Rötlichbraunes Bier mit ordentlicher beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, Karamell, reife Früchte, leicht alkoholisch. Geschmack nach reifen Obst, Karamell, hefig. Lubiere (13911) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
A hazed dark brown amber ale with a thick frothy lacing mocha head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light fruity notes, plums, alcohol warmth, candy sugar, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with fruity notes, light roasted coffee, dark fruits, molasses, candy sugar, nice, but nothing special. hopdog (12528) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle. Poured a brown color with a small sized off white head.Caramel, honey and some yeast. Sammy (12204) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
Yeasty aroma. Light brown and lacy. A little astringent and dry. SO-so drinkability.Thanks Josh L. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
My Bottom Line :
czar (9075) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
Highly mineral and yeasty, this Dubbel is still able to bring forth raisin-y hints and clove-like spiciness to spruce up an otherwise unpolished flavor profile.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A very cloudy purplish brown is topped by a slice of foam.
-There was way too much yeast in this bottle. Or, at the very least, flocculation was poor and obfuscated the flavor profile.
-Honey is suggested in the finish, but it may not be because of the actual honey that was added. Residual sugars are also higher than average for the style.
-Whatever the problem was, this bottle lacked the polish of a good Belgian Dubbel.
gusher - again, 3 out of 3 brews from them. pours hazy, almost cloudy light brown-golden orange with a towering off-white head, good retention. metallic, co2, spices, some caramel and dark fruits, spicy hops, some sweetness - a tad too much. bubbly - not aggressive, medium body, decent grassy-peppery-spicy finish. meh. solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Strong taste of maple honey here. Syrupy texture. Pours maroon without head or lacing. Light carbonation, sweet finish. A little messy. Booze quite prominent. Bottle from Delires du Terroir. TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013

Depanneur Peluso, Montreal 50cl ($5): Pours mostly clear brown with a beige head. Aroma is dark fruit, sugar, and a healthy dosing of yeast. Taste is not very complex or large. Fortunately this is no too sweet. Strange slightly sour taste in there. I think the aroma is fine, but the taste could have used some work. Boutip (6375) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light amber color ale with a large foamy head with medium retention and some light lacing. Aroma of honey and residual sugar is not as dominant as I would have expected and there is a lack of ester that I would have expected in this beer. Taste is also dominated by light caramelized malt with clear notes of honey and light residual sugar with cereal notes also apparent. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Definitely sub-par compare to other offering form this brewery and this confirms that I prefer dubbel with candi sugar and more dominant esters.
