BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Auburn color with nice head a average lacing for this type of pour. Aroma is lightly malty with not much nuttiness and a more belgian quality to it. Flavor is like a belgian dubbel...holy shit, this is a belgian dubbel! I'm so confused and satisfied at the same time.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Nice amber pour with ample white head and nice lacing. Yeast and dough in the aromas, hints of a fruit I can't put a finger on. Nice fruity flavors, still not an id on the fruit, a bit of bitterness hanging about. Dry finish.

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Brown with a tan colored head. Fruity yeast aroma with a slightly alcoholic smell to it. Brown sugar/raisin/malt flavor that doesn't quite hide the alcohol in the taste.

jimhilt (2377) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Pours with a five-fingered plus faint brown,thick head that fades slowly and leaves thick lace. Pour this one very slowly. Good carbonation. A deep red-brown color. Nose is malty/alcohol with raisins. Starts sweet and malty, finishes smooth and roasty.

CapFlu (4364) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2003

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2003 I'm surprised this isn't rated a bit higher. This is one decent dubbel in my opinion. Dark, brown and cloudy with an enormous frothy head with fantastic retention. Aroma is fruity, spicy, sugary and malty. Has a great full body and goes down quite smooth with none of the 8% noticable at all. Flavor although not as complex as others, is a good malty raisiny sweet yummy brew. You must give this a try!

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Indra (2570) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Sweet, sugary malt aroma, some caramel/toffee, faint spices and estery yeast. Medium red-brown color, with a lasting, creamy head and fine lace. Malty, sweet profile, some brown sugar, raisin, peppery spice, hop bitterness and tinges of alcohol towards the finish. Sweetness becomes cloying, and lacking somewhat in complexity.
