Draught at Delirium Cafe. Toffee, cake, dried fruit, yeast, quite thick and oily, fairly sweet finish. Decent and flavorful dubbel, maybe a tad too heavy though.

heavy (2349) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 18, 2015
Feb 15. A 0.33 l bottle, from Svijet Piva store, Zagreb. Thanks Zlatko! It poured hazy brown body with medium sized head. Again, unusually hoppy for the Belgian stuff, but its an inevitable trend. Lightly sour and sweet flavor, a typical dubbel. Heavy red wine, dried fruits, caramel and burnt sugar. Medium body, for the style quite full, although 8% ABV was evident. Simple sweet&sour finish, again more or less typical. Seems like rb people really like dubbels, this one was least enjoying of the three for me, although without any flaws.

lello4ever (405) - ITALY - DEC 6, 2015
Birra marrone scuro con schiuma beige di poca persistenza. Al naso malto, caramello, dark fruits. La bevuta un po incerta tra il dolce e qualche sentire acidulo. Carbonazione buona alcol in evidenza. Non cos buona come speravo.

HammerTroll (1015) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 25, 2015
Cloudy brown color, medium sized tan head. Aroma is mostly bubblegum and brown sugar. Taste is similar, with dark fruits and resins as a bonus. Pretty sweet and sugary. Medium body, over-carbonated. Sweet plum and grapes finish. Nice enough. //Craft Room

blackisle (1525) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Very dark amber brown, small frothy beige head, recedes quickly, light lacing; aroma is malty, caramel, red fruit, sour cherry, tart; taste is medium sweet and light sour, fruity, light caramel; medium body, oily to sticky texture, flat carbonation, aftertaste is sweet and sour, fruity, spicy notes; as an Sour Brown okay (but not like the real thing), certainly not a Dubbel.

kapusil (958) - HUNGARY - NOV 22, 2015
0.33l bottle. Very dark brown body, light brown foam. Aroma and taste of sour cherry, toast, roasted malts, orange zest and maybe a bit of vinegar. Quite suprisingly sour for a dubbel. Its more like an oud bruin. Anyways, its nice.

9/20/2010 1:22:07 PM Bottle from Beer Planet. A nice dubbel from Huyghe, although I realise I like the style less and less. Amber body with tall head. Nose of caramel, malts, sugar. Quite sweet and poignant. Nice texture.

ForlornHope (286) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a clear dark brown with a thin head. Aroma is slightly sour fruit and yeast, with rich roasted malt. Taste: slightly sweet, tart and dry. Rich malt, stewed fruits and a lactic, almost balsamic finish. Ending tart and dry. Im not sure that the lactic, tart flavours in this are intentional, reading the other reviews. I hope they are; it makes this better than a run-of-the-mill dubbel. Will try this again sometime. For now, I quite like this.

Vinx (94) - ITALY - JUL 5, 2015
Aroma of mature fruit, caramel, floral esters, with some chocolate toasted hints. The attenuation is high, as its style requires, so that the finish is quite bitter and pleasantly dry. A small quantity of roasted malts gives some astringency. Rocky foam, proper high carbonation. A fine dubbel.
