Bottle. Pours cloudy, almost chunky medium brown with a huge light tan head. Aroma is very fruity, quite yeasty, moderately sweet, light citrus. Flavor is all that plus dates, toffee, slightly pungent yeast, some candy sugar. Rather boozy. Odd palate -- astringent, almost burns?! Good stuff, except for the odd palate.

In t’Bruges Beertje - a nice robust dubbel with loads of flavour, big boozy kick in there. Made all the better by the atmosphere in the pub. Lots of sweetness in there, a bit of maltiness, cake fruits et al. Very nice to look at too.

Not really what I was expecting, but an interesting beer nonetheless. Nose is all sweet... dark bread, brown sugar and yeast. Up front the mouth is earthy and then maybe caramel with a bitter, acidic finish that is almost overpowering. Mouthfeel is dominated by the needles from the acidic finish, but it also quite foamy in the mouth. Nice stuff, for sure. Pours brown with a small layer of head that sticks around, little lacing. Opaque with lots of sediment in the bottle.

11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours weird brown with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel malts, some sugar and chocolate, a little floral hops, and some alcohol. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer for the style.

Gerbeer (2274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2012
330 ml bottle via BelgianShop. Pours a medium brown with a huge head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, and dried dark fruit. Spicy flavor with distinct dark fruit notes (dates?). A little sweet. Acidic finish.

prawlie (1247) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2012
33 cL bottle into own glass at the Brugse Beertje. Dark red with a good head on it. Heavily spiced and hopped. Spiced aroma, not much else. Strong spice taste dominates.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2013 Very hazy brown color with fine head. Sweet, strong, toffee aroma and taste..

Stubby 330 ml with label art that doesn’t work for me. At first opening, I fear it’s a gusher the way the foam bursts out. But that’s not the case and it calms down. Muddy orange-brown. Very strong aroma followed by strong taste. Dates, yes. Honey, not so sure. It isn’t too sweet or boozy. I hear they don’t make this anymore.

ClubGonzo (4562) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a big foamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel, red berries, dark malts and hints of raisins and hibiscus. Taste is burnt caramel, deep malts, hints of dried fruits. Herbs and grass in the aftertaste. Thin body, medium carbonation and a rather dry and non-fruity finish - all in all a bit weird for a dubbel, but not too bad either. But where are the dates? Brewed with dates? Where?

Coppery colored pour underneath an over-sized off-white head. Lacing. Smells of pepper, malt and applesauce. Taste is big on malt with a caramel sweetness. A little dry and very carbonated. It was hard to tame this one into the glass. Not bad.
