Deep amber color, toasty toffee/caramel nose, with layers of soft malt and hops. A big beer without being heavy. Extremely well balanced. Brewed under license of the Duinen Monestary by the family owned Huyghe-Melle Brewery.

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 (12440) - 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.

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 (5124) - 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.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2003
Thick and malty - full of dark fruits and bread dough. The palate was thick and chewy (after it warmed - at first the carbonation was too prickly - needed to reach almost room temp) Finish was more dry than sweet and didn't last very long, which seemed appropriate. Deep dark brown - I expected a lighter color(?) - tan head.

Great aroma, raisens, prunes, malt and bread. Lovely dark brown / purple in color. Fine tan head. Taste is bananas, malt and alcohol. Fine fuzziness on the palate. I cannot believe this is a Dubbel, it is very similar to Saint Bernardus Abt 12. Excellent

bierkoning (11411) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2003
Malty, creamy aroma and flavor with caramel and mocha. Sweet beer with just a bit of roasted malt. Some apple and grape fruitiness. Full bodied. Just an average, sweet abbey double.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAR 3, 2003
Prune maltiness is enticing in the aroma but just a little too raw and sticky on the palate. Hearty and warming with alcohol more noticeable than in the tripel.

FezMonkey (268) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 24, 2003
dark amber color with a thick head that slowly dissipates. The first thing I noticed about the beer while pouring war the fruity aroma. Taste has hints of raisins and cherries. Almost like someone has mixed Lindemans Kriek Lambic with a Belgian Ale. Good, but I have had better.

Deep rusty brown colored. Big thick creamy tan head, rolling dense foamy, beautiful! Hints of ripe fruits and toasted barley. A mild vinuous character. Green apples followed by some deep caramel & subtle milk chocolate malt notes and of course theres the alcohol as well. All that in just the nose. tastes of alcohol, which stands quite proud when the beer is too chilly. THen the complexity kicks in full gear. Some caramel notes among the loads of very ripe fruits. Maybe some yeasty hints in there as well. A VERY warm finish, wih notes of flaked barley on the roof. I'm going to share a 750 of this with people more often.
