Pours dark with tan head. Dark sugars and chocolate dominate the nose. Beer is thin w/ not much on the palate outside of a faint sweetness that can not be identified much more than that. Alcohol is surprisingly not present, but seems fitting with this beer as very little is present anyway. Good effort & glad to have a chance to try, but definitely not a replacement for a traditional Dubbel. jb43 (1695) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2011

mahogany with a bubbly tan head; thin body and high carbonation.Syzzer (736) - Oregon, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Aroma: sour grain, alcohol, and chocolate flavoring.
Taste: sour grain, fruity prune esters, alcohol.
it looks nice, but frankly, it’s undrinkable.
In the classic dubbel fashion, a hint of dark-sugar and toffee flavor; and a traditional Belgian yeast bouquet. OG: 1.064; IBU: 24; ABV: 7.0%

500mL bottle. Poured deep mahogany into goblet with champagne like head diminishing to nothingness. Aromas of nuts, yeast and caramel. Body on the thin side. Tastes not well balanced, not sure if it is the rice or buckwheat, but just tasted off to me. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Bottle. Pours reddish black with lacy beige head. The aroma is polyurethane and yogurt-covered raisins. The flavor is much the same, strong polyurethane, some raisin, a little bit of vanilla. This is pretty hard to drink. wlajwl (7201) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Grape/dark fruit in the aroma, the appearance is dark amber and shows the secondary fermentation in the head. The taste is malty and shows again a flavor leaning towards grapes/dark fruit. The body, though is relatively thin. A good but not great due to the body Belgian ale. obguthr (6824) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Bottle from Linville’s in Poquoson VA: Neat toffee and date nose that slighty approaches butterscotch, kind of like rum. Ruby brown, thick tan head., good lacing. Sharply tart. Damn, is this a Flemish Red? Nope, the bottle says Dubbel., but I digress. Flavor is plum and cherries, but mostly plum. Alcohol is insistent given its actual content. There is also a faint but noticeable bleach like flavor. Body is weak as was the aroma. Kudos and bonus points for doing neat styles gluten free. Unfortunately, Dubbels just aren’t the same, or as good, with a gluten free grain bill. If my diet required a gluten free diet, I would drink this often, though.

Pouring at Get Real New York. Deep brown pour. The aroma is quite sweet and plummy. Lots of plums and a bit of sweet rummy flavour. There’s a bit of light molasses. The yeast has a lovely bit of estery character as well. Pretty solid actually.
