Bottle 0,33. Pours chestnut with medium off-white foamy head, nice lacing. Aroma yeast, malts, toffee, brown sugar, dried fruits. Taste follows the aroma, somewhat sweet with brown sugar and raisins in the aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. rodsquad (243) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle as gift. Pours deep brown with a foamy beige head. Aromas of Cola Cubes, toffee malt and a gentle orange sherbet. Flavours of warm, spicy stewed apples and a light orange and lemon zest. Surprising light, sparkly body. This looked heavy but was beautifully light and sweet with real zesty refreshment. A seriously nice beer. Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle. Another icon that I’m surprised to find I’ve never recorded notes on this. As advertised, it is indeed chestnut colored, and emblematic of the style. Rich and sugary, tightly weaved, nutty, and sweet. My "score" may seem a bit low just because I’m not a huge fan of the style.

Bottle. Reddish-Brown in colour. Fruity (dried fruits and berries). Malty (caramel, toffee, candy sugar, chocolate). Spicy & Yeasty (some floaties & sediment). Sweetish with bitter hoppy edge. Nice. (2008)

Pours with a big, thick head but dissipates to a ring quickly; copper-brown colour. The aroma is Belgian yeast and brown sugar. The taste is breadiness, caramel and dark fruits with a spicy, dry finish. Light-medium body, rather fizzy in the mouthfeel. A solid dubbel but expected more.

Sample with some friends, brown beer, medium head. Aroma is malt, caramel. Taste is the same, quite sweet, not bad. klakier (3) - Deurne (Antwerpen), BELGIUM - FEB 11, 2017 does not count

Has aged very well, exquisit taste. Developed wonderfully into a rich dark beer, full of body and layers. nasty3939 (30) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle from WOB in Destin. I’m not a big Dubbel drinker but this is just a good beer. Full bodied with a great slightly sweet malt taste.
