Draft at North Wales location. Copper pour with fruit, malt, toffee aroma and taste. Some berries and cognac came out at the finish. Somewhat light on the palate for an abbey dubbel, but not bad. The Americans are learning how to make Belgian styles, young Skywalker. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2004
On tap @ the North Wales location. Poured a medium mahogany color with a very small off white head. Aromas and tastes of dark fruits, caramel and other fruits. Lightly sweet. Body was on the thin side. Out of the Tripel vs. Dubbel I had tonight, the Tripel was a lot better than the Dubbel. egajdzis (6730) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2004
North Wales... Poured a red, orange, brownish color with a pinkish white head, that left very spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherry, citrus, wood, banana, clove, and yeast. Taste of sweet roasted cherries, yeast and light alcohol. This finished rather tame however. desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Pours a dark mahogany with no head. Aroma is slightly vinous and sweet. Flavor of plum, blackberry, caramel with a bit of hoppiness. Finishes dry and somewhat smoky. Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Poured deep ruby red, with a thin off-white head. Aroma was sweet and fruity. Plum, fig, apple, and caramel on the tongue. This is a pretty good dubbel.

Dark amber in color, almost ruby red, very little head, good malty profile, hint of chocolate or cocoa, not a bad dubbel

At the Newark, Delaware location: Dark red with a strong sweet scent. Very sweet and sugary, almost tea-flavored malt. Not my bag, but maybe if you like Belgians ...
