Deep burgundy color with a big, fluffy head. Complex fruit aromas with a layered sweetness (honey, then caramel, then toffee) with a hint of licorice and chocolate. A big, rich, abbey-style ale that dries out nicely on the finish.

alteregoo (1822) - Kalisz, POLAND - APR 4, 2017
Puszysta, obfita piana, średnio trwała. Barwa miedziana, klarowna. Aromat karmelowo melasowy z całą masą przypraw, suszonych gruszek i rodzynek. W smaku dość słodki, głównie suszone owoce, karmel, melasa, miód, troszkę orzechów, rumu, skórki pomarańczy, pumpernikla, w przeciwieństwie zaś do większości intensywnych, ciemnych piw świątecznych przyprawy są tu delikatnym dodatkiem, uzupełnieniem w aftertejsie. Goryczka niska, herbaciano ziołowa. Wysycenie wysokie, drobniutkie, za wysokie, półpełne, lekko szorstkie w odbiorze.
Całkiem dobry Dubbel, na plus nie dominujący całości wpływ przypraw, aczkolwiek przeszkadza nieco musujące, szampańskie nagazowanie. Do Westmalle Dubbel jednak troszkę brakuje w mojej opinii...

Lore (2989) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 1, 2017
slightly opalescent mahogany-ruby colour, large, dense and stable beige head; aroma of dried sour cherry, dark chocolate, plum jam, caramel biscuit, hints of vanilla, licorice and slight nutmeg; taste of dark chocolate cake with burnt plum jam, bittersweet burnt sugar, licorice and minimal anise; excellent dubbel!

UPDATED: APR 1, 2017 Found at the neighborhood HEB, thank you very much. Tilted into my New Belgium tulip glass it shows a dark ruby red with a glorious long lasting off-white head. It is a nose of great promise, ripe fruit, vanilla and caramel. The taste is quite fine, I get plum, raisin, a slight sweetness and a lingering satisfying bitterness. Not heavy like other Belgians, I can appreciate it both ways, Good time.

mariuspoenari (3179) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2017
33cl bottle at home. Semi-hazy ruby pour wiht a tall tan head with good retention. Notes of caramel, toffee, light licorice, milk chocolate, tons of dried fruit, figs, overripe grapes. Very well balanced, sweet but surprisingly drinkable.

BlazerT (1332) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Bottle. Trappist glass. Brownish with light brown, tiny head. Poor head retention and lacing. Moderate to light heavy malty aroma, caramel, candy sugar, toffee, mild no to intense yeasty profile, slightly peachy. Taste is light heavy sweet, candy-like, honey, no really long. Medium body, watery to oily texture, average to lively carbonation, palate is nice and creamy. In overall not really complex, should be more sticky and malty, nicely drinkable. Overrated.

TeijoA (73) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2017
35,5 cl bottle, bottled 2/10/2016, BBE 11/2019. Color is dark ruby with a nicely solid off-white head. Nice aroma of malty sweetness, toffee, sweet bun, Christmas fruits, anise. Taste is similar. Anise seemed very powerful at first, not my favorite that one, but the other flavors start coming through. Gets better as it warms up.

From bottle, pours a dark cherry with tan head which is thick and foamy. Copious amounts of toffee, black cherry, roasted nuts and caramel on the nose. A viscous palate with cherry and malty flavors and dancing carbonation. Well made, just not something I would drink very often.

martjoobolut (5337) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle (from beergium). Pours dark amber with huge brownish beige head. Aroma is sweeet, malt, dark fruits, candy sugar. Flavor is sweet, dark fruits, spices, malt. Overall: not really complex, and i’m not sure why it’s 3rd rated abbey dubbel, but it is ok Belgian Strong Ale...

maekchu (4098) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 3, 2017
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake o Taniguchi). Nice dark roasty nose with brown sugar. Dark ruby/brown color, 1-2cm tan head. Sweetish initial, with dark fruit, caramel. Some licorice, dates, and heavy toffee. Mild alcohol presence. Medium body and a bit warming. Very pleasant dubbel.

Bomber bottle. This is a nearly perfect brew with incredible blends of tasty ingredients. Start here if you’re looking for a primer on Belgian dubbels.
