No aroma, no taste to talk about. Looking at the high ratings this beer has, its just an unlucky bottle I guess.

hauxe (477) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2016
Pours dark brown from the bottle and leaves an attractive finger thick head that lingers amidst the sticky lacing. Aroma is caramel, a bit bready, maybe some dark fruits at a subtle level but fruitiness is not the main driver here. Taste is toffee, butterscotch, plum set atop a sweet lightly sugary undertone. Finish has a hint of spice and a light alcoholic warmth. All in all however the alcohol remains very much disguised. Body is relatively light but maintains a rich and creamy character. Adequate carbonation. A good Dubbel.

Tjomleif (163) - NORWAY - OCT 13, 2016
375ml. bottle. Decent beer. Lightly hoppy with a nice balance of malt. An excellent choice when you want to enjoy a beer without getting too heavy.

jsporrer (803) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Pours a medium dark brown with a big foamy tan head. Light spice aroma with a little carbonation. Crisp and fresh light spicy malt flavor. Fairly refreshing. Not quite as good as some other Dubbels Ive had but still enjoyable.

Bottle - dark brown, decent off white head. Good aroma - roast coffee and vanilla. Good mouthfeel, coffee, chocolate tasting. Good aftertaste - good beer.
