suurjuust (3899) - ESTONIA - DEC 11, 2015
Hazy reddish brown beer, medium off-white head. Nose is slightly sour, malty, caramel, berry and fruit notes, sugar, something creamy. Flavor is sugars, caramel, fruity notes, slightly herbal. Finishes with mild bitterness, more caramel, berries. Lingering bitter notes, mild spicy citurs and caramel. Very drinkable, but also the mouthfeel is on the thin side.
Earlier Rating: 4/3/2012 Total Score: 3.5
Cloudy light brown, lasting head. Aromas of dried fruit, yeast, some malt and faint alcohol. The taste is swett, malty, but not overpoweringly so. Some dried prunes and warming alcohol in the finish. Easy to drink.

Draught. Pours a murky brown with a fading off white head. Aroma of dried fruits, dark fruits, berries, blackcurrants. Taste is of forest fruits, caramel, earthy, some spice. Light oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation.

Holmen2 (4394) - NORWAY - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 31.03.13. Unclear brown. White head. Aroma of currants, chocolate malt and orange marmalade. Hops and toffee in taste that opens up more and more. Bitter chocolate and orange marmalade in aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel. High drinkability.

TorbenJensen (1599) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2015
Beautiful renewable foam with a lively aroma of hops and spices. The flavor is hoppy, slightly sweet and with an aftertaste persistent pleasant and round. I think alcohol taste is in a perfect relief to the beer’s other flavors.

suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Not sure I would call this a dubbel. It is a little too sweet and syrupy. Dry though.

Prolitariat777 (102) - St george, Utah, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Caramel and spice with a dirt kind of aroma. Taste banana and tart with some raisin and wine vinegar. Not too bad I appreciate the style but wouldn’t drink a bunch. Be sure to enjoy the Bruins before you try.

Hoppy_Luke (2144) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 29, 2015
Dubbel, czyli to, co Belgowie robią świetnie. Brązowy kolor, spora, średnio- i grubopęcherzykowa piana. Piana szybko opadła... Aromat rodzynek, trochę czekolady i wina. W smaku nuty winne, ciemnych owoców, nieco karmelu. Delikatna goryczka, średnie wysycenie. Bardzo grzeczny, stonowany dubbel!

ruigo (3080) - PORTUGAL - JUL 29, 2015
33cl bottle. Hazy dark brown colour with a nice off-white head. Caramel, malt, fruity and light spicy aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is complex but somehow balanced and with some tartness. Overall, a very interesting beer.
