Draught @ some shithole in San Antonio - Pours a thick dk and clear amber with a medium sized beighe head...aroma is kinda thin, sticky toffee and raisin...flavour is similar, smooth and creamy malt, light grain, plenty of fruit, kinda weak on the end...

Manslow (1274) - 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 (4512) - 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 (362) - 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.

Myonlyvice (207) - DENMARK - DEC 23, 2016

RaduPopovici (20) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - DEC 15, 2016
Nice ruby-brown color. Head is moderate, light-tan in color. Aroma is really nice and complex. Lots of dark fruits (raisins, black cherries, dried dates and figs), caramel, some winey and acid hints, some bitter, pine resin, dark bread and spices hints as well. Taste is complex and surprising, somehow different than most standard Trappist and abbey Belgian dubbels. Bitter-sweet, very fruity with interesting dark chocolate and even roasted coffee hints. Also some spices and a little alcohol. Moderate carbonation and a long aftertaste, dry with bitter, spruce, chocolate, coffee, mineral hints. This is a very nice beer, well balanced, with an interesting chocolate and coffee twist. I just love it.

Gehbe (305) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - DEC 11, 2016
Deep amber-brown with a big beige head and nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, dried apricots, raisins, spice, zest. Tastes medium sweet with carbonation sourness backing up the sweetness and a hint of bitterness on finish. High carbonation, medium body, rather alcoholic finish. Not bad, but too much alcoholic heat on the palate.
