Dark brown hue. Pours with a light foamy head, the nose is spicy, fruity, malty of apples and cinnamon, gingerbread, prunes, bitter chocolate and cookie. The beer is rich medium-bodied with fruity flavors of dry fruits, raisins, figs, has good malty caracter of chocolate with a touch of porto in a dry finish.

turbothy (1084) - Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2012 Quite the disappointment! (But still a decent beer, mind you.) Pours a beautiful black brown with beige head, but doesn’t deliver in taste and smoothness. May have been served too cold - will have to rerate. 399 other ratebeerians can’t be wrong :) Re-rate more than 7 years later ... a very good beer; raisin and toffee and malt and other goodness. Excellent balance, smooth mouthfeel. MOAR!

Reddish hue with yeast chunks and tan foam head. Aroma of bread, yeast, pear, prune. Flavors affirm the aroma with a bit of sherry in the finish. Some star anise also. Nice and dry and a bit tart compared to some other Dubbel’s I’ve tried. Very elegant.

Poured reddish brown. Off white head big foamy and inviting. Enticing aroma of Nuts and malts some roasting to add to the party. The first taste was fizzy with carbonation, dancing on my tongue. A sour taste lingered. As the glass empties, I see good lacing tracing down to the ale. Nice. This is smooth and creamy as it warms, with some tartness. the hoops sneaking and lay around, waiting to kick in as the ale leaves a smile on my face. Time well spent with this, can’t wait to try the triple.

This one is all on the outside....absolutely beautiful beer with nice lacing from its creamy long lasting head. A pleasant nutty and some dark fruit aroma. Oh with such enticement I was disappointed when I finally tasted the brew. It has to warm some before I got the sweet malty flavors and a littly hoppy kick with a sour finish Improves as it warms.

bluevegie (3052) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2004
This one went down a treat, deep ruby red body with a large tan coloured head, not a strong aroma attached to this at first but it gathers strength as it warms - malt, broth and rich fruit. The taste doesn’t jump out at you but it is very smooth and medium in body, alcohol is pleasant, texture is a little syrupy with all the characters in the aroma presenting themselves well in the taste. Cheers.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours a deep ruby red with a dense off-white head. Strong fruity smell, like red wine. Hoppy, strong flavor, sort of like blackberries. Tart. Overall, pretty good, but very strong.

Color brown much dark one. Cremamy foam of optimal persistence. Much dense one and with a strong and sturdy body. Bitter with a fruit aroma and alcohol.
