Bottle courtesy of beerandblues2, thanks! Murky brown color, large full beige head. Aroma of sour toe jam and citrus. Taste is sour, buttery, soapy. Not sure about this one. Leighton (21853) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2015

750mL bottle, pours a chestnut amber brown with a big beige head. Aroma of toasted chestnuts, spices, herbal notes, and some subtle dark fruits. Flavour of herbs, various spices, some slight fruity sweetness and toasted nuts. Odd funk to this one, not exactly reminiscent of a dubbel. Semi-complex, but odd spices / herbs in here. Decent. bhensonb (15498) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 6, 2011
750 c&c from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy ruddy copper with a 4 finger creamy beige head. All I can get for aroma is a bit of banana - too much foam. Full bodied. Frothy carb. There’s banana, cinnamon, anise and some gritty roast malt. It’s almost earthy when the other flavors depart. It’s just a wee bit on the sweet side. But there’s so much other flavor, and enough bitterness, that the malt is not overstated. A really good ale. djd07 (15293) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2011
On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a very dark brown with a medium creamy beige head. The aroma is brown sugar and yeast. Medium mouthfeel with a clove and anise flavor with a lingering dry finish. A good dubbel from Boulevard.

Flavors of carmel, coriander, fruittiness, cinnamon and light brown sugar with a crisp lingering cinnamon finish. Actually kinda wierd for a Dubbel.

Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with a large frothy light brown head that was fully lasting and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy malt, complex spice and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Full balanced bittersweet flavor with the same full finish with a very small alcohol tone. Good well balanced brew.
