skibumphishead (259) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 7, 2007
big corked bottle... this double is a little lighter and more carbonated than most. The flavors are all there... nutty, cloves, raisins... not bad, but the body should be much heavier. This went well with some pesto chicken and veggie pizza.

Stew41 (2007) - Phuket, THAILAND - JAN 5, 2007
Had mixed luck with the dubbels on this trip but this baby shaped up ok. Dark vienna lager style in colour with a very thin head. Attractive nose and taste of earthy / fruity malts, just a fraction cooked, but carries across the tongue quite tightly. Medium strength finish. Medium weight style with plenty of friendly character.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2006
330 mL bottle from LCBO gift pack. Translucent cinnamon brown with very little head - not very appealing-looking. Aroma of brown sugar, spice, and perhaps a little alcohol. Flavour is more restrained than expected, although its nicely balanced and has an appealing "feel" to it. Some malty sweetness, but theres also a tart fruitiness, and a short hoppy finish. Much more subtle than their Blonde and Trippel.

shrubber85 (11271) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Bottle. Strong molasses and brown sugar aroma. Cloudy dark brown color with moderate tan head. Sharp acidic taste up front with a light brown sugar and sour malt flavor. Nice beer but a bit on the rough side.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2006
33cl bottle - pours reddish brown with a big, mountainous off-white head. Aroma of spiced dark fruit, cloves, some yeast. Quite nice. Unfortunately, theres not as much going on in the flavour - some sour apples, a bit tart, and fairly sweet. Some sharpness. Mouthfeel is nice, effervescent and frothy. Fairly uncomplex, especially put next to Westmalle Dubbel or Chimay, etc. Whats there is nice, but needs more body as its a bit thin. Reminscent of some english pale ales. Good stuff, but far from the Holy Grail.

TampaBeer (257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Nice murky brown potent looking appearance. Aroma is nice, but light. An average belgian abbey - which means it is still tasty and nice.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
33 cl bottle. Light brown clear colour with little but nice head. Aroma of malt and fruit, also some roastedness. Very unspecial dubbel flavour, very classic little sweet with some roastedness and some fruity too.

Tranquillity (2223) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2006
Thick beige head which stays all the way through the drinking process. Dark red/brown colour. Very harmonic bitterness, medium finish.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2006
330 ml bottle. Brownish ruby red colour with a thick creamy off-white head that clings to the glass. Yeasty aroma with sharp hop character. Quite a sharp aroma. Dish water. Highly carbonated. Leaves a lot of carbonation in the mouth. Quite dry flavours, only slightly sweet with some sweet syrup in the background. Subtle watery finish with surprisingly little sweetness and hoppiness.

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Pours dark brown with a thick, persistent beige head. Big aromas of clove and apricot, with a hint of hops. Rather flat, one-dimensional flavor of amber malt. More like a pale ale as it lacks the complexity typical of a dubbel. Full bodied, weak, metallic finish.
