Brewed in the style of a Belgian monestary, it has a distinct aroma of plum and pears. The flavor has the sweetness of dark Belgian candy sugar paired with nuances of fruit and spice. A dense, rocky head sits atop this mahogany colored ale.

Murky brown-red with a quickly dissapating luight tan head. Sweet alcohol-sugar aroma. Really lacks complexity in the aroma. The flavor is not much better, sweet and boring. Bummer.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2006
Beer #5 RBSG 06. Medium amber, little head. Interesting aroma, dark fruits, Syrah wine, and alcohol present. Flavor was of light molasses, dark fruits, and smooth, clean caramel. Very nice!

JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - APR 21, 2006
Dark brown amber, no head. Nose of soy sauce, mixed with dark chocolate. Sweet taste, with a limited fruitiness and flavours of valeric acid, cat’s pee! Some caramel. Creamy MF, well bodied, slick. Some problems with the valeric acid, but overall not bad.

(Draught) Pours a deep amber body with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma of caramel, alcohol, and spices. Flavor of scotch, malt, and a hint of fruit in the finish.

TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 7, 2005
On tap at the North Wales location. Pours a slightly hazy mahogany brown (red when held to the light) with a small off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of dark fruits, Belgian spices and some citrus. Flavor was a light roastiness, candied sugars, slightly tart and lightly spicy. Had this back to back with the Tripel and the Tripel won out.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Draught in North Wales. Clear copper body with a small, frothy, off-white head. Nose has pleasant floral and banana esters with some caramelization, suggestions of sweet yams, and a gentle note of smoke. Medium sweet flavor of caramel, a touch of light roast, bubble gum, and woody hop flavor and bitterness. Somewhat sticky palate. A tasty, stylish American dubbel.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Tap in North Wales. Poured a medium brown color body with an off-white head. Very yeasty aroma with some sweet dark fruits. Flavors are sweetish yeast and light carmel with some raisins and figs in the finish. Alcohol just present enogh to take away from what could be a great Dubbel.

weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Appears a mahogany color with a small off white head and scattered lacing. Smell is of raisins, prunes, and bready yeast. Taste is of the same sweet aromas with a pleasantness that seems to be a nice take on a Belgian Dubbel. Mouthfeel is dry with some sweet caramel upfront with the nice yeast.

3.4
JFGrind (2071) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2005
On tap @ Media location. Copper colored dubbel, smokey aroma, candi sugar sweetness and the good all alcohol twang.

3.7
Shag (3045) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2005
A reddish brown appearance. The flavor was nutty with some citrus and sour cherries. A bit on the sweet side with molasses present in the aftertaste. A pretty good effort
