Bottle @ home. Aroma is caramel malt with some red fruit. Flavour is malty sweetness of caramel, slight bready note, some fruit and a touch of metal. Boring standard dubbel. MaartenRF10 (1959) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2012

Dark red-brown colour. No head. malty and some sweet, fruity notes. Slight smokiness in the finish. Not a nice mouthfeel; big carbonation and thin texture. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Murky brown body with pillowy light tan head. Lively body. Aroma has Belgian yeast, nutty, caramel, earthy, sharp hops. Classic style. Low carbonation. Taste is pretty metallic (or astringent), not as sweet as most dubbels but also missing body and character. Feels industrial. Not great. (33cl bottle, very cheap at the brewery shop) vipinvelp (4604) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2012
Dark brown poor and small off-white very fast dissapearing foam head. Strong taste, nuts and yeast, bitter too. Somewhat sweet finish, not my favorite I think. (Velp 201104) thanatosti (1873) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2012
