davidoc (113) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2008 Poured medium amber with a small white head. Malty, fruity aroma and subtle fruit taste. Stronger than it tastes. A bit pricey, but cheaper than a flight to Belgium, and right up there in taste.

HogTownHarry (6563) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Poured hazy deep mahogany-copper with an average lasting foamy straw-coloured head. Sweet and spicy aroma, alcohol, apricot and and dusty dry butterscotch and light floral hops. Taste is mild, sweet, fruity, softly spicy, yeasty, a bit dry but sweet, the alcohol is sneaky, the finish is fast and wispy. Lightly sticky, slightly thin mouthfeel, not much carbonation. A pleasing attempt at BSA - a little sweet, needs to be livelier but strong and full of character.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with iwantalambic (thanks!). Bottled on date of 4/16/04. Poured a deep orange color with a small sized off white head. Lots of small floaters. Aromas of yeast, caramel, oak/wood, and nutty. Tastes of caramel, lighter yeast, toffee, and nuts. Very light alcohol finish.

Thanks to hopdog for breaking this open... Appears a dark amber with a small off white cap and small amounts of lacing around the glass. Smell is of caramel, nuts, wood, raisins, and plum. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with caramel being the standout of the bunch. Mouthfeel is smooth, medium bodied, slightly sweet, and hiding that 9% nicely.

wxman (1793) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Pours a cloudy pale brown, has a nice off white head with good lacing. Sweet maltly fruity aroma. Very sweet roasted malt flavor with hints of prunes and raisins. Mild hop bitterness as well. Some alcohol warmth after the swallow, but not overly assertive. Looks more like a dubbel than a triple, but it has the ABV of a triple. Very good effort.

From a twisted cap long neck brown bottle with a blurb about the dubbel on the front label and a bottled on date on the back label, 02/16/05. Made a very good appearance, poured a cloudy dark orange hued amber with a fluffy, foamy pale tannish head that settled into a thin, foamy, creamy-like lacing, small amount of sticking, good carbonation. Had a caramelize sugar, toffee, fruity and dry Belgian yeasty nose with whiffs of spicy rum-like alcohol. A crisp, creamy, carbonated smooth fullish bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Toffee and caramelized malts taste, plum fruity, yeasty, a good crispiness from the malts, a nice spicy alcohol warmth in the palate and a fruity and caramelized malty finish, with a yeasty and spicy alcohol warmth lingering in the palate. Tasty and balanced Dubbel from Goose Island, another quaffable beer from a consistently good brewer.

this was a pretty good beer. Had it at the LI beerfest. I wish I could have bought a bottle, the small taste was a real teaser.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2006
Bottled 2/16/05 Yeast-laden nose with a nice round oaky character; some sweet maple and just a touch of dried fruit. The first thing that hits the tongue is the carbonation - an acidity that gives the immediate impression this beer will make you pucker, but that quickly subsides and the warmth of the malt takes over. The carbonation may be a bit sharp due to its aging, but it has let the body really settle out nicely. The high ABV is not readily apparent behind the very present yeast and malt. Slightly chewy, very sticky. The aroma is perhaps a bit more intruiging than the flavor proves to be, but nonetheless this beer holds up very well.

Headbanger (3986) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2007 Draught Goose Island Wrigleyville-A hazy red with a constant head ring. Aroma of malt and yeast. A little sweet and it seems to cover up fruit tase. Overall a good tasting Belgium. 12oz bottled on 1/21/05-Body with a deep amber color and an off white head. Aroma of toffee, yeast, alcohol, and malt. Taste of alcohol, yeast, caramel, and toffee. I liked it better aged a bit. 7/4/7/4/15

Rating #200. Poured into a Goose Island goblet. Color is dark brown but translucent, cannot see through the beer. The aroma is Belgian sweet. The taste however is lighter than expected, thinner body. That belgian sweetness is less present. The aftertaste lingers for a while, again that sweet belgian-y aftertaste. A good stab at an abbey dubbel.
