Half pint draft at Blind Tiger. Pours a deep hazy brown body with thin off white lacing. Tasted like your typical, traditional style abbey dubbel. Nothing to write home about.

Quevillon (2549) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2008
Bu sur place en fut (12oz seulement), le 26/9/08 (ma fête). Brune caramel brumeuse, un peu de collet. Arome de malte caramelisé aux pommes avec des notes d’épices sucrés. Goût sucré épicé très bien balancé, orge malté délicieuse et peu fruité, finission d’alcool réchaufant. Une double très solide et savoureuse, un plaisir pour les senses!

notalush (4999) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Tap at the brewpub - cloudy brown with a lasting, off-white lace - aroma of carmelized brown sugar, plum and other dark fruits - light mustiness and candi sugar - medium-sweet, with brown sugar, dates, raisins, a hint of rum and a light alcohol warmth - I really enjoyed this one.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 31, 2007
6 ounce draught sample at the Vermont Brewer’s Fest (July 2007). Hazy-dirty brown/mahogany with a bit of head....sweet, spicy, yeasty aroma, bananas and lots of caramel, a bit of cherry and a hint of smoke......lightly alcoholic/warming texture on the tongue, peppery, raisin-caramel dominates the flavor profile at the front, brown sugar taking over and gradually drying out....quite complex with notes of mint, tarragon and tart acidic blueberries showing up as I sip it, quite slowly. Very solid addition to an already stellar lineup.
