Evilman (210) - 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 TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!

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.

bonkiedeaap (724) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2016
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.

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.

cloudy brown colour, huge, medium dense yellowish-beige head; aroma of dried plum and figs, caramel some floral and herbal notes and roastedness; taste of roastedness, dried fruits, some caramel and herbal notes; if the taste was as good as the aroma, it would be a great dubbel
