DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2003
Pours with a creamy, lasting head. Color, like weak coffee. Unbelievable aromas, starting chilled from the fridge with nice fresh hops, and bready malt, warming and evolving to include, vanilla, some chocolate, fruits, mainly banana and cocoanut, also sour mash whiskey. Nice roasted malt flavor, less complex than the aroma, but nice - sweet, fruity, lightly bitter with come coffee and a noticeable alcohol presence. Really, really nice though not as luscious in the mouth as the Westy/Rocheforts these St Bernardus beers have been compared to.

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.

Cristobal37 (334) - 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 (447) - 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 (1582) - 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 (593) - 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.

roald76 (19) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2015

mateuszk (348) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown, creamy stable head. Malty with dried fruits and bananas in aroma. In taste fruity, malty with candi syrup noticable. Alcohol well hidden. Medium bodied, oily texture, high carbonation. Very good dubbel.

Hamirubi (221) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2015
33cl bottle at home. A medium strong Belgian dubbel, high in carbon, brown sugar sweetness, some vanilla too. Full of character, with some earthy flavours and forest fruits. Not as classic and overwhelming as the quadrupple, but something to have on the beer map, for sure.
