heemer77 (5283) - 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 (9217) - 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 (1678) - 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.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2005
Aroma of sweet malt, toffee and caramel, cloudy pomegranate, pours a huge, firm, toffee head, yards of lace. Flavour has bitter malts, rich caramel, treacle, almonds and red plums. Complex, extremely well balanced, very smooth, with an appreciated bitterness. Sensational! Thanks Michael Robis of Chester’s.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 5, 2005
Brown colour with a off-white head. Sweet yeasty fruity aroma and a sweet light alcoholic taste. Medium body and a sweet light alcoholic finish.

3.7
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2005
An eight percenter that pours a good head that leaves a nice amount of lacing on the glass. It has a full rich brown color. The smell of wheat, yeast, and a mild hint of hops catches the nose and warns the palate. This beer enters the mouth with a mild bitter taste that has the hint of malt and hops. The aftertaste lingers well and fades just as you are ready to take another drink.

stouby (4392) - Holbæk, DENMARK - APR 2, 2005
Bottle, in Gent. Brown with light brown head, almost lasting. Excellent lacings. Aroma and flavor of fruit, brown sugar and light of hops. Medium to full body, oily, soft carbonation.

Pimgref (86) - Gorinchem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2005
Quite a good dubbel. Good appearance. Tastes of fruit and chocolat. Try some more of this brand.
