Tap at local restaurant at philly airport. Great red brown color and nose is brown sugar and dark fruit. Malty and rich but not overly complex. Pretty good and great in a tall glass. Boom! Jrwhitney6 (516) - - AUG 25, 2015
Beer of month club. Pours a brown with reddish hue into a snifter. Nose of brown sugar and spice. Taste is dark fruit, pumpkin spice, and malt. Easy to drink, pretty good.

Ft, Lauderdale, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Murky dark brown pour, slight, but persistent eggshell colored head, light lacing. Aroma has some brief chocolate accents, some earthy peat-like notes. Chewy flavor with some light chocolate notes, some molasses sweetness, a hint of dates, touch of brown sugar in the back end. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Pretty decent. fitwitchik (433) - Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle purchased on a brewery run thru Maryland and poured into a snifter reddish dark brown with minimal head.
Aroma is malty with dark fruits.
Flavor is mild for a dubbel. Quite Smooth. CObiased (562) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2015
12oz bottle - pours a dark amber/brown with a slight head that coats the glass. The aroma is mostly sweet prune like malt but also a touch of rich biscuit and herbal notes. A mouthful is slightly thin yet layered with rich ripe fruit malts coupled with a tiny hint of pumpernickel.

Bier riecht relativ malzbetont mit einem Hauch von Klebstoff. Der Geschmack ist relativ seicht: malzig mit etwas Asche im Hintergrund. gueuze (1008) - - JUN 10, 2015
Dunkelrot, klar. Im Geruch leichte Anteile von Klebstoff. Im Geschmack dann weniger. Leicht restsüß, insgesamt rund. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2015
Dark brown body, medium sized light tan head, and soapy lacing. Rich caramel. dark fruits, some milk chocolate, and light earth. Medium to full bodied, gentle carbonation, moderate sweetness throughout. retinadoc (243) - - MAR 23, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2016 Bottle. Reserved aroma. Medium carbonation. Rich, dark brown color. Slightly sweet. Lots of raisin and almond flavor. Makes me think I’m drinking a carbonated wine. Sweet malt with almost no hop flavors. Very interesting beer. The antithesis of a hoppy IPA. trapped (3787) - New York, TURKEY - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark amber with small light beige foamy head that disappeared immediately, slight roasted malt aroma, medium carbonation, mellow roasted malt taste, abrupt finish. Lacks the kick of an abbey dubbel!
