Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Its a nice brown color and a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, sweetness and spice (is it anise?), caramel and candy sugar. I find the same impressions in the flavour, which might sound as if its complex, but I find it rather thin bodied and that the sweetness is to dominant. The finish is rather dry. 1524

Fukito (1057) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 31, 2007
Tap at La Mayor Cervezas, march 07. Shinny copper color and an almst chantilly cream light beige head. Aroma is peaches, fruity. Tastes of caramel, dried fruits and a nice nutty ending, with a slight toasty touch. MF is medium, very creamy, velvety, just a bit flat at the end. Nice, warming dubbel that could go the extra mile with a touch of singularity.

hapjydeuce (999) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 26, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2008 Super frothy, nearly too frothy of a head, off white color. Translucent amber color, with fruity aromas including raisin with caramel and spice. Flavor dissipates too quickly, no lingering, with an almost a metallic taste throughout. Not good. Harsh and stingy palate. I wont buy this one again.

eaglefan538 (3042) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Pours an amber color with a very nice initial head, solid lacing, nice appearance. The aroma was strong caramel with light brown sugar notes, not a good start. The flavor was strong nasty caramel, light bread, and nasty european pale lager flavors with some yeastiness, light fruitiness with increasing temperatures. Very unimpressive outside of appearance, a little sticky in mouthfeel.

harrisoni (17995) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2007
33cl bottle from Noel Cuveliers, Abele. I drank this in a SAS Radisson hotel room at Stansted Airport. Russet colour with thick huge beige head, that keeps growing lick the pudding Woody Allen makes in Sleeper. Some malt on the aroma. Very basic, simple, not that interesting. Bit of sweetness. Some tingle on finish. Some candy sugar. Fine if dull. ABV was 6.8%

Chocolatey brown colour with rich roasted malt aroma. Bittersweet roasted taste with flavour of malt and spices. Quite high carbonation gets the flavours working around the mouth.
