Headbanger (3986) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2011
750ml bottle 9/17/11 (Davidsons Liquor)-56 in Snifter-Pours a dark ruby red with a big off white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, sour, roasted malt, and caramel. Taste of yeast, malt, and sour. This medium bodied brew is not what I was expecting. A little sour for a Dubbel but still tasty.

notalush (5818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Turbid reddish pour - pretty fizzy, but doesnt kick up too much of a head - aroma has some odd meaty/smoky phenols, yeasty/doughy character, very mild esters - flavor is slightly nutty, with quite a bit of the same smoke/meatiness from the nose - light acidity - nothing all that dubbelish about it, but I guess it isnt terrible.

Pours hazy reddish with lacing white head, bottle thanks to Brandon. Aroma has notes of some slight caramel, spice, some sour grain, touch of biscuit. Taste is an interesting combination of spice, nuts, some slight caramel, toffee, some slight earth notes, finishing bitter and slightly dry. Not bad.

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), with notes of gum, alcohol, and lemon juice. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Not much going on in the aroma, but its ok. Kinda sour and overly sweet in the mouth. Overall average.

RSRIZZO (1977) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2011
750ml bottle, courtesy of and shared with BeerandBlues2. Color is a hazy amber with very good carbonation and a thick rocky head. Aroma is a sweet caramel scent. It has a bold medium body that gives a crisp mouth feel. Flavor of malt, caramel and dried fruits, then a mild bitterness. Overall its a very good brew.

drjay44 (3591) - Salida, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2011
750 ml. bottle. Pours a fluffy ivory head, long duration, attractive lacing, over a very slightly hazy, amber (SRM 8) body.....nose is light caramel/toffee, bits of fig, raisin, plum, brown sugar.....taste is light dried fruits, raisin, fig, toffee/caramel, finishing dry, slightly bitter, but with lingering malt tones....mouth feel medium (a bit light), carbonation low. This is a fairly typical Dubbel. It is less complex than many, but has all the right qualia, BJCP 7/3/13/4/7

bleeng (1669) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2011
750 bottle purchase from brewery. Very carbonated hazy brown with a huge white head. Nose is sugar candi, some maltiness and sweetness. Taste is very sweet, a bit a caramel, some spiciness, lots of carbonation. Not real subtle as I think a dubbel should be. Not bad but this a bottle to share during a tasting.

onceblind (8687) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Very light amber, with a big fluffy head. Smelled like fresh morning dew, with light cocoa notes. Taste profile hits fresh, with light brown malt, caramel, and tart fruity yeast tones. Light and refreshing, but flavorful; like an assertive dunkel. Pretty eccentric.
