Sammy (11175) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2009
On tap at The Ginger Man. A Belgian strong with an amber brown body. Average Belgian, decent beer. Not extraordinary. A bit of yeast aroma, a bit above average mouthfeel. OK drinkability.

smashteroid (262) - Alabama, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Served on tap at Ginger Man NYC. Pours a golden amber body with an modest off-white head. Aroma of fruits, malts and yeast. Sweet flavor, hints of malt, caramel and spices. Full-bodied and smooth. An enjoyable session beer, but not for those who enjoy "extreme" beers.

hopdog (11551) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2009
On tap at the Craft Ale House. Poured a deeper golden/amberish color with a smaller sized off whtie head. Aromas of fruitness, bready, and some spiciness. Tastes of the same fruitiness, bready, lighter spices, and some candi sugar sweetness. Lively body.

Nejhleader (1451) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2009
kind of a disappointment. Didn’t have much of anything to it, a bit of a sugary candy taste, decent body, but their abbey 6 is better.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Draft at Barcade. Pours a golden orange body with an off white head. Floral sweet with hints of apples and caramel. Chewy moderately sharp co2, light bubble gum and banana’s. Good brew.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Pours a mostly clear deep copper (not amber at all - doesn’t look like a dubbel) and a thin lasting head. Aroma is on the fruity side with a nice pungent sharp toasty malts, bready and syrupy sweet with a good Belgian character- phenolic and tropical fruity esters. Flavor is candi sugar sweet, nutty, light caramel, some toast, phenolic, grassy, and tropical mango hints. Fairly smooth with a nice sharp finish. Good stuff, but doesn’t even remind me of a Belgian dubbel.

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2009
On tap at Union Jack’s Victory Night for Philly beer week. Poured dark ruby body with amber highlights with a half inch of off-white head, a really beautiful beer. Aroma was dates, raisin, subtle candi sugar, citrus, slightly like port, caramel and toffee malt, with an obvious fruity ester yeast. Very reminiscent of their alt besides the predominant sweetness and yeast differential. Flavor was maple, licorice, honey, candi sugar, raisin, woody, but not distinct flavors but rather one continuous spectrum. Very nice. Palate was also full bodied, smooth, and highly satisfying for a non-belgian abbey beer. I was surprised by this excellent beer.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2009
pours a very nice amber-ruby color with a medium white head on it. lightly spiced aroma with some alcohol and fruit to it. flavor has spicy hops and some leather and mustiness...not all that great. mouthfeel is slightly creamy and the finish is very dry.

keepersj12 (3062) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2009
On tap at the brew pub. Pours nice. Not a lot of head or aroma. Flavor is rather bland. I prefer the Abbey 6 much more.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Draught at Victory: Faint aroma of malts, biscuit, and a hint of Belgian yeast. Poured deep amber/orange in color with a medium-sized, rocky, dense, off-white/tan head that lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of chocolate, malts, light Belgian yeast, slight spices, resin, and slight caramel. Medium body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Sticky, resinous finish.
