cpetrone84 (1271) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Pours a chestnut brown with ruby edges and a light toffe colored head. The nose has candied sugars and carmelized brown sugar with a light metal twang. Very water, light yeast note and some faint pear. The taste is heavily sugar based, carmelized brown sugar and candied sugars primarily with a touch of yeast, light nut and pear in the back. Watery in taste and in body, thin and low carbonation.

Mainuh_man (37) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours a clear brown with a rocky tan head. Really nice, rich, fruity aroma. Initial flavor is sweet belgian candi sugar with some hints of cherry. Middle transitions to a mild, dry bitterness with some burnt sugar and roasted malt flavor. Finishes with warm alcohol and and mild bitterness and cloying sugar in the back of the throat. Mild carbonation with a heavy body and thick mouthfeel. Overall, ok beer. Really nice aromas, and typical heavy, bruin texture without a ton of complexity in the flavor profile.

Capa (1963) - Manama, BAHRAIN - APR 27, 2014
Pour is deep brick red with a tan head. Aroma is sweet fruits, raisin, plum, brown sugar, sweet malt. Full bodied with refined (i.e. tiny bubbles) carbonation. Flavor lacks a bit of the depth of the aroma but is still once. Plum and raisin, some light sweet ripe fruit, and a bit of alcohol that leads us to the finish. A decent dubbel but I wish the flavor stood up with the aroma.
