Brentv (398) - 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.

When you open the bottle I noticed at once a pleasant perfume. Following this sense the aroma is absolutely delicious with roasted malt in the right measure, floral, herbal smell and an accurate touch of caramel. It has a dark brown color and slight turbidity. The cream is bulky and beige with medium duration. The high carbonation is noticeable from the start and roasted malt notes has a beautiful balance as well. The caramel malt, wood, cocoa, licorice and nuts. Has a strong tone and rustic, yet does not appear heavy. He brought me a medium flavor tempered pulling the same and so salty, I could see a slight memory of a brandy because it is volatile and appears just in taste. Alcohol is noticed in the heat that transmits the throat. Long end she is malted reducing cabornatado taste and formatting a very soft palate between good bitterness and light caramel. Medium complexity high is strong and powerful and full-bodied beer just right. Being slightly dry and medium bitterness and prepares the way for the next sip. Due to certain salient features not shown exceptionally balanced, but has a gorgeous footprint. I liked its drinkability.

Caso típico da cerveja que faz juz ao estílo, essa Dubbel não tem o que dizer... Fruit yeast taste, dark color, sweet aroma.

Hammy78 (774) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle from a mix pack. Pours a true copper, quite active, lots of carb, fluffy creame coloured head, loads of thick lacing. Nose is sweet malt, touch of roast, a little spicy. Tastes spicy, sweet malt again, a little heat. Quite smooth.

Jimsal27 (257) - New York, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Tap at the yard house. Ruby red-brown color, thick creamy foam. Aroma of malt, chocolate and caramel. Sweet malt taste, light chocolate, lively on the palate. Great beer.

tmoreau (2563) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a murky, brown tone, with a modest layer of tan head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was malty sweetness, ripened & dried fruit, and a hint of banana. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the flavor’s sweetness was more as brown sugar, esters included some ripe apple, and the alcohol’s disposition was pleasantly warming. Maybe a little age on this bottle, but still tasty.

tonypreto (122) - Akron, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2014
11.2 oz bottle poured into chalice. Aroma of malts and some fruit with a slight almost smokiness. Pours a rich dark brown with a rapidly dissipating light beige head. Very great mouthfeel with a perfect amount of carbonation to it. Flavors of malt and yeast throughout. Exceptional beer.

330cc bottle. One of my favourites from one of my favourite stiles. I always have them home. It just feels that everything in it is where it should be.

Gregus (292) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Butelka; barwa brazowa, zmętniona. Piana bujna, cienka warstwa zostaje do końca. Aromat owocowy, bananowy, przyprawowy, słodowy, ciemnych suszonych owoców, karmelu, wanilii. Smak owocowy, karmelowy, bananowy, przyprawowy. Alkohol rozgrzewajacy, trochę zbyt wyczuwalny. W ustach gładkie.
