TheFisherKing (5) - Bangalore, - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle at Singapore Beerfest. Red-brown, foamier head than expected, solid carbonation. Aroma: Earth, Bread, Fruit. Taste notes: Dry fruits, malt, molasses, chocolate. Expected a thick, oily mouthfeel but was surprisingly light. Quite strong but eminently drinkable. Still prefer the Blonde though (as all gentlemen do)

tfredvik (1849) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2017
Clear, very deep copper body with a rather large, beige, long-lived head that sticks to the glass. Quite strong aroma of brown sugar, roasted malt, dark caramel and Belgian yeast. Strong flavour of roasted malt, burnt sugar, dark caramel, brown sugar, Belgian yeast and alcohol. Mid-bodied with a moderate carbonation. Not bad!
[25 cl from tap @ Acadmie de la bire, Paris]

Pours a dark black with a thin head. The aroma is dark fruits, raisens, plums, and cane sugar. The flavor is more of the same with alcohol being quite noticeable.

m.mahu (168) - Iasi, ROMANIA - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with visible ruby accents. Big, white, frothy foam with big bubbles. Aroma of caramelized sugar, dark sour cherries, some herbs and fruit. Its kind of boozy, although with only 8% ABV. Lively carbonation, very good aftertaste. Very nice.

datrael (376) - 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 (2025) - 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 (18) - 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.
