This brew poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized light brown bubbles with a transparent brown body. It has a mild malty alcohol aroma and starts slightly fizzy then leaves a strong alcohol taste while leaving spiced notes in the aftertaste.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2003
Dark muddy brown color.Smallish head. Fairly sweet aroma mostly banana.Smooth and very easy to drink. As it gets warmer you will taste some alcohol but overall a really good dubbel.

Shag (2738) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2003
Aroma is nice with a malty scent. Appearance is reddish brown with a decent head. Flavor is sour with a wheat and apple punch. Palate is somewhat thin but flavorful. Good Abbey with a unique flavor.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2003
This dubbel pours a dark, murky, brown color with a small, mostly diminishing, tan head. The aroma is fruity and slightly sour with some yeastiness. Medium body with medium carbonation, the palate is smooth and the flavor is fruity with hints of apples, yeasts, and malts. This one has a very interesting flavor. The beer is smooth and quite drinkable, it is one of the better dubbels I have had.

haukur (1532) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - APR 10, 2003
very good dark abbey beer. I got a hold of two bottles of this last christmas, never seen it since.. It was a bit malty, tiny hint of fruit. It had a very nice aroma.. I will re-rate this when I get a chance of having this delicious beer again

JMerritt (1915) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2003
Clear, dark ruby red colored, nice big head that was mostly diminshing, but it did leave a nice, thin white layer behind. Musty, cobweb-y aroma, like walking into an infrequently used room in your grandmother's house. Aroma also has a touch of Bazooka Joe bubblegum intermingled. Alcohol smell is detectable after a long, deep sniff. Mildly fruity in flavor. When it warms, alcohol is definitely present in the middle and finish, leaving the mouth tingly like after using mouthwash. I only recommend drinking this at a slightly chilled temperature.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2003
Clear dark amber coloured beer with a medium light brown head. A rather straight forward beer but maybe a bit flat. It has a slightly roasted taste. This beer is sort of ok but nothing you would remember.

argo0 (12640) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 31, 2003
Dark brown with some floaties, creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet, molasses, raisin. Taste is fairly sweet, some anise, not much depth. Palate is very smooth, with a medium/light body.

dberger624 (1028) - Phila, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2003
750ml Bottle. Not a bad dubbel. Found this a little more carbinated that some dubbels I've had. Had a prune taste in the beginning which I didn't care for. (Don't like prunes), Did fade after awhile.

JPDIPSO (5153) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2003
33CL Bottle. Dark slightly hazy brown orange. with a full tan head. Bananas, raspberries, toffee and light chocolate aromas. Very fizzy feel. Malt and and light floral hops flavors. Mild notes of darker fruits. While quite good, I just do no get very excited about most dubbels... Somewhat like red/amber ales while flavorful just nothing to really stir the senses.
