In bottle at the Ely Winter Beer Festival, 2012. Pours a brown colour with a thick beige head. Aroma of chocolate, candy sugar, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with lingering caramel and chocolate. Moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a chewy mouth-feel. Nice.
Bottle from Beergium. Brown color, beige head. Bitter taste with nuts, chocolate, malts, earthy notes, a bit of ripe fruits, yeast and toffee. Bitter finish with nuts, chocolate, toffee, earthy notes, yeast and ripe fruits. Very nice dubbel. simontomlinson (329) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2017
Good head retention.
Pale brown - quite light for a Dubbel.
Sweet syrup tastes with malt & slightly roasted Evilman (236) - Taverny, FRANCE - APR 14, 2017
A step up compared to the blond one, deeper and way more interesting. Rather light for a dubbel, far from my favorite ones, but not a bad thing. Alcohol is well hidden, some caramel aroma and spices. Very pleasant, I still prefer the Prior and Abt ones but not to be overlooked. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW! kostasgiotis (124) - GREECE - DEC 7, 2016
Deep red body with a two finger tanned head. Doesn’t smell much, mainly caramel,earth notes.The body is light which is a surprise.Tastes caramel,spice and earth. Not a nice one YigSvartka (304) - Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 17, 2016
Opaque copper brown hue with mid sized beige head consisting of good retention. Blast. Unfortunately smells rather akin to stale cardboard. Vast breadth of body not unlike dough. Delectable taste which is bizarre given the terribly unimpressive aroma. Caramel, slight roast, dried fruit, fall spices and vanilla with a sweet/malty finish that coalesces with a wee bit of hop. Pleasant.

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel, Belgium. The beer is dark brown colored and has a large and stable cream colored head, with livingly CO2.
The aroma is malty and fruity, with notes of roasted malts, yeast, dark fruits, caramel and spices.
The taste is sweet and malty, with tones of caramel, dark fruits, raisins and the spices gives it a pleasant bitterness near the end.
The finish is a little alcohol, light bitter and dry.
Very nice dubbel. Peter_L (1246) - SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2016
Flaska @ Pressklubben. Mörk standardbelgare. God, balanserad, på gränsen till intetsägande. martin00sr (3999) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2016
Murky brownish amber, big and fluffy light beige head. Caramely aroma. Flavour has malt, caramel, notes of dried fruit, light spice and something sour. kapusil (1412) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 8, 2016
0.33l bottle. Very dark ruby body with a light brown foam. Aroma of reisins, toast, sour cherries and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, sour cherry, orange zest, toast, cloves and grassy hops. OK beer. minutemat (5396) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
330ml bottle from Verheyde, Watou. Pours deep dark brown with large off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, brown sugar. Taste is smooth, sweet, yeasty. Definitely a vibrant sweetness but tied in very well with good balance. Really liked this.
