Fritz123 (922) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Draft at the tasting room in Akron, OH. Pours a traditional Belgian dubbel with dark brown colors and a medium sized head. Aroma nice with Belgian yeasts, dark candies, fruit esters, and malts. However the taste was lacking in all departments. I like the bold tastes of the Dubbels and it seemed to lack the boldness of the dark candies, the yeasts, and the floral notes. Rather bland overall and I found it kind of bitter for a dubbel. Medium body, slight oily. Medium carbonation. Finish was bitter.

Draft @ Jungle Jim’s Barrel Aged Beer night. Pours a murky brown color with a large fluffy beige head. The aroma is sweet malts, bourbon, vanilla banana and other fruits. After the nose I was hoping for something a bit more decadent, but the flavors were much more subdued. I still got the caramel, vanilla, bourbon and fruits, but everything seemed muted. Lighter body didn’t measure up to the nose.

Draft at Russo’s. Pours a brownish amber color with a thin off white disappearing head. Aroma is dried fruit, malt sweetness, and fig. Tastes of drank fruit, malt, yeast with a medium body and and smoothness. I liked this better than Cerberus

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Firkin version at Barley’s 9th Annual Mini RAF (05/14/11): The beer is a cloudy brownish-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that burns away quickly. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malt, ripe fruit and yeast. Medium body with flavors of mildly sour fruit, toasted malt, and yeast. The finish is dark fruits and malt. Above average overall.

"Rich brown color with an amber tint, ample head and lots of lacing. Figs, chocolate,mild cherry, toast and yeasty aromas. Medium bodied and fairly clean, nice drinking Dubbel with a smooth finish. Dark fruits, caramel and a hint of chocolate along with a mild earthy yeast."

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2009
On tap at HopCat, Grand Rapids. Transparent garnet body, thin, creamy buff head. Very light nose with some toast; the beer was served cold in an aroma-laden restaurant/bar environment. Plummy, sweet body, thin and not syrupy, finishing with bitter spicy esters.

Beerman6686 (4170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2008
POured a dark copper color with an off white head. Aroma was of dark fruits, borwn sugar and spices. Flavor was a bit weaker, mainly of the darker fruits, nothing stands out very much, very drinkable though

nimbleprop (4553) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 26, 2008
On tap at Rustico in Alexandria, Virginia. Served in a goblet, pours a dark, translucent brown with a thin, creamy white head. Standard aroma for a dubbel, brown sugar, belgian yeast, dark bread, a little bubble gum. Flavor is similar, plenty of dark Belgian candy, breads, dark fruits and yeast. Dry finish. Nothing special, but well crafted.
