3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I think the Tripel is a better choice of the two. As noted, this one has a flavor dominated by alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. It’s more like an oud bruin. Anyways, it’s 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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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. I’m 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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Dark brown with week tan head, syrup aroma, sugars, chocolate biscuit, something dry, strange, taste is not good. Thick beer. Not bad, but there is something wrong.
