pours cloudy if not murky light brown, orange and grey tint, with a frothy and creamy very bubbly light beige head, good retention and strong lacing. minty bubblegum, spicy and fruity belgian classic strain - trappist-like, shy fruitiness - berries and cinnamon sprinkled apples, spicy caramel, hint of sweetness - golden candi and brown sugar, hint of tobacco, lots of pepper. lively and foamy carbonation - settling, light body, assertive if not pungent woodsy-grassy-spicy finish. classic yet average belgian dubbel. their grand cru had a lot more to offer, malt-wise.

tricksta_p (1508) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2014
Aroma of sweet dark malt, brown sugar, nuts, candy sugar, ripe dark fruit. Flavour is sugary sweetness, a bit too much for my taste. A bit thin and overly sweet.

tom10101 (3278) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy brown with a frothy beige head and good lacing. Aroma of candi sugar, some spices and dark fruits. Taste is slightly sweet and spicy with candi sugar, dark fruits and hints of banana. Medium body (a tad light for the style). Medium carbonation. Mild, but lingering spicy finish. Lack of depth and body. Decent Dubbel.

rodenbach99 (3305) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Une belle petite bouteille 16/05/2015. Robe acajou, mousse épaisse, collante, nez épicée, noisette, bouche avec forte amplitude, piquante, épicée, longue manque de caramel ou chocolat. J’aime les Dubbel mais celle-ci lui manque quelque chose.

SlovakSniper (3436) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
33 cl. À consommer de préférence avant le 16/05/15. Robe brune sur laquelle flotte mousse assez forte. Nez de sucre brun et de raisins liquoreux. Goût bien malté sans être trop sucré et impression de brandewijn. Bouche huileuse et pétillement modéré à élevé. Finale courte et un peu chaude. Appréciable.

Een lekker donker biertje zoals het hoort: met goed wat smaak aan. Net zoals de blonde

mathieuc (1663) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 Pours a dark brown with a medium-high offwhite head that leaves superior lacing. Nose is of dark fruits (raisins) and some candi sugar. Taste is sweet-ish and features more grapes and some burnt sugar. Body is medium and carbonation more than sufficient. Overall a nice dubbel, not too sweet or phenolic.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2014
I’m more into the fruity and spicy Belgian beers. This dark brown beer with a light taste of rye bread is ok but not my favorite type.
