Bottle to glass. Pours a brownish orange color with a light tan head. Aroma is slightly acidic, dark fruits, touch of vanilla. Flavor is quite acidic, and I don’t think it’s supposed to be. Not much on the way of belgian, cocoa, or vanilla. A bit past it’s prime I imagine. mikem409 (2026) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Tap. Honey color thin head. Aroma of nuts and candy sugar. Taste is haze nuts and nougat. Sweet. commonmac (1245) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Tap at the source. Tulip glass. Attractive amber color. Pleasant aroma with the chocolate and dark fruit making their presence felt. Taste emphasizes sweetness over bitterness. Chocolate elements add a unique dimension. Smooth and somewhat alcohol fueled. Ending sweetness lingers and gives a little of the funky Belgian quality. Chocolate aroma builds as the consumption progresses. Very solid. GothGargoyle (2587) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2015
Brown with an off white head. Aroma us chocolate, brown sugar, dates, caramel. Medium-full bodied, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, sweet on the palate. Taste is chocolate, dates, caramel. Nice. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 8, 2015
On tap at the source. Pours an amber with no head. Aroma is chocolate and candy. Peppers also. Strange beer. Chocolate. Curious.

Draft at the Bruery. Pours clear reddish copper with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like watery milk chocolate, toasted malt, and a hint of dried fruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like peanuts, chocolate, and toasted malt. slowrunner77 (12037) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 1, 2015
lighter all around than expected for an 8% dubbel. lightly bready, sweet and spiced. good, but underwhelming. DSG (14764) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[2/18/15] Draught at The Bruery in Placentia. Nice clear deep amber. Aroma of chocolate, cookies and some dark fruits. Sweetish flavor with chocolate, some cookies, fruitiness, a bit of spiciness and an alcoholic note. Medium-bodied. hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Tasted at the Bruery tasting room. Poured an amber color with a small sized off white head. Dark fruits, some chocolate, and some yeastiness. DesertDevil (699) - Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2015
From a 32-oz. growler. The rather typical dubbel nose features cocoa powder, banana esters, light plums, yeasty raisin, brown sugar, pie dough, and cinnamon. Clear dark copper in color; no head. Malted chocolate is the main flavor, followed by dark plums, a touch of cloves, molasses, and faint vanilla, all capped by a minor herbal tone and the tiniest hint of mint. Somewhat watery body. Just OK.
