RickTheRick (948) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
Une mousse beige moyennement gnreuse dessinant une fine dentelle se dresse sur un liquide brun aux reflets acajou. Des armes de sucre brun et de malt lgrement rti me viennent en tte lorsque je plonge mon nez dans le verre. Ces mmes impressions se retrouvent en bouche, combines des traces de fruits confits. Jaurais aim quelle soit un peu plus costaude et liquoreuse, avec un peu plus de corps, mais nempche quelle est bien reprsentative du style.

Earthy banana, plum. Roasted malt, nutty, raisin, tart, dry sour finish. Interesting take on a Belgian brew, the alcohol gets a bit erosive on the palate though.

glennmastrange (2745) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Tap. Moderate roasted fo the malt, light herbs for the hops, light to moderate yeast note of barnyard, with wood, faint spice and dried fruit. Head is large, rocky, light tan with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Colo is dark red/brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes slightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick, with a soft carbonation and has a dry finish. Nothing bowls you over in the Abbey Dubbel, and it may not be so true to style, but its got a hint of wildness in it and is real easy drinking.

rodenbach99 (4385) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
Dguste en ft sur place. Un calice avec un liquide la robe brune qui ne mousse pas. Le nez est agrable tout en malt avec du chocolat. Cest sucr. La bouche est sucre, chocolate. Cette bire a peu de caractre, elle nest pas assez pice mon got. Le caractre de la levure est peu prsent. Elle manque un peu dattnuation.

SlovakSniper (5315) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012
Un verre Montral. Version 6.8%. Un liquide la robe brune acajou. Un anneau de mousse et sa dentelle. Au nez, des malts caramliss qui rencontrent des raisins et des parfums de gomme-balloune. Au got, un malt qui nest jamais sucr et qui dveloppe des saveurs rties-torrfies qui sont assez sches (un mlange de caf et de poudre de cacao). Les petits fruits de la vigne sont discrets et permettent une timide affirmation dherbes amres. En bouche, le liquide a un corps de moyenne densit avec un bon ptillement et une texture huileuse. La finale se fait sur des notes trs peu asschantes et sur des notes lgrement aqueuses.

Quevillon (2969) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2009
Drank at the brewpub in the evening No Habs No, December 5, 2009. cask version (12 oz). Hazy caramel brown, small head. Aroma of spicy and juicy tart fruit. Taste of dry herbes, some notes of fruit malty, bitter but watery. Good but Ill try the original!

asheft (3029) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2009
[on tap at brewpub] Cherry, almost medicinal but not quite, aroma with a touch of toffee. Almost clear chestnut with a thin, white ring. Sweet, buttery pumpkin flavour with notes of cinnamon and coriander. Light to moderate bitterness and moderate to medium carbonation. Medium body, bitterness lingers a tad in the finish.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pour is dark brown with considerable amber peeking through, minimal head but one thats very crisp. The mouthfeel is initially lively but fades somewhat quickly. Crisp fruit notes mingle with a solid (and not overly sweet malt presence). Not the most lively body, and this tends to make some of flavors less full than they might be otherwise. However, its a competent rendition of the style.

MartinT (9592) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Bubblegum phenols weave through this slick Dubbels caramel sweetness, as herbal and earthy hops flicker in the background.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the hazy brown.
-The mouthfeel is well fed and remains drinkable at all times.
-I seem to be getting faint chocolate notes at times.
-Its hard to compare to authentic Dubbels because most are bottle-conditioned, but Id say this is pretty spot on.

On tap at the brewpub.
