UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Draught: Deep dark amber coloured. Nice brownish head. Not much aroma. Light malty and yeasty. Bland and mild flavour. Some alcahol burn on the palate. Aftertaste is short lasting. Is great with food.

dark amber color with a nice white lathering head..nutty sourness and mild bananaish yeasty tones emerge from the aroma..very smooth mouthfeel with light touches of yeastiness and hints of nuts..smoothest 8% beer out there as far as im concerned..but nothing really stands out.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer has a slightly fruity nose. The color is dark red almost brown and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is very nice, very sweet with notes of berries, roasted malt, earth, ending with prickling on the tongue and sweetness. A pretty complex flavor. It is not overwhelmingly "bruin" - but a very nice beer.

Poured the color of a Coke. It had a rapidly diminishing bubbly head that was a light tan. As far as flavor goes, there was no end to it in this beer. It went from fruity to spicy as it warmed. A very good Dubbel indeed.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cola brown, pouring with a light-tan, big head that diminishes pretty rapidly. Aroma is fairly sweet, tangy spice (including mint?), some dark fruit, hay. Taste is fairly sweet, milk chocolate, fruity, some tangyness. Creamy body, medium carbonation. Interesting combination of smells and tastes, but ultimately, not something I wholly embrace.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 30, 2003 Dark ruby color with a big beige head. Heavy lacing. Aroma is smokey and malty. Flavor is sweet, very malty, caramel, coffee, roast. Heavy body. Almost stout like. This is better when cold, it gets too sweet when it warms.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly artificial chemical nose, deep mahagony color, tall fluffy head and very carbonated. Light caramel malt flavor witha spicy finish (pepper, cinnamon). Thinish, but a decent balance. Not spectacular, but a quality beer for sure.
