Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Dark fruit aroma - figs, raisins. Pours a cloudy brown with a mostly diminishing ivory head and fine lacing. Taste is lightly sweet - prunes, raisins perhaps a hint of caramel. The finish is quick. Medium bodied and creamy balanced with fizzy carbonation. Overall, an excellent Dubble. Will drink again

Bulk_Carrier (3709) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - SEP 15, 2016
This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a dark brown color with a fairly quickly dissipating slim finger’s worth of white to almost off white foamy head that just slides into oblivion. Extremely thin white lacing gracing the sides of the glass. The aroma finds some sweet glossy "iced apple" roaming into a sly clove spice and then a nice sweet bready maltiness finding itself nicely fitting it and just bringing it all together. The flavor is bready sweet with the clove slyly moving in underneath. Semi-dry bready with a sly clove-like spice hitting the aftertaste nicely. Barely any finish in this one, but somehow I seem okay with that (yeah, just seems to move super quick). On the palate, this one sat about a deep light to medium on the body with a sly sessionability to it. It wants to show some "gulping" feel to it, but the carb reads the riot act on the sweetness of the breadiness. Okay, hmmmm...yeah, I’ll just say it feels spectacular. Overall, as a Belgian Dubbel, damn right! Yesssssssss, tell me another for the style that’s better, hard stare, yup, you all know it, haha

kaserov (167) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 13, 2016
Color marrón no muy oscuro, turbio, con capa de espuma mínima de un blanco amarronado. Poca carbonatación (más presente en boca). Aroma leve, suave, a fruta, a levadura y un mínimo de alcohol. Sabor ligeramente dulce, frutal, maltoso. Alcohol prácticamente inexistente en boca. Interesante el tema de la carbonatación, porque a la hora de meterla en boca y tragarla el efecto que se produce es de mis preferidos. Una delicia de Dubbel.

artyom (980) - Osijek, CROATIA - AUG 27, 2016
0.33l bottle. Brown color with tanned head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, plums and raisins. Taste is malty with some herbal notes and light to medium bitterness. Medium to full body and slightly bitter aftertaste. Overall it’s very good beer.

PlutonowyMan (479) - POLAND - AUG 21, 2016
Kolor ciemno br?zowy, rubinowy, raczej jest klarowny. Piana w kolorze ecru, nie jest imponuj?ca, niska, niezbyt trwa?a. Redukuj?c si?, tworzy zaledwie cienk? warstewk? z grubszym pier?cieniem przy obrze?ach pokala. W aromacie karmel, dalej ciemne owoce, sma?one, rodzynki, oalono??. Po ogrzaniu, niestety pojawi? si? zapach a’la rozpuszczalnik. W smaku niestety alkohol i to do?? ordynarny, palono??, popio?owa, sma?one ciemne owoce, rodzynki, nieco orzechów. Finisz raczej wytrawny, lekko kawowy. Goryczka karmelowa, "przypalona", krótka i na finiszu. Wysycenie wysokie, troch? przeszkadza.

mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Tummanruskea olut vaaleahkolla/beigellä, paksulla ja pitkään kestävällä vaahdolla, joka jättää omaan lasiinsa hienon pitsin. Hiivaa reilusti, näkyy vaahdon pinnalla ja runsaana määränä myös leijailemassa oluen seassa. Maltainen ja makeahko tuoksu. Maku keskitäyteläinen, makea ja pehmeä. Ihan kiva, mutta häviää tietysti isoveljelleen.
