MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2017
My Bottom Line:
This sweetish Dubbel aligns raisins and caramel under coriander and licorice for a rich, desserty example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam quickly recedes to a ring atop the deep brown haze.
-Mouthfeel is sugary and prickly.
-Flavor profile also evokes vanilla and sasparilla.
-Drinkability is lower than the usual Dubbels.
-Alcohol is well hidden.

piscator34 (2493) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle. Reddish brown in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of dried pit fruit, rose wine, black licorice, and sweet malts. Flavors are of sweet dark caramel malts, light anise-like spice, and cooked apple. Lighter bodied than expected, with a bit of a chalky note on the back end to balance out the sweet and the fruity notes. Decent for the style, but lacking in intensity.

ljthiessen (1289) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a reddish hue, tan head. Aroma is dark fruits, Belgian yeast and spices, licorice, citrus, anise, plum, raisin, lots going on. Taste is a little sweet up front, the same dark fruit and spices, very flavourful but lighter body than expected for the ABV. Tastes more like a Belgian strong dark ale than a dubbel, but tasty.

northropfrye (3481) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 16, 2017
Bottle poured into Orval glass. Brown body, off-white head, not much lacing. Sweet aroma of plums, yeast, dried fruit and a hint of glue. Taste is sweet cola, and fruit, with a hint of anise, but pretty subdued. Palate could be more lively. Over all this was okay, but I felt its over-rated unfortunately.

Ne comprends jamais la svrit snobinarde qui peut faire paratre un chef-doeuvre pour une petite bire de rien du tout, et me demande si les gens qui critique prenne le prix en compte pour relativiser la note. Ici, avec cette superbe Dubbel de 750ml pour 6 petit dollars, nous avons droit a une matrise du style sans prtention et toute en finesse, une double dabbaye trs lgre pour sa teneur en alcool et facile a boire, qui na quasiment pas damertume et est coiff dune belle mousse et dune carbonation moyenne mais prsente (dans le bon verre). La palette se dvoile en couches, plus on en bois plus on dcouvre des notes de dattes, pruneau, cassonade, cacao, cajou, licorice, vanille, caramelle cossais, rhum brun, cerise noir (et non dr peper!!) etc. Belgh Brasseur est un matre du style belge et sa matrise atteint ici son paroxysme, a mon humble avis il sagit de la meilleur Abbaye Brune a petit prix et je remercie Jean-Louis Marcoux de ne pas tomb dans le march de luxe qui pte de la broue plus haut que leur cul! Aimer la bire cest aimer en boire encore et encore et cest dautant plus apprcier a un prix honnte! Celle ci est de loin ma prfre de sa famille dexcellente bires. Vive la Belgique au Qubec!

hellonearth (150) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2016
Brun/noir avec un petit collet de mousse crmeuse. Armes poivres de rglisse noire et de lger caramel. Corps semi-puissant de dattes, mlasse et pices. Un peu surette, plutt sucre. Des gots puissants, mais rien dexcessif. Intressante, mais un peu lassante. Et une finale marque par le sucre et une impression alcoolise un peu chaude en gorge.

Arcanor (408) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2016
330ml bottle no date. Pour dark brown with some red notes. Tall dense off white foam that vanish fast and stay as a ring. Aroma of raisin juice and notes of toffee. Taste is on the malt side, Belgian yeast. A classic Dubbel but not as enjoyable as others. Medium carbonation and sweetness for the style. Long malty finish with some alcohol warmness. LAmoszuz Double version. No foam at all. Aroma is more on the malt side. Taste is more metallic and watery, no fun here. Palate is light, low carbonation near flat. Abrupt finish. 5-2-4-2-8 2.1

guil0000 (431) - New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Nose of prunes, dates, grapes, caramel malts, other dark fruits, molasses and spices. Taste is pretty sweet. Spicy warm finish. A bit sticky mouth feel. Very nice pleasant surprise here.

Bierdimpfe (633) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 Opaque dark brown, almost black color with a copper hue, and strong glass clinging activity. Light brown 4 fingers island head explosion, extra frothy with sparks, lasts around 15-20 minutes, with strong leggings. Aromas of ginger, floral, molassy, and dark fruits. Flavors of syrupy molasses, dark fruits, ester fruits, spicy peppercorn, herbal and floral spices. Ginger bread feel. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Strong and long finish, ending with an overly spicy feel, thick syrupy sugary feel, leathery and molassy tongue coat. Overall average quality craft. OK flavors that are unbalanced and way too spicy and sugary. Too intense and doesnt feel very fresh. Still good accessibility with low perception of alcohol. Originally LAmoszus Double with a score of 4.2 (8+4+8+5+17) Almost opaque dark brown, almost black color with a copper hue, and powerful activity. Explosive extra frothy light brown 4 finger sparkly island head, lasting around 15 to 20 minutes, with some very good legs. Flavors of ester fruits including dark berries and apples, grapes, plums, cherries, toffee, molasses, yeasty caramel, floral and herbal spices. Highly sugary and yeasty with a nice sharpness. Smooth almost creamy full body with a sharp perfectly balanced amount of carbonation. Medium strength finish with some ginger spices, a thick sugary molassy feel, and faint herbal bitterness. Overall an excellent quality craft. Great complex flavors, very fruity and pleasant. Well intensified with a strong warming feel yet low perception of alcohol. Very good freshness for a dubbel. Excellent appetizer and highly accessible.
