coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours very dark, slightly reddish brown with a big frothy head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is sweet malt, banana-y wheat. brown sugar/molasses, raisins and other fruit. Flavor is very rich -- everything thats in the aroma, plus caramel, more spiciness, and some toffee. The bitterness comes in at the end. Medium body with a bit of creaminess.

davidm (2079) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Tap. Extraordinary beer. Deep burnt aroma, with forest fruits. Dark brown colour, fully lasting head. Flavour is also long lasting, complex, with a right balance of sweet and bitter notes. Full and creamy body, and high gravity.

beer4eternity (226) - Tauranga, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 28, 2009
330ml bottle. Dark fruity (raisin, prune), banana, brown sugar/molasses, malt, chocolate aromas, though very little aroma at the serving temperature recommended on the bottle ƕ to 6 degrees Celsius). Cellar temperature 12 to 14 C) much better. Frothy large head rapidly diminishing, good lacing. Rich dark brown ruby hue. Medium to full body with smooth velvety mouth-feel. Mixture of flavours in there - chocolate (bitter and sweet) malt & caramel sweetness, spice. Nice beer but marginally preferred the Leffe blond

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with an off-white head that lasts and leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma isnt very strong but does contain brown sugar, sweet malt and dark chocolate. Flavour is fairly similar but the chocolate is more milky than cocoa and there is a bit more spice without the whole being too sweet. Overall not a good representation of a dubbel but a fine beer in itself and more than appealing to my palate.

Beuatiful aroma of malts, wheat, brown sugar. The appearanmce is ruby red/brown, tan head. The flavor is spicy, wheat, brown sugar. The finish is a bittering from the spicyness of the beer. Medium mouthfeel. Very good overall.

Had at the Hop Leaf in Chicago. Malty sweet and deliciously spicy! I think I still like the Blonde better, though.

elihapa (1552) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Tasted on tap, many times, most recently 8/15/09. Pours dark brown, semi-hazy and with a cream colored head. Aroma is nutty, with dried fruits and toffee. Flavor starts with milk chocolate and nuts, moves towards a minerally-sweet mid-palate, and a semi-sweet finish with some alcohol and general chalk peaking through. Especially on a big gulp. Palate is medium-thick and syrupy throughout, finishing rather long. Overall, I must say that this beer just doesnt come together for me. It is a touch thin, maybe a bit simplistic. And there is just something about the flavor that doesnt work.
