fiulijn (14513) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2003
Very dark color; giant, rocky head. Sweet malt aroma, chemicals, cookies. Original flavor for an Abbey Dubbel: malt, dry roasted malt, light coffee, light liquorice. The final is sweeter and simple, just caramel and liquorice, not enough hop.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2003
750 ml bottle for Thanksgiving 2003. Chestnut brown color with a moderate head. Understated aroma, sweet and malty, but plain. Big, frothy mouthfeel, though not especially tingling with the carbonation. I found it hard to identify either spice or fruit, instead just the adequate but unexceptional caramel sweetness. Mediocre in a Belgian sort of way.

jazz88 (2556) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Bottle. A tea brown color with a laced tan head and a spicy (clove, ginger), malt and sugar aroma. The alcohol is noticeable as the beer warms and adds a slightly harsh medicinal finish.

Nose of caramel, bitter fruit. Sweet and creamy smooth with hints of mocha, raisin, gingerbread. Nice.

larsniclas (5607) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2005 Draught at The Rover, Gothenburg. Dark chestnut colour with an off-white head. A fine, yeasty, hoppy flavour. Carpenter shop(?) Rather flat and thin and too sweet. Chocolate in the flavour.

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.

brown with a nice head, not the thickest but looks nice atop the beer. faint hints of bubblegum and yeast and alcohol. flavor is sweet with alcohol in the finish.
