kimjongill (207) - - NOV 16, 2012
From slightly aged bottle. Brownish ruby appearance. Slight but pleasant aromas. Nothing strong or unpleasant in the taste, but it’s not particularly strong either. I wouldn’t call this a "strong" belgian so much as a typical but solid entry into the belgian category. Taste it if you have the rare opportunity. Thanks for the trade, Doug.

fkoolen (1401) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Bottle at Wagon Leo, Bastogne. Served in a stone bowl. Slightly hazy chestnut brown, foamy beige head. Typical Dubbel notes, quite pleasant and balanced: bready, brown sugar, some dried fruit, dry, light-medium bitterness in the finish. Medium-good body, medium carbonation.

nathanvc (796) - Brugge, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2017
Bottle bought from a vendor at a small Ostend funfair, poured into a nice, big, plastic cup, tasted on the beach. Pours hazy brown with a big, tan head. The aroma contains nuts, caramel, some dark fruits, hops & herbs, malt and iron. It tastes light to medium sweet and light roasted bitter; never fully coming to life, with metallic hints lingering throughout. Medium body, rather watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Not an exciting Dubbel.

Sweet toasted aroma. Metallic flavour. Some sweets. Head disappears quickly. Drunk from a porcelain helmet.

ruigo (3080) - PORTUGAL - FEB 14, 2017
33cl bottle. Clear brown with big off-white head. Malt, caramel and bread. Drinkable.

Rubin77 (2741) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 8, 2016
F: big, off-white, pretty stable. C: dark red to dark brown, almost clear. A: weak, malt, caramel, bread, hint of milk chocolate, grassy, hint of yeast. T: malt, caramel, dark bread, hint of coffee, grassy, cardboard, quite watery, lemon, hint of plums, medium body, low to medium carbonation, it´s controversial beer there are good tones mixed with bad, so for me light above average, 0,33l bottle from Spar supermarket in Oostende.

Kr1zz (402) - BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle 33cl bought at De Bierboom in Brugge last year. Pours dark brown with a big beige head leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Nose: chocolate, roasted malts, dried fruit, caramel. Taste: medium carbonation. Little bit of the same: chocolate, some dried fruits, roasted malts and caramel. In the end bitter hints.

3.4
Benzai (16918) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2015
Sampled @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2015 as "Airborne Christmas (Lamborelle) 8%". -- Clear amber brown color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly sweetish, some caramel but decently balanced actually. Decent body and carbonation. Not bad.

2.8
7stern (662) - Bromma, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2015
Clear, dark copper colour with dense head. Syrup aroma with some sourness. Roasted malt taste. Rather sweet, light body.

3.1
strap (981) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2015
Served in a replica WWII helmet. Pours light brown. Smooth drinking with a little brown sugar. Decent Dubbel. Not the best, but a novelty brew

3.4
kraddel (9329) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2015
Pours unclear , amber/brown/very light milkchocolate colored . Rather small white head that fades fast . Smell is sweet , some caramel . Taste is grainy-bitter, sweetness ( caramel aspects ) . Very thin mouthfeel ( of you look from the top of the beer to the side it even seems to be rather clear ) , so I’m guessing ( ! ) a watered down intense brew . Which would be a shame, cause I feel like this ’pure’ versio would have been better . And if I am wrong, well , I’d still love for it to have more body and intensity . Good carbonation . Some yeast fruityness in the back .
