MERGED BLUBBERING !
Chestnut hues, and quite a clear brown. More head than the blonde and a smokey aroma. Sweet, uncomplicated taste but very pleasant indeed. Almost mushroomy taste that is far too drinkable for a dark/dubbel

quite good commercial dubbel, and quite cheap
birra d’abbazia dal dolce amaro ben bilanciato e armonioso, piacevole coldbrewky (1731) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Bottle at the local for lunch. Thanks Andre! A lovely Ruby with a wavy tan head. Rasins pears and cotton candy in the lively nose. Medium plus body undulates over tounge. Body warms and dark fruits emerge. a lovely sweet finish. I will have this with dinner next time. sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2009
clear, surprisingly light. cherry brown. no head. liquid hard candy. very sweet, nutty. better than those awful ones i had here last time (la trappe, though ironically enough i gave that dubbel a higher overall score) drseusszb200 (687) - Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2009
not much of a smell. poured dark reddish brown with a white head that lasted half the beer. taste is balanced between sweet and bitter.

(33 cl bottle) dark brown/reddish colour, slight malty nose, well balanced sweet/bitter notes, subdued but quite pleasant and drinkeable Headbanger (4021) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2009
11.2 oz bottle 5/3/09 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-Pours a dark brown with a nice big tan head. Aroma of malt and maybe some sweetness otherwise nothing. Taste of swetness followed by some amlt and raisin characteristics. This medium bodied brew has no Belgian characteristics instead of some sweetness. This is like some American malty product possibly a brown or amber. If its a diffferent take on a Dubbel it definitely fits that but nothing matches a true Dubbel. It still is quite drinkable.

Aroma has some currant, molasses and biscuit. Appearance was dark amber with a low carbonation creamy head. Flavor had mostly caramel and chocolate with sour apple vinegar and molasses. Finish was briefly lively with some creaminess. Underrated. VTHopHead (1513) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Draft - Pours a dark brown in color with a thick light tan head that lasted a while and produced some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty and sweet with plenty of dark fruit and caramel or brown sugar. Flavor is malty and very sweet with lots of dark fruit and brown sugar. Finish is cloyingly sweet and lingering. Much too sweet for me... zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 26, 2009
(bottle - 330 ml) Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is lightly fruity with some hints of raisins, bubblegum, malts and some candy sugar. Flavor is sweet and malty at the beginning with some bubblegum and candy hints at the middle. Finishes dry and crisp with some apple skin notes. Warming on the way down and tangy.
