argo0 (11913) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 3, 2003
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.

Darkover (1524) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2003
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.

YogiBeera (2534) - New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2003
Cherry and malt nose, slightly skunky. Mahagony with a medium white head, leaving laces on the glass. Malty and nutty taste. Light with a long lasting bitter aftertaste.

pivo (2622) - GERMANY - APR 22, 2003
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.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - APR 8, 2003
A great dissapointment. It looks good. The aroma is very strange. It smells wrong. It is not very pleasant. The flavour reminds me of dark German wheat beer. Very wheaty and yeasty. Thin bodied.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - APR 8, 2003
Not the most interesting dubbel. Quite yeaty which I find a little out if place in a Belgian style dubbel. The 8 % ABV is hidden good in the yeast dominated palate. Extremely nice head.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 3, 2003
Dark red brown body topped by a medium thick off white head with a good amount of lace left behind. Slightly spicy and bready malt aroma with fruity (banana and orange) notes and a hint of alcohol and mint. Sweet and fruity malt flavor with a slight spiciness and a coffee/chocolate finish. Full bodied, smooth, yet tingling on the tongue and slightly warming.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Pours a nice, clear reddish brown color with a medium sized off-white head that lingers. It has a nice, spicy aroma with yeast and hop notes. Full bodied with medium carbonation, the palate is very smooth and the flavor is nicely malty up front and the finish is sweet and slightly yeasty. A good Dubbel.

dberger624 (1028) - Phila, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2003
om a shared 750ml big bottled. Nice beer. A little to easy drinking because it didn't have much flavor. Smell and looked more powerful then it tasted.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Dark amber with a medium creamy off white head. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Slight chocolate taste with some fruit, apple/pear. No alcohol in taste or aroma even on warming. Nice chewy mouthfeel.
