330 ML Bottle-Poured a dark ruby red/brown w/almost no head. Had a little sediment in it. Rich, smoky, woodsy flavor of peat, dough, malt, rasians & dates. Somewhat sweet. Flavor definatly grows on you as you drink it. Somewhat wine like, somewhat like an amber. Very smooth. Good carbination & lacing w/a long finish.

Bottled. Wonderfully pungent aroma, faint head, cherry in both colour and taste with a tiny hint of a hoppy aftertaste.

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2006
A 33cl bottle from the Systembolget. A puff on gunsmke on opening, and a volcanic spotted tan head despite a slow pour that popped and crackled down to a thin, lasting cap above a ruby red and brown body. The aroma confused me - mushrooms and earth and paper mache. Expected some dark fruit and malt, but struggled to find it. It smelt old - a touch oxidized. This translated to the taste, which was a little thin, dry and a nice hoppy bitter finish. The mouthfeel was slightly electrically charged, like the sensation you get immediately after an electrical storm. There is some caramel in there, but not much, and a suggestion of strawberries.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Aroma of dates, sweet smelling but quite dry in flavor. Well balanced and nice, but nothing to rave about.

scanovajr (663) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - DEC 9, 2006

DuffMan (8801) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2006
Chestnut brown with a rocky towering beige head. Aromas of unspecified fruit and soft yest. A little figgy raisiny fruit and soft sweet malt. The mouthfeel is much softer after swirling the last of the bottle to stir up the yeast before finishing the pour. Still, I found it to be on the thin side. I think I prefer some of the other dubbels I’ve tried, but that goes against the general consensus here.

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Pours dark brown with a creamy, beige head. Aromas of grain and molasses with a hint of berries; no real hop bouquet. Fairly complex flavor that doesn’t really open up on the first few sips. Toasty malt flavor reminiscent of a doppelbock but not as sweet; a hint of plum or currant. Spice or rye flavor begins to appear as the glass warms. Medium bodied and not as heavy as I thought it would be. Fairly well balanced with a long, dry finish.

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Pours dark brown with a medium head. Aroma is a mouthwatering blend of bruit (berry) with a slight hint of spice. Flavor is delicious. Prune/raisin flavors mix perfectly with nuts and a slight bitterness.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 29, 2006
Bottle 49F Trappist. Superfruitty nose, like juicy fruit bubble gum. A nice light fruit touch maybe strawberries, light on the banana. Dark red color, with a light tan head, and of course great lacing. Light taste of plums, almonds, starts sweet, then becomes sour and still finishes lightly sweet. A lighter palate than I expected, I was thinking it would be a little more substantial. Kind of a watery mouthfeel, quite a bit lighter than I expected. Good brew, nothing magical or god like. But really not too bad, and quite drinkable.
