Nice dark brown with solid head and good lacing; a pretty beer. Robust malt flavors and aromas support this lightly fruited entry. The intriguing chocolate, coffee malts are buoyed by dried fruits and juicy berry flavors. The aroma and taste show promise, but prove to be a little thin, as a more complex and full flavored depth would make this brew a great one. Overall not bad. ubamartian (155) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2007
1 Pint Bottle. Deep brown coloring with tan foam that reduces quickly. Sweet smell of malt and sugars with a bit of fruit. Smooth flavor with a spicy finish. A very good dubbel. mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2007
75cL bottle, from old notes. Deep mahogany color with bubbly tan foam, horrible retention and lacing. Aroma is very faintly dark malts and some toffee. Flavor is a little lacking, a little bit of dark malts and some sugary sweetness. Very thin for the style. Rotorhead87 (119) - Temple, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2007
750ml Bottle - Dark ruby-brown color with a good sized off-white head that quickly dissipates. Somewhat sweet smell, mostly of malts and sugars with some fruity notes. A nice caramel malt flavor with a good spicy kick to the finish. Soft, smooth mouth feel.
A very good, but not quite excellent, dubbel. Definitely work a try. stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - SEP 23, 2007
Bottle, 33cl. Lightbrown foamy head. The beer is clear and nutbrown. Aroma is sweet with notes of figs, fruits, sweetness and caramel. Very gentle flavor, with caramel and some fruits. Moderate sweetness. Carbonation is low, which gives a good mouthfeel. Overall a nice belgian dubbel.

Bottle sampled with stegosaurus. Pours a dark brown with a two finger beigh head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, spices, and raisins. Flavor is moderate sweet with caramel malts, light yeast, figs, and some fruit notes with a clean and smooth finish RSRIZZO (2020) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2007
Aroma is a rich sweet roasted malt scent. Color is a hazy brown with just a hint of orange. Carbonation is good but seems a bit fizzy with a loose head that dissipates quickly. Taste is fizzy and bitter. Starting with a medium body it goes down with soo much fizz that it is almost hard to swallow. Finish comes on with a mild sweet malt flavor, just a faint hint hops flavor and a good bitterness. Its just not as bold as a Belgium Dubbel Ale should be and way to fizzy.

Bottle. Clear brown colour with large frothy white mostly lasting head. Fruity aroma. Sweet spicy flavor. Oily palate. greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 8, 2007
A lovely belgian dubbel. Pours a muddy brown with a few flakes of yeast floating around despite a careful pour. That’s OK though, I need more vitamin B. A deep snort reveals fruity malty aromas dominant, a hint of solventlike alcohol, and some vanilla oakiness and a whiff of dark molasses also. The flavour is the same only more so. There’s a light sourness underlying also, which helps offset what could be an overly sweet beer otherwise. The mouthfeel is let down a little by what I consider overcarbonation. Others may like this though, it’s just not for me. The finish is short, with a sweetness that lingers on the front of the tongue. kp (10881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007
