OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2002
Ruby red and cola clear colour with huge rocky caramel medium lasting head. Tropical fruits, caramel malt, some chocolate and spices and a faint tinge of alcohol. Medium, kinda oily looking but an almost delicate, clean, crisp mouth feel. Light bitter, stronger caramel sweet palate with faint mouth warming alcohol yet still retains a bright refreshing finish. Nice stuff - I’ll have some more of this one please.

dark red-brown colour,fine creamy head, vinegar, cherry and plum aroma, very smooth, slightly too much carbonation, notes of alcohol and apple, long dry bitter finish

Ernest (7214) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2002
Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium orange-brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (light bread, caramel), lightly yeasty (dough), with light notes of clove, orange peel, and toffee. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, creamy and syrupy mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Flavor is on the sweet/acidic side, and the aroma is somewhat light despite being pleasant. Very well-hidden alcohol and a nice mouthfeel, though.

A very nice thick brown ale. The caramel flavors really helped to put this one over for me. Another excellent Belgian

This brown dubbelale has a sweet palate, and strong robust taste.

Jake Barnes (456) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 15, 2001
I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this. Absolutely no head or carbonation. Caramel,yeast, sour flavors all going on at the same time. I think I may need to try it again just to get a handle on what was going on.
