Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to unclerudy. Pours a translucent dark brown with not much head. Aroma has lots of dark fruits and caramels. Lots of fig and raisins coming through. Taste has a dark sweetness with some Belgian candi sugar influence and a soft burn on the backend. Really a nice beer.

12oz bottle, brown sugar, dark fruits. Sweet. Not sure this is a Dubbel. Still not horrible, but nothing to write home about.

Fukito (1031) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 16, 2013
Murky, brown/ black color with a quickly disappearing tan/ beige head. Aroma is phenolic and somoe very slight burn notes. Flavor is phenolic/ anisee. Very similar to trois pistoles and the like. Palate is quite smooth and easy drinking. Warming, great but not exceptional.

michaelinwa (656) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle from trade with umich03jm. Dark brown color, low head, and interesting aroma of sweet malt, banana, even ripe mellon. Taste is very different, and I would not have even thought "Belgian ale" without first knowing. Taste is moderately sweet malt with flavors of plum, banana, raising and a little spice. Finishes subtly with all these flavors. Very interesting brew, and one more reason I think this brewer is one of the most interesting brewers in the world.

solidfunk (8312) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Great Belgian dubbel. Aroma of clove and banana, some floral hops. Pours reddish brown with some lacing ad head. Taste bitter and sweet in good balance. Some booze in finish as well. This one really grows on me. Tap at brewpub.

Pretty generic amrican dubbel. Sweet, yeast-driven. Not complex but rather messy.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Draft. Aroma has notes of dark dried fruits, tobacco, black licorice, banana and apples. Very dark brown hue with a small off-white head that left very little lace. Flavor is very very sweet and cloying. Palate is very full bodied and oily with average carbonation. Overall a very sweet Dubbel and a little too hot.
