Bottle. Copper brown color with a small off-white head. Malty, bready, yeasty aroma with mild alcohol notes. Starts sweet and ends sweeter, with a smooth full body. yespr (44793) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 6, 2008
75 cL bottle. Pours dark amber to brown with a huge lasting tan head. Aroma is a mix of caramel malt, light spice note and subdued yeasty. Fruity and spiced initial flavour, presumeably from the yeast. Gains some darker notes like liqourice, roasted malt, spices and smooth, yet subdued, chocolate. Light alcohol note in the finish nicely lifting the mild spice and caramel malt flavours. Nice brew. Ungstrup (37284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2005
A hazy amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroam is sweet with strong notes of yeast, while the flavor is dusty (probably the hops), yeasty, combined with notes of berries.joergen (27982) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 12, 2005

A dark red beer with a good head. It is very fruity in as well the aroma as the flavor - but it has a well rounded flavor.
Brown colour with a huge beige head.
Sweet aroma of yeast, spices and muscavado sugar.
Flavour of muscavado sugar, yeast and spices.
Not much bitterness.
Nice dubbel. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2006
Bottled. Dark brownish copper colour, mediumsized brown bubbly head. Aroma is chocolate, slight roasted malts and some flowery hops weak in the background. Flavour is roasted malts along with licorace and chocolate. Some slight hints of metal, but the metal disappears, once the beer gets a bit warmer. Long toffeeish hoppy aftertaste. Hides it’s alcohol well. A bit too biting/crispy carbonation, otherwise very nice.

(Bottle 33 cl) Pretty dark brown beer with a nice, brownish head. Yeasty nose, flavours of dried fruits, caramel and brown sugar. Very roasted malts. Very refined perfumyness - I reckon there might be some coriander thrown in here. An archetypical and excellent Dubbel. 140398 omhper (24966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2003

Bottled. Dark mahogany. Aroma of coffee and herbal spices. Sweet,soft and medium bodied. Notes of anise and yeast. Mature and rather complex, I guess this has been laying around for some time before I sampled it.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Frothy darkihs beer. Rich and complax with a dark toffee-appleish finish.
Murky and muddy brown, smallish tan head that disappears slowly and leaves decent lacing.
Aroma of caramel, butterscotch and cinnamon.
Malty flavor with light spice and some earthiness toward the end. Fair complexity.
Very nice example of the style, worth trying. Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2010
Tap at the Lowlander, London. Pours clear brown with a strong, beige head. Malts, dark fruits and Belgian sugar occupy the nose. Flavor is sweet with more fruits and dark, almost bready malts, followed by just faint bitterness. Overall, the flavor struck me as a bit thin. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Has a sweet finish with lingering, ripe fruits. Decent.
