Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2005
33 cl bottle. Brown colour with a very nice creamy head. Great aroma spice and some roastedness. Nice complex flavour of spice, ends some bitter. But overall the beer becomes very lightful.

Lubiere (13081) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2005
Red burgundy ale with a thin 0ff-white head. Sweet caramel and vinous aroma, with prunish notes. In mouth, sweetish malts with good hops, and spicey orange peels. Medium bodied. Nice molasse develops at warming. Bottle at lAutre Oeil.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2005
I had the "quad" of these fellows while in belgiun, thanks to a russian fellow who was staying in holland. I thought that an excellent beer and this is too. Aroma is great, one of the better dubbel/brunes kickin about, dark fruits, red wine characters, yeast and goodness. Taste maybe not quite as full, but then its only 6.3%. fruityness is held though though not as sweet as i may have expected or wanted even, dry finish, unusual for the style and aroma. Still a great beer and wouldnt complain about getting a few more.

Realy dark brown double. Taste of burned sugar and fruits. Lacks some spices.

Boutip (6026) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2005
Bottle (at room temp): Poured a cloudy deep brown color ale with a super huge head with perfect retention. Aroma of caramel malt with distinctive Belgian yeast. Taste is a well balance mix between sweetness, strong malt with a nice touch of caramel and some subtle sourness with light funky yeast. Body is a bit thin for the style but overall this is a very nice dubbel.

blankboy (7359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2005 Rerate: Bottle at Pub Italia in Ottawa. Pours a dark ruby-brown with a huge light-brown head. Aroma of malt, yeast, chocolate, dark fruit, spices and sugar. Flavour follows the aroma but is a little over-carbonated. I liked it more than last time but its still dissapointing.
------- /> Original score: 2.9 -- bottle at Ciros. Pours a dark brown, almost black, with an average diminishing tan head. Aroma was hard to place for me, some sweet malt, dried fruit, yeast and more. The flavour was a let down, the aroma smelt like a Dubbel but it didnt taste like one and it was also too mild. There was sweet malt, spices, fruit and a weird sour-like taste. I did not care for the aftertaste. Its a decent enough beer but its a little dull and nothing special.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2005
Bottle shared with GregClow at Ciros. Nice spicy and pepper aroma with a yeast quality to it as well. Dark brown in the glass, thick frothy brown head - a nice looking and smelling beer. I mention that because the taste is a let down. Youre promised complexity and flavour but get a thinner than expected bland taste. It was a little bottle like stale as well. Taste was kind of fruity and slightly sweet, but it does not mix at all with the aroma or appearance in my mind. Quite thin. An interesting contrasting beer that disappointed.

GregClow (3255) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle at Ciros - shared with tupalev. Dark ruby-brown with a small tan head. Aroma of dark dried fruit (figs, prunes), malt, yeast and cocoa. Thin body. Flavour is pleasant but uninspired, with notes of brown sugar, sweet fruit and malt, and some bitter yeast in the dry finish. OK, but not a shining example of the style.

vanvenlo (1788) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2005
17 June 2005 - (Brasserie Lefeb) - Big fruit and complex hop spirit aroma. Cloudy dark brown colour, wide sheet lacing and creamy head. Malty fruit and hop explosion of flavours, but lacks complexity (neither subtle or earthy). Some metallic finish with a thick mouthfeel.
