Smells like sour cherry carpet cleaner. A cloudy oaken color to it. Tastes like nut flavored clay. No finish. Too much of nothing at the end for me.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 7, 2003
This beer pours a dark brown with a nice sized, thick head (dies flat shortly after) and lots of lacing on the glass. The aroma is malty and sweet. Reminds me slightly of a wheat beer aroma. The flavor is a little sweet and spicy but very smooth. It is very malty in taste and it finished up with a wheat flavor. Pretty decent Belgian Brown.

madsberg (10888) - Sřborg, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2004 Draught: Deep dark amber coloured. Nice brownish head. Not much aroma. Light malty and yeasty. Bland and mild flavour. Some alcahol burn on the palate. Aftertaste is short lasting. Is great with food.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 25, 2003
dark amber color with a nice white lathering head..nutty sourness and mild bananaish yeasty tones emerge from the aroma..very smooth mouthfeel with light touches of yeastiness and hints of nuts..smoothest 8% beer out there as far as im concerned..but nothing really stands out.

Ungstrup (30970) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2003
This beer has a slightly fruity nose. The color is dark red almost brown and it has a beutiful head. The flavor is very nice, very sweet with notes of berries, roasted malt, earth, ending with prickling on the tongue and sweetness. A pretty complex flavor. It is not overwhelmingly "bruin" - but a very nice beer.

NJBeerman013 (1052) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2003
Poured the color of a Coke. It had a rapidly diminishing bubbly head that was a light tan. As far as flavor goes, there was no end to it in this beer. It went from fruity to spicy as it warmed. A very good Dubbel indeed.

Brown with a white head. Spicy, yeasty aroma. Some milk chocolate in the flavor...

argo0 (12440) - 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 (1528) - 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.
