Caramel. fruit...fig, raisin,date maybe...Good. at 7 bucks. A steal actually. Super for a Trappist style Dubbel from the good ole USA. Nice pour and head and color. a little metallic on the nose but I drank it from a Burgundy glass. Recommended.

Bill Becker (1164) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 16, 2017
From Oct 2005 Poured into the glass a very nice dark amber with a good sized head that didn't stick around very long. What was left was a fine lacing around the glass. The smell is quite inviting with fruity tones mixed with a sweet malty aroma and a bit of alcohol. The taste was less complex than I thought it would be with a good dose of plum notes and some malt but not much else. Still, all in all, I liked it and would drink it again.

Zlotta (3722) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2017
0.355 l bottle from 'Beergium', 2016 vintage. Clear, very dark red with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, moderately yeasty-spicy and sligthly fruity aroma of caramel, plums, raisins, licorice root and coriander. Quite sweet, malty, rather yeasty-spicy and a bit fruity taste of caramel, coriander, licorice root, some chocolate and a touch of dark fruit, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, quite yeasty, rather spicy and minimally roasty finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and rather effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Spice-forward, saturating Dubbel for the colder days.

Cloudy, reddish brown pour. Sour, plum aroma. Lively and sparkling palate. Likely my least favorite of Ommegang's great lineup.

DonGregorio (506) - POLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Bottle. Unclear copper, light brown beer with average tan head. Aroma: caramel, cherry, plum, dried fruit, notes of molasses. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter, caramel, cherry, raisin, plum, dried fruit, light spice. Plum and cherry in the finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Good, tasty dubbel.

ALLOVATE (3054) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2017
2014 vintage.
Into an Ommegang chalice at cellar temperature. A dull chestnut in the glass misted by the yeast. Head is short-lived and fades to just a ring of beige on the meniscus. Plump, savoury fruit nose hinting at prunes, caramelised dates, sultanas and bitter raisins with a touch of Bovril™ and Worcestershire sauce. Medium light on the palate and effervescent so shaking this off is a must. Sticky and sweet form there on. Sugary, sherbet-like berry infused front end moving through a muscat wine, vinous tale end. Soapy in feel; really does lather the tongue. Good length. Bitter, charred, savoury fruits dominate the aftertaste. Not the mind-blown Dubbel I had highly anticipated. Flawed by its soapiness. Lacking complexity and hasn’t aged well even well cellared. Disappointing. (12fl.Oz, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Block (2950) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2017
This beer has a dark and rich amber-brown pour. Fluffy off-white, tan head. Flavor is mild. A little bite at the front and a little bit at the finish. Very smooth caramel notes throughout. Nicely done. Alcohol is nearly completely masked.

Pours a dark body with a beige head. Aroma of malty bread. Taste is nice and creamy with well balanced hoppy tones and a mellow feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Matwill (101) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2017
Rating du 10 juin 2015. Essayé au mondial de la bière, belle couleur rubis avec une mousse légèrement teinté. Rien de bien extraordinaire, elle représente assez bien le genre avec ses saveurs de caramel, de sucre brûlé et un peu de fruits foncés.
