Bottle from Carrefour. Pours hazy dark brown with a diminishing, frothy, tan head; no lacing. The aroma contains yeast, dark frutis, iron, licorice, spices, hops, some prunes. It tastes light malty & fruity sweet and light to medium spicy bitter; yeasty, hoppy, slightly metallic finish. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation - creating lots of bubbles on the tongue. Could have been better, the iron ruined it a bit. TomHendriksen (1121) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2018

From Sep 2006
Poured from caged and corked 750ml(dated 2 04) a cloudy orange-brown with a huge head of foam that slowly shrank until there was just a fine layer but there's plenty of lacing.
The smell is of sweet caramel and has notes of fruit(plum) and something else sweet...maybe cinnamon.
The taste...first thing I notice is the plum I mentioned in the smell. That's followed by some caramel sweetness and a bit of molasses with a touch of sourness close to and through the finish. There's other fruitiness in there as well, mainly orange but a wee bit of banana. As for the 8%abv, it doesn't show up in the taste at all.
Dang. I'm liking this dubbel and I had a fresher bottle a couple of years ago that didn't please my palate the way this +2 year old sample is. Good. There's at least 6 more bottles of this waiting for me in the store. ;^)
Bottom line: I like this Dubbel. A lot. I recommend it.

Bottle from Carrefour City Supermarket, Brussels, Belgium. Hazy brown with red highlights and a thick white head. It has a rich red and dried fruity flavour with malty notes, spices and currants and plum on the warming finish. Very good. vinivini (3284) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 4, 2017
Bottle. Hazy chestnut brown liquid with abundant beige head. Excellent retention & lacing. The aroma is very spicy. Coriander. Additional candy, toffee, caramel. Medium body. Dryish taste. Caramel, candy, some bread, dried fruit, spicy yeast. Well-hidden alcohol. Low to light bitterness. All in all a decent Dubbel from non-elite area.
