Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2007
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 (2034) - 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.

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.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 15, 2007
750ml bottle at Boulee on Newbury Street. I have to disclose that I’m partial to Belgians, but I really enjoyed this beer. Perfect brown color, slightly opaque with a long-lasting cream-colored head. Wonderful aroma - fruity and nutmeg. And that awesome malty taste that a Belgian should have - backed with some spicy and citrus flavors. Loved it. Can’t believe I haven’t written this one up yet.
