Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2006
(Bottle) Pours clear redish mahogny. Light citrusy/grapefruity aroma with fruit, nutmeg and some other spices. Ripe pears and notes of wet tobacco. Good, light roasted maltyness. Some anise hints in flavor with nutmeg/spices and a light saltyness. Roasted nuts and toffee Lively carbonation with a round, chocolaty mouthfeel. Light to medium body. 5+ for the bottle design.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with MrBendo. Aroma: Some nice fruit in the nose with notes of bananas and raisins. Belgian yeast comes through strong. Some bready maltiness and a bit of caramel. Appearance: Pours a hazy garnet color with some dark orange highlights. Off white head was medium sized and foamy, but didnt last long. Nice lacing. Flavor: Fruitiness returns in the flavor, this time with more of a grapey flavor to accompany the banana. Some light spice, breadiness, caramel, vanilla, and candi sugar. A bit more hop bitterness than I was expecting. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Alcohol warming in back of mouth. Overall: This isnt exactly a Dubbel, but its good nonetheless.

pineypower (3191) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Pours out a orangeish hue of amber with a very small lacing white head. Aroma is of some fruit, spice and yeast. Taste is complex with notes of yeast, raisin, rosemary and a touch of roasty/earthy malts on the finish. Decent beer

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2006

vyvvy (6125) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Sampled with Beerdrenched. Pours lightly hazy bronze with a crimson hue along with a tan head that is fairly small. The aroma is sweet and fruity with dark fruits (figs and raisins) along with some spice that seems like nutmeg and cinnamon. Medium body with quite a bit of soft carbonation. The taste starts with dark fruits, Belgium yeast, but not the thick earthiness that comes with most Belgium dubbels. The finish has some anise and traces of peat smokiness as well as some light roastiness. Very nice American interpretation of a Belgium standard.

Pours deep amber into a snifter. Head quickly subsides to skim surface. Warm raisin and plum aromas. Lightly carbonated with spicy smoked nutmeg and lasting bitter finish.

bottle-thanks to vyvvy for sharing this awesome brew. I have never had a bad smuttynose brew. This could be the most consistent microbrewery in existence. pours garnet read with a small soapy off-white head. nose is nice-fruity, plums, dark fruit, very sweet with some light spices. i get a note of crushed red grapes as well. flavors are dark fruits, earthy notes with some light belgian character. this is the best american abbey dubbel i have ever had. This is great!

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 20, 2006
Dark brown body with ruby-red highlights and a finger of off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing. Smells like banana with hints of yeast and citrus. Tastes like banana, citrus, and nut. Medium-bodied, but a little lighter than I was expecting for the style. A pretty nice dubbel though, but not the best Ive had.

Thanks to MrBendo for this one. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with faint head. Aroma of malt, yeast and spice. A very nice Belgian style. Flavor is sweet spices and malty ripened fruit. Very good.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2008 Dark dirty brown with a bit of tan head. Very sweet aroma , malty and roasty. Similar flavor, with a lot of brown sugar and ripe fruit. Low carbonation and alcohol, very smooth and thicker than average. No bitterness, not very well balanced, but otherwise excellent.
