datrael (446) - Krakw, POLAND - FEB 16, 2017
W aromacie nuty chlebowe, fenole, żelazo. W wyglądzie miedź wpadająca w brąz, przyzwoita brązowa piana. W smaku fenole, nieco słodkich nut, zboża, pieczywo, trochę karmelu. Wysokie wysycenie, dość wodniste. Oglnie dość przeciętny dubbel, bez wyrazu.

kevinator (2171) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Traditional Dubbel that is a good benchmark. Great dark bready aroma. Deep brown with a frothy head. Flavors were grainy and roasty with a slight caramel finish. Full bodied.

pattysykes (19) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2017
Poured from 33cl bottle. Medium-dark brown with pillowy beige head that dissipates to a thin creamy cover (leaving a lot of lacing). Burnt caramel, bread, faint cherry notes. Taste is similar, more of the cherry and sweet malty character comes out. Medium body. Quite an enjoyable beer, not as strong in alcohol taste as you might expect, but leaves a warmish aftertaste.

Manslow (1567) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 4, 2017
Butelka 330ml. Kolor bursztynowy, klarowny, piana solidna zostawia na szkle ładny ślad. Aromat karmelu i suszonych śliwek. W smaku to samo z alkoholem dobrze skrytym. Pełne ciało, duże nagazowanie, goryczka średnia..Raczej wytrawne.

chinchill (4829) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2016
{From 2011 notes). 11.2 oz distinctive and heavy bottle served in pint glass. Best by date 1 full year in the future (3/2012). Different labeling: now sold as a brune 8 rather than a dubbel 8. Still described on the reverse as a Belgian dubbel. light pour produced nearly 4 cm of head, causing the need for a 2nd pour. Moderately thick and quite sticky light tan head has excellent retention and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass all the way down. Slightly hazy, dark mahogany color. The subtle spicy aroma is not the strong point of this beer. The flavor is more bold, rich and complex than what I could pick up from the scent. Aroma does convey higher ABV and ample malt. Back to that complex flavor. There is a lot going on here, with a terrific dynamic interplay of well-balanced flavor components from the sweet spicy start through to the toasted malt, spice, earthiness and mild bitterness of the finish. M - medium/full body, creamy with a nice dryness in the finish. An excellent Belgian dubbel; I hope to try it head to head with my old favorite Belgian dubbel, Westmalle, and the very similar (I think) St. Martin.

kaserov (595) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 28, 2016
Color marrn oscuro, con reflejos rojizos, opaco, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de tres dedos de grosor (muy buena retencin). Carbonatacin a tope. Textura acuosa (esperaba algo ms de cuerpo, s). Aroma frutal, acaramelado, licoroso; me recuerda a un pastel de frutas al que se le ha aadido alcohol. Sabor a caramelo, fruta (pasas o higos o ciruelas, o quiz los tres), algo de alcohol, final muy mnimamente amargo. A medida que va atemperando aparece un regusto a caf en el paladar entre trago y trago. Una Dubbel de mucho nivel.
