Manneken-Penn is a 7.5% Belgo-American Dubbel whose name and label art were inspired by Philadelphia’s famed William Penn statue above City Hall, and Brussels’ landmark Manneken Pis sculpture of a playful naked boy – ahem – relieving himself. Manneken-Penn was made with oats, molasses and a combination of American and European hops. It is imported for PBW by Shelton Brothers and will be available both on draft and in 11.2 oz bottles.

tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Draft at Memphis Taproom. Pours a hazy reddish brown with tan head and fantastic lace. Notes of caramel, molasses, candi sugar, licorice. Medium body. Complex, slightly oily, a little hot.

Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2017
A hazed dark reddish copper ale with a thick frothy lacing mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light treacle, dark fruits, light coffee, nice and smooth. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with dark fruits, maple, subtle resinous hops, light mineral notes, very nice and solid after 3 years.

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle. Poured a brown color with an off white head. Caramel, dark fruits / cherries, and lighter chocolate. Had a lighter tart finish that worked.

tightslice (1435) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle from Betramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is a pine, sweet bark. Taste is bitter tree sap and medicine. Not lacking in personality but certainly has zero charm.

egajdzis (6730) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Murky brown color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, spices, dark fruits, light roast, faint alcohol. Taste of roast, spices, some cocoa, strong bitterness, dry finish, came off acrid.

60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Hazel brown color from 11.2 oz bottle at The Beer Shoppe Malvern. Aroma of hazelnut, old house, nuts, must, chocolate and boozy Belgian malts. Taste is a half chocolate muffin and Belgian waffle combination dripped in oak tree sap and booze.

abcfan (928) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Pours cloudy brown/red. Minimal aroma of caramel. Nice body, fairly slick. Biting hop finish.

kraddel (8878) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle thnx to Sebastian ( Brocante ) . Pours darker and unclear amber . Good white head . Smell is sweet, amber malts . Some copper . Taste is sweet, bit bitter , some herbal notes . Some earth-like maltyness . Carbo is just perfect , and the mouthfeel is significantly more thick than other de la senne beers .

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2014
bottle, drank with the Philly crew when they were in Brussels to brew this beer, great time. amber brown pour, medium bodied. dubbel notes, raisins, light chocolate, some dark fruits, I gathered a wisp of smokiness in this too. decent

bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle. Amber-brown beer with a big light tan head. Malt and light yeast aroma. Malt and cocoa flavor with light yeast and light spice. Medium bodied. Malt and light yeast lingers with light cocoa and light backing hops.

changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Dark reddish-brown pour with a nice khaki frothy head on top. Good lacing throughout the grass. Candied fruit of plum, dates, raisins, and maybe even cranberry picked up quickly in the scent, followed by yeast, caramel, and light toast. Smooth, velvety body, with a yeast character, raisin bread, candi sugar, toast, and spicy fruity notes. Malty sweetness upfront turns a touch bitter and dry in the finish. Warming but not alcoholic but at the same time substantial. I like how the Belgian yeast comes out in the flavor and there seems to be the right amount of spicy/bitterness contrasting with the sweetness, for a Dubbel. This is a good beer.
