Aroma is some red fruits, figs, alcohol and diacetyl. Taste is rather dry, again dark fruits and some wood. Finish is malty and fruity.

I decided to pour this into a goblet to open it up. Once poured the head disapated almost intently, leaving a small 1/8 inch layer of beautiful head. The beer is a dark rubyish color, or as I call it, mahogany. The aroma from the glass is of toffee and caramel. The flavor of this Dubbel is strong at first, and then it mellows into its greatness. There is a very light amount of lacing with this beer as well. This Dubble is really nice especially when comparing it to several others that I have tried. After a few sips, my mouth feels clean, as if I had just drank water...this is not a bad thing, as the flavor of the beer is still lingering.

Cybercat (3278) - Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Has a strong, malty aroma with a spicy undertone and a hint of apple. It pours a semi-transparent mahogany with a thin and not too persistent light tan head. Flavor is malty with an undertone of apple and a hint of caramel. Texture is smooth yet subtly fizzy, and it leaves a fairly persistent soft tingle and just a whisper of sweetness.

POLK (2219) - Hřrning, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2011
A nice Belgian ale that just gets better and better from sip to sip. A dark, top fermented abbey, with a high fermentation process. It is reasonably strong with a gentle flavor of caramel malt. The bittersweet taste characterizes this beer.

presario (4611) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2010
Ceramic bottle with ceramic stopper. Dark beer with deep red highlights. Fair foam head. Nice fruit aroma with scents of cherry, pineapple and plum and hints of chocolate and yeast. Similar light fruit flavour. A little airy, light body and cherry pineapple. Could be more if deeper and darker.

Swing top from pikapp327. Pour is dark a with white head. Aroma is a little roasted, carbonation, and cocoa. Taste isn’t overly aggressive, some bitter cocoa, roasted malt, a slight fruitiness, and licorice.

Bottle courtesy of pikapp327. Dark brown color; murky. Aroma is raisins, dark fruit and malts. Flavor is dark fruit, harsh tendencies and spaceships. Lacing is evident. Not bad.

AndyReynolds (879) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a nice red hue. Aroma is sweet malts. Notes of dark fruit, bread, apple, and some yeast come out. On the palate it is highly carbonated, but super smooth. A very good mouthfeel. The flavor brings out the dark fruit, finishing dry. Good, but nothing special.
