Just like the golden but with a bit more flavor to it. Chocolate, nutty, coffee flavor. Wonderful

Pours a dark murky caramel brown with a large tan pillowy head. Complex malty aroma with good bready Belgian yeast. Body is semi-sweet with an earthy chocolate palate with lots of carbonation. A good Belgian ale with nice flavor that won't knock you out.

Yep, the alcohol is here. Nutty and sweet. Yeasty. The problem here is that there should or at least could be more flavors.

I bought this beer because of the bottle. Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a nicely cloudy, dark-brown with little head that quickly disappears. Aroma is sweet with walnuts, hazelnuts, molasses, and slight alcohol. Flavor is nutty, yeasty, and alcoholicy... not much else. Easily drinkable. Sampled at 73 degrees Fahrenheit.

Ruby body with little carbonation and a quickly diminishing off-white head. Sweet malt aroma of raisins and pepper. Light hops and yeast. Moderately sweet start followed by moderately bitter finish. Alcohol is pronounced.

Tasty Belgian ale. Aroma is nice and complex with hints of raisins, spice, and alcohol. Pours up big fluffy head that is mostly diminishing. Beer is burgandy colored and exhibits light lacing. Nice complex flavor to compliment the aroma. Almost excellent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Comes around with a nice ruby copper tone and a nose full of brown sugar, raisins, and yeast. Decent head, some fine microbubble sheets form on the side of the glass. Beginning
is a shade on the sweet side, but rounds out into a slightly sour ending which is quite nice. It has Trappiste overtones, but it's not quite as complex. Good, but I find myself searching
for more flavors that aren't there.

Bottle. A very dark reddish brown color with a big light foamy brown head. A pepper and sweet malt aroma. Smooth and rich flavor with earthy malts and some dark fruits.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Nice malty full flavored aroma. A welcome break from the poor quality bees I have rated recently. It poured a huge head of light brown small bubbles. When it receded, it left little or no lacing. It has a cloudy dark brown body. It's flavor is different. It was smooth and no after bite or remarkable fore taste. All in all, it was a good brew to watch the war news on. The bottle is a nice brown ceramic flip top container.

Hazy dark amber color; generous head. Some malt, caramel, liquorice nose. Same impression in the mouth, lacking a character and some more bitterness; a bit astringent in the beginning, sweeter when more oxydized. Not my favourite Dubbel.
