PapaSkeetSkeet (1009) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Flavor/aroma is toffee sweetness wonderfully blended into a low to moderate level of comfortable bitterness. Very sweet, I thought it was tasty and good to drink, but Ive heard of people complaining of its excessive caramel, which I can see. Nice.

Started out strong, and then failed miserably in the taste department. Sucks that this is one of the last beers I drank in my youth.

On tap at the World Beer Festival - Richmond on 06/12/2010. Cloudy brown body with a small frothy brown head. Sweet fruit and malt aroma with light tartness. Sweet malt flavor with some caramel, fruit and molassas, slightly tart. Medium body with moderately high carbonation.

ClubGonzo (5653) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2010
On tap @ Petrus Cafe, Ieper. Dark brown classic dubbel body with a medium off-white head. Nose is nothing but mild candy sugars. Taste is also very mellow, with ale yeast, candy sugar and hints of honey melon. Is this a "Belge Speciale" with added sugars? Does not taste like a proper dubbel at all. Drinkable, but pretty default and not true to the genre.

JDBaker11058 (2071) - Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Appearance: dark chocolate brown with copper highlights and a light brown fizzy head. Aroma: apple cider and caramel, molasses and brown sugar and dark spices. Taste: very sweet; like a caramel-covered, slightly sour granny smith apple up front, then rolling into rich and toasty malts. Finish: smooth and sweet, with a lingering tingle. Notes: The back of the bottle says it has a slightly caramelized flavor. Aint nothing slight about it. I enjoyed this quite a bit, but it was definitely on the sweet side. Tons of caramel and brown sugar here.

zeek (194) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2010
Perfectly dark brown color and medium white head. Mild malty flavor starts slowly and finishes strongly at the sides of the mouth. Great mouthfeel, small bubbles enhance the flavor. Slightly sweet aftertaste. Very good.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours with a brown body with a reddish hue and a small off-white head. The aroma is very sweet with hints of cherry, licorice, belgian candy sugar, and just a faint hint of acidity. The flavor is pretty much the same. I thought it would be too sweet, but Im finding that it isnt. A bit spicy on the back of the throat. A unique brew. Medium bodied with low carbonation on the palate. Overall: I doubt I buy this one again, but its pretty solid.

Dark brown with a large beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, dark overripe fruits, yeast and caramel. Sweet and yeasty flavor with roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, dark overripe fruits, Finished sweet.
