This Westmalle Dubbel is like the Chimay Bleu, but not that mouch flavour. Also taste of choclate, but more lighter choclate, feels like an typical Belgian beer...

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 28, 2006
aroma is malty, saltiness, possibly some sweet cherries. Pours a lovely ruby brown, cloudy with a full head. Smooth going down with some yeast mustiness. Dry finish, and some hops as well. Somehow I was expecting more. The overall flavour was somewhat muted and nothing really stands out.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2007 Aroma of dark dried fruits and sweet malt. Appearance is a dark brown, with a dense, swirling white head. Flavors are rich malts, fruity yeast and a mild spicy hop finish. Very well balanced overall, with just a touch of alcohol warmth to finish.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Sweet malty, fruity aroma... some hint of caramel, dates, raisins, dried cherries... some slight nuttiness and a hint of yeast. Huge bubbly light brown head, thick and very dense with tiny microscopic bubbles. Very dark brownish-reddish color. Rich and complex flavors of sweet malt, dried fruits, yeast, caramel... a hint of molasses. Very slight syrupy mouthfeel, not too much... the light carbonation makes for a slightly drier finish. Great brew, reasonably priced... very smooth and easy to drink despite the heaviness.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2006
Brown- redish hazy colour with a begie head. Aroma from sweet malt, plums and burnt sugar. The taste is complex with a pleasent biterness.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Pours dark amber brown w/ a full spritzy froth. Aromas of candy fruit and malt. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Complex flavors of dried stone fruit, brown sugar, fig, raisons, plums, and rock candy. Finishes w/ a nice bittering but remains fruity. Alcohol is noticeable. Overall: A very complex specimen worthy of any connoisseurs list.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2006
bottle. Aroma: Dried cherries, toffee, roasted malt, a little potpurri, and some noticeable alcohol. Appearance: A dark brown with red highlights. Head was light tan, creamy, and long lasting. Almost no lacing. Flavor: Lots of malt sweetness with notes of caramel, light chocolate, and raisins. Touches of clove. Alcohol was noticeable in the finish. Palate: Full bodied. Carbonation was high and a little prickly. Worked itself out after awhile, but distracting at first. Alcohol left some warming in back of mouth. Overall: When I first got this beer at the bar I was at, it was way too cold. Aroma and taste suffered. Once it warmed up, all the great malty/fruity flavors came out. After that it was terrific.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Pours a deep mahogany with a creamy head and tons of carbonation. It dissipates after a while. A mild spicy and sweet aroma. After the first sip, you can taste hops, fruit, with a nice malt balance. I like the complexity of this beer, it’s easily drinkable.

Svesse (6906) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2006
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 14 July) Colour is dark brown, with hints of ruby, and a frothy head. Nose is malty with butter-scotch, toffee, dark bread, caramel and marzipan. Taste is malty, a bit roasted, with dried fruit, figs, nuts (hazel nuts) and somewhat lactic. Well balanced sweetness and a touch of hops in the finish. Nice brew!

TonyBanannas (36) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle, poured a cloudy redish brown with a thin white head. I dont know if it was my sinuses, but I couldn’t get a great aroma out of this one. I’m sure thats why, because a few good sniffs and I really couldnt get a definition on the ale. I’ll tell you one thing though. It goes down easy, in two-three minutes I had finished a second. Flavored with wine, come citrus, just a touch of hops, and a little roasted malt. Finishes bitter like some of my favorite beers. A good brew, but nothing I could rave over.
