My bottle (341ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o Viper666. Pours a murky dark ruby-brown with a large mostly-lasting creamy tan head -- looks pretty good. Nice aroma of yeast, some alcohol, caramel malt, brown sugar, fruit, herbal hops and more. Sweet, yeasty, fruity flavour along with alcohol and hops -- a nice bitterness to go along with your typical Dubbel flavour. Good body. I really like this.

Bottle (341ml). Shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Deep clear ruby with a very large, long-lasting straw-coloured foamy head. Solid roast caramel malt with pear and peach sweetness, lovely yeast and green herbal bitterness in behind. Taste follows, wow that’s grassy-bitter, which really balances the sweetness and the building alcohol presence - quite a lot going on with fruity roast malt and the pungent yeast - an interesting take on the style. Thick, mild carbonation, quite pungent yet sweet on the palate, long bitter linger - trés bien!! Diogène (1208) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle. Dark red orange with a huge foamy mocha head with great retention . Great caramel and fruits aroma with candy, some spices and apples. Flavor is caramel, brown sugar, apple pie and some hops. Very good.

Acheté au grand-duc en format de 341ml brassin numero 1 dégusté avec viak dans un verre de fin du monde. Apparence brune ambré avec une bonne mousse.

341ml bottle from Grand Duc. Brassin 1. Poured brown reddish with a medium brown foamy lacing head. Aroma is fruity yeast, sweet fruits. Awesome aroma. A bit spicy also. Some alcohol also. Mouthfeel is quite warm. Taste is quite spicy, sweet (dark fruits), some bitterness. A bit metallic on the tongue. not bad but maybe a bit off balanced. Some foam stayed untill the end. Got better in the end, boosted overall from 12 to 14. Rating #106 Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2009
Bottle thanks to Daknole. Deep red-brown hazy with brown head. Very sweet, sugary aroma. Loads of candi sugar, apples. Lots of apples, like apple pie. Smooth, clean, good mouthfeel. The flavors are still all about the apples. A little simplistically sweet but I liked it. Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2009
Light brown, hazy. Slightly plummy, bubblegummy aroma with hints of brown sugar. Fairly thin, but with some smokey notes. Vague plum and a fairly sketchy alcohol finish. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2009
Glouglouburp again on the nice Canadian beer!! Nice brown pour wtih a light tan head. Aroma is full of caramel, fruit, yeast and some raisins. Flavor is sweet and fruity with smoe nice background hops. Some graham cracker notes and a hint of tartness rounded this out well. Very good.
