Pours dark brown with a massive tan head that doesnít last long. There is a skunky dark malt aroma and an even skunkier sour malt flavor. This doesnít taste like any other dubbel I have consumed, but I guess it is a reasonable alternative for those who require gluten-free beer.

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. Thereís a bit of light molasses. The yeast has a lovely bit of estery character as well. Pretty solid actually. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Bottle. Mahogony beer with a big tan head. Red wine, caramel, dark fruit aroma. Berry fruit, caramel flavor with light yeast. Medium-light body. Needs malt. Lingering sweet fruitiness that turns a bit sacharine. douglas88 (9057) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 4, 2009
500 ml bottle from the Bayou. Pours a wonderful picture; a deep ruby hue, very dark with a large light brown head. The aroma though was initially off-putting; it reminded me of rubber cement, or some odd oily and chemical like notes. The flavor was similar; a hot mess of glue and alcohol. But somehow, this beer wasnít so bad. Some fruity notes, sorghum (which produces much of the glue-like flavor). Not bad, weird and not my thing though.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Courtesy of Degarth. Pours deep clear garnet with thin mocha head. The aroma is pungent with bold dark fruity esters, some chemical alcohol notes, licorice and musty dewy fruitiness. The taste is as bold and sweet as the aroma with dark sugar coated fruitiness then becoming somewhat like red wine and tannin dryness. I also get a sugar porridge type sensation thatís mild and muted. Body seems really thin considering the level of sweetness in this beer.

scared, maybe.. i bought this 8 months ago and have been dreading this since i had the Quest.. . Big meaty salty sherry like aromas, not a good start, maybe some very faint chocolate.. . low head on the pour, then to just a bubbling of head .. . tastes like night train, but thicker and fizzier in the mouth!! .. fuckin gross shit! .. . cola, kool-aid grape, and night train flavours .. . you need either a bite plate, a wad of leather and a lighter or a piece of cheese to cover the flavour just to get through this... i hate this beer, and i hate you... even for gluten free this is a mess.. i am depressed now, i have a headache now, all my senses have been damaged!! ... .. this is worse than tori spellings acting, but her ass is nice...and this beer doesnít have an ass, ..another knock!! jredmond (8204) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Sampled with Linh at Ginger man in NYC, from bottle. Pours a dark cola body with thin foamy light brown head resembling soda. Aroma is somewhat bizarre with strange sweet notes. Mouthfeel is incredibly thin with awful notes of sweet nutty malts and alcohol. PorterPounder (7894) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 500 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a pilllowy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma has an odd meaty character to it with hints of chocolate. Flavor has some light coffee notes, a hint of molasses, some off-putting medicinal notes - due to the lack of gluten Iím sure. Thick enough mouthfeel. Not the most unflavorful thing I have ever tasted and could stomach this if I was allergic to gluten motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 14, 2007

Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a chestnut color with a large dark brown head. The flavor was roasty malts and a strange mix of root beer and Dr. Pepper. The flavor was root beer and Dr. Pepper and a hint of coffee. Very odd.
