BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - JUN 23, 2005

joergen (24774) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2005
Bottled. Clear red brown coloured with a solid and lacing beige head. Sweet aroma of malts, spices and yeast with fruity notes. Nice sweet and malty flavour with notes of spices, yeast and alcohol. Dry finish with yeasty notes.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Amber body with a bunch of floaties...almost "chunks". There was a bit of a burnt chocolate coming through on this one. Slightly sweet aroma.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Medium amber body with a thick frothing white head and lots of large floaties. Slight malts and caramel in both aroma and flavor. Smooth body with a slight sweet finish. Pretty standard brown/dubbel. I like the tripel much better.

guzzler67 (1615) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Mahogany appearance with a large, tan head and decent lacing. Initial aroma was musty, but caramel malts rode to the rescue. Sometimes, one of those weird deScriptions gets stuck in your mind, in this case it’s a root beer float. Odd. Sweet from start to finish, with a slight metallic taste toward the end.

heemer77 (5217) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2005
On tap at my local brewpub. Dark amber body. The aroma is light toasted bread with some some banana peels. The taste is cooked peaches with a hint of nutmeg. The thin mouthfeel slightly detracts from the overall experience.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2005
A solid, solid dubbel. It is mild and deep at the same time, welcoming the drinker sip by sip by sip as its flavors unfold. An excellent beer for introducing "virgins" to the joys of Belgian beer--no harsh flavors but lots of subtlety.

MoritzF (9015) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2005
(bottle) Dark amber colour with a big frothy off-white head and nice lace. Aroma of caramellish malts and yeast. Medium body and carbonation with a creamy texture. Malty start with soft sweetness while the alcohol is detectable. Soft, dry and roastmalty finish. Well made Dubbel.

diabel (1650) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2005
Bottle Deep brown body. Off-white, creamy head. Good lace. Nose of malts. Light bitter, light sweet flavour. Just another abbey dubbel.

BrianG (44) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2005
Poured a golden brown with a nice head. There was lacing along the glass as the beer was drunk. Malt and caramel. Smooth beer with slightly bitter finish, but the bitterness does not linger. Good beer.
