Burnt caramel color, nice beige head. Caramel and alcohol aromas with pine notes when cold. Slightly oily, caramel and malt flavours.

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

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.

fraternie (820) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2001
Incredibly smooth. A little sour. Fruity/ carmel malt. Interesting and enoyable.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 25, 2001
Other than Stella, are the Belgians capable of making bad beer??? Another winner - high alcohol, very dark, bore some resemblance to a doppelbock, but spicier. Hints of caramel, heavy malt, but the finish was not as sticky as I expected (a la Het Kappitel).

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2000
A fairly rich, yeasty example. The kind of beer that will have some fairly devoted fans, and others will be ambivalent.

opiate (199) - Sandy, Utah, USA - DEC 16, 2000
I really, really, really liked this stuff. It’s much like a dopplebock. Dark, rich, and just oozes dried fruit and caramel in the aroma. A very rich, very strong, very good ale.
