marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - SEP 24, 2009
On draught everywhere in Belgium it seemed. Starting to compete with Jupiler for sign dominance. Rich creamy head, reddish brown color, fairly sweet. Light roasted malty flaovrs. Woody duration. Not too bad.

MAGICuenca91 (26) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - JAN 11, 2017
Buena cerveza de abada. Superior a la Blonde. Nunca dira que est al nivel de otras cervezas de abada, ms bien al contrario. Es una buena cerveza, pero no mucho ms. Aroma, sabor y paladar bueno. Buena cerveza sin muchas ms pretensiones.

On draft in cafe in Gent. Very poor aroma. Taste if roasted malts and molasses, brown sugar; quite flat. Disappointing double.

LittleWolf (11) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 10, 2016
Aroma: Oven roasted stone-fruit - a combination of fruity esters and a hint of fruit and roast from the malt. A little subdued. Some very feint marmite type character at first smell but dissipates quickly. Appearance: Very dark mahogany in colour. Tan head that settles quite quickly into a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Taste: Like aroma, a little subdued. Some dark fruit character up-front, a clean, malty mid-palate with a watery finish. Surprisingly, a little after the watery finish the malty/fruity/sweetness comes back onto the palate for a longer/fuller finish. Flavour rounds out and softens as it warms. Palate: Medium to full up-front. Some quite biting carbonation, which I think results in the watery mid-section. Fruity/sweet but not cloying finish. Overall: A tasty beer that improves as it warms. Showing some age, although very slight considering it was bottled in Jan 2015.

maledictum (760) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - DEC 1, 2016
A deep red beer with a fine head. The aroma is slightly sweet of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, roasted bread before it ends on a slight bitter note. A nice dubbel.

MelvinKalksma (1223) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, berries and bread.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit and berries; ends slightly dry with bread.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma could be stronger, the appearance is great and the palate is decent. A very fruity Dubbel that does nothing bad, nor very well.

kaserov (364) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 3, 2016
Color marrn oscuro casi negro, turbio, con capa de espuma marrn claro de dos dedos de grosor (buena retencin). Carbonatacin a tope (pero se pierde a los 15 minutos de haber vertido la cerveza, con lo cual queda una textura acuosa que le pega todava menos que la carbonatacin excesiva que tiene en un principio). Aroma a malta y algo de levadura, mnimo. Sabor a malta tpico de Dubbel pero con un final metlico muy remarcado que se lleva todo por delante. Floja.

tricksta_p (3896) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, spices, candy sugar, raisins, nutmeg. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is almost medium but feels a bit thin for the style. I am not a fan, its so dull and mediocre.
