (88) - ITALY - MAY 27, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 Hazy brown colour (not that dark), medium/large head which dissolves to a nice 1 cm layer. Beautiful cake, toffee, caramel, brown sugar aroma, with a little hint of licorice. Tastes caaake, dried friuts, dates, cookies, belgian yeasts, with a little licorice/( smaaall coffee) perfectly sweet end. Leaves a fresh, bit dry, perfect sweet balanced palate. 100 % malts here, but with an incredible balance. A lower gravity sister of the St. Bernardus Abt 12, so you can defenitely discover where those deep belgian flavours come from. One of the best dubbels on the planet, if not the best. A must taste, if you love dark belgians

AdiBeer (1026) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Aroma: caramel, honey. Appearance: medium hazy dark, medium beige head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: initial sweets make way for light bitters, getting a bit bitter, caramel sweets in the background. Overall: nice Abbey Dubbel. Bottle at ’t Brugs Beertje, Bruges.

The body has a dark burgundy color with lighter reddish high lights. On top the head was about one finger thick and hangs on well but slowly fades to a ring of foam around the edge of the glass. It is light tan in color and makes some spotty and slippery lacing. In the node dark fruity and estery notes mix with a mild sweet alcohol presence. Its flavor has a pleasant sweet and malty complexity. There are hints of dates and figs sweetened by Belgian sugar, warmed by a mellow brandy like alcohol presence and tempered by some mild bitterness of hops. The palate has a smooth but lively texture with active carbonation.
