UPDATED: APR 13, 2004 bottled: pours nice hazy mahogany with a tan rocky head that eventually disipated. nice earth fruit aromas. first drink was more of a fruit flavor to me, bananas and some spices, as the beer warmed a bit i got more of a toasted malted crunch coming out...quite complex and very good. havent tried the rest of the westmalles but im going to the store, cuzz theyre damn good, if i must say so myself!

SpringsLicker (3121) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2004
This Dubbel poured a clear brown body with a huge off white head that was very creamy and long lasting with excellent Belgian Lace on the glass. The aroma is lightly malty with alcohol and a breadiness in the background. Slightly sweet with a short, acidic finish. A good Dubbel, but I couldn't rate it any higher than this.

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2008 Bottle – Poured a red/brown quite opaque brew with a huge head with standard retention. Great carbonation with strong body. Aroma is very spicy with no alcohol noticeable. Taste is great with the usual Belgian style mix of malts and hops with some added roastiness to that one. The spice mix is a bit stronger then expected but overall very enjoyable. Overall, this is a good beer but I was expecting something greater from this well known Trappist. Re-rate 2008: Creamy texture, no alcohol, bubblegum-like taste. Very well balance from a very fresh bottle. Wow

PrimeMinister (138) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2004
Very opaque dark-red color. Pours a nice head that doesn't vanish fast. Rich Malt taste. There is a glimpse of chocolate, and an unusual but subtle bit of burned/roasted taste. Overall a good Dubbel.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Bottle pours a beautiful dark ruby black with a perfect head and very good lace. The aroma is slightly yeasty and roasty, perhaps somewhat lacking. The flavor is sweet, roasted, chocolate, somewhat hop like, and just very well balanced. It seems better as it warms. Perhaps more complex Ale fruit notes show through and seems a bit yeastier. The palate is medium rich and slightly more carbonated than I expected. Overall, not a bad Dubbel.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 26, 2004
This beer pours a dark brown color with a nice fluffy head and leaves some lacing on the sides of the glass. The aroma was yeasty with fruits and caramel. The flavor was quite sweet and filled with caramel tones. I had higher expectations for this. It's a great beer, but it can't hold ground against others in the same category.

presario (4596) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 17, 2004
Dirty brown with light head. Aroma of alcohol, fruit and molases. Thin body. Effervescent. Malty and dry. Foamy in the mouth with dry bitter chocolate and a light fruit finish.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2004
Pours a medium to light brown with a big thick head. Aromas include some dark fruits, malt and a mild spiciness. The carbonation is crisp. Breadlike yeasts, malt, some hops and quite dry in the finish. Overall the brew is good. Damn good
