alteregoo (238) - POLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Piana grubo pęcherzykowa, błyskawicznie znikająca niemal do zera, barwa brązowa, mętna. W aromacie suszone jabłka, gruszki, rodzynki, trochę owoców leśnych, a w tle ciemne pieczywo i kwas chlebowy. Smak bardziej słodkawy aniżeli kwaskowy, oczywiście suszone owoce są i tu obecne, ale jeżyny i jagody połączone z pieprzem i chlebem razowym stanowią tu podstawę. Goryczka pestkowo-pikantna podbita rozgrzewającym alkoholem i średnim do wysokiego nagazowaniem przyjemnie kontrują daktylową słodycz. W afterteasie przyprawy korzenne, delikatna stajnia i alkoholowe rozgrzewanie. Dobry, bogaty w aromaty i doznania, Dubbel o półsłodkim deserowym profilu. Fajnie zbalansowany, choć nieco zbyt pikantny i ostry w odbiorze.

beeebon (265) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Pours a rich and hazy copper amber colour initially with big billowing tan head which quickly settles. Aroma is figs, brown sugar, bready yeast and caramel malt. Taste is initially quite sweet then medium bitter and lightly sour. Rich yet light mouth feel with medium noticeable carbonation, full bodied. This is a really nice Dubbel and perfect for those times when that is what you want!

RyanK (245) - Rhode Island, USA - MAY 22, 2015
12oz from mixed Bernardus 6p. Pours a mud like brown with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of slightly sour figs with alcohol showing. Body is actually quite light and heavy carbonated. Light easy drinking, taste of light fruits and the alcohol helps accentuate the tastes. Classic style, not my preference but good.

16/05/2015 25cl from tap @Zwembad de Treffer, Waregem. Hazy brown with nice beige head. Light roasted malts, spices, caramel, bitter hops. Nice soft oily mouthfeel

Cristobal37 (335) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Nice abbey dubbel. Medium body with usual fig and candied sugar flavor. Becomes richer and the malt flavor comes out more if you let it warm. Worth a try. On tap at VI. Belgian beer fest Budapest.

Derbeth (449) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle with expiry date 16.09.18, bought in January. Frothy, quickly disappearing head, dark brown colour. Aroma is complex, with raisin, dark bread, brown sugar, and even a bit of hops in the finish. Alcohol noticeable, but does not disturb much. Smooth, very drinkable. Very good.

niquillis (1610) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle from Congress, Longton. Pours deep brown with off white stiff froth. Dark berry, malt, well carbonated. Decent.

Kauge (603) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 7, 2015
33 cl bottle from Špunka in Tallinn (€ 2.92). Murky reddish brown. Head light beige, retains nicely, leaving little lacing. The usual caramel, dark fruits, pear, some inspecific spiciness, brown sugar... Fizzy carbonation, above average body... Metallic, grainy and dry on the palate. I’d definitely prefer Westmalle if in the mood of a Dubbel.
