SinH4 (4407) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2017
Tap. Hazy brown color with creamy tan head. Aroma is malty. Taste is malty, pumpernickel. Silky mouthfeel. Nice Dubbel I guess, but its not my style.

ACHops (1548) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2017
On tap @ Chucks 85th. Pours hazy light amber brown with very thin white head. Aroma is thin brown sugar, oaty malt. Taste is clean, toasted caramel malt; light Belgian yeast on the back, clean lightly boozy on the finish. Nice, simple, pretty restrained in all regards for the style.

TheAlum (7132) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Corvallis, OR). Pours a deeper copper brownish hue, some amber deeper glow on the edges through a decent hazed body. Frothy offwhite head is a fuller filmy layer overall, frothy and nice thicker layer retains and laces nicely. Aromas are a touch of sweetness, caramel and biscuit meet subtle Belgian yeast, mellow candi sugar and subtle fruit. Gentle spiciness, a darker touch of dried fruit, plum and earth. Initial is medium bodied, a touch of stickiness, carmelized malts, subtle candi sugar and gentle fruity ester. Dark fruit of plum, subtle black cherry pulp and earthy malts. A bit of spiciness, dry and fuzzy Belgian yeast meet some subtle toast, carmelized jabs and mellow estery fruit. Candi sugars, subtle caramel, a dry and yeasty backend with some gentle bitterness, toast and lingering subtle dark fruit. Finish is a touch of residual sugar hanging on with gentle dark fruit skin, mellow yeastiness and lingering candi sugar. Never sweet, instead this one handles its task well. A bigger darker Belgian that goes down easy enough for its size. Not bad. Faint medicinal jab at times but a pretty pour, nice nose and good enough balance despite its ABV.

Theydon_Bois (18694) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Keg at the taproom, Corvalis, 10/11/14. Clear amber with a decent light beige covering. Nose is Belgian yeast notes, caramel, spice, dark fruit rinds, dates. Taste comprises toffee, spice, dates, sticky fruit rinds, toasted brown sugars. Medium body, fine carbonation, sweet licks in the close but well tempered with bitter notes and doesnt get too sweet or overbearing. Ok for style.

Sarlacc83 (2197) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 23, 2014
On tap at the brewery. A: Dark, cloudy brown, firm white head, lacing. N: Raisin, prune, plum, toffee, clove, toast, butterscotch, more dark fruit. T: Sweet, not really bitter in any appreciable way. M: Medium body, hidden alcohol, prickly carbonation. O: I dont appreciate too many American made dubbels because I think theyre always missing the meal in a glass profile. I think this one stands up quite nicely, however.
