fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle. Aroma centered around cola with some nuts, caramel, chocolate, and just a distant hint of some sort of spice. Flavor quite sweet with a big malt punch. Some nice qualities, but the cola is tough to get over for me.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Nice brune; not to sweet and heavy. Stil warm tones, like caramel and plums.

Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
Very good Dubbel. Dark and rich in flavor. I do like the combination of malty sweetishness, with its fruity sourness and a gentle bitter aftertaste. Very much to my liking.

Brown. Dark, but not too dark. Medium-sized head that lasts for ages. Aroma is caramel, bread, and chocolate. Taste is malt and brown sugar with an earthy feeling.

Myonlyvice (341) - DENMARK - JUL 26, 2017
Dark brown with a huge beige head, that lasts a long time. Medium lacing and carbonation. Aroma: Caramel, dried fruit, some slightly sour fruit (not citrusy) and yeast. Taste is malty sweetness with a slight bit of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ciocanelu (2947) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 10, 2017
Clear brown color with beige head. Aroma has mostly yeast esters with brown sugar and some sourdough. Taste starts sugary and yeasty, continues with some earthy notes and a light cardboard bitterness on the finish. Light body with a high carbonation, also quite dry on the finish. It tastes really authentic and "belgian" but it doesn’t stand out with anything.

4.1
Zarrach76 (309) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JUN 5, 2017
Belle bière grenat transparente avec de beaux reflets pourpres (EBC 50) et une bonne mousse blanc cassé. Le nez est sur les malts légèrement torréfiés, un beau parfum de noix, des notes cacaotées, un petit côté cognac, du pruneau, du caramel, de la reine-claude, de la pomme verte, des notes minérales et végétales, des épices (poivre, tabac, oseille, rhubarbe)... Une bonne Dubbel qui se démarque un peu de ses sœurs. En bouche, alcool efficace, carbonatation vive, notes pétillantes à la manière d’un Champagne (pointes de raisin également), amertume franche à l’attaque et qui s’atténue par la suite (19 IBU, donc ça reste assez soft), texture ample avec pas mal de corps. Les gorgées suivantes révèlent le côté noix fraîche assez prononcé et renforcé par une petite astringence au palet.L’alcool monte en puissance au fur et à mesure de la dégustation, mais au lieu d’y aller tout en force il arrondit les flaveurs. Cette brune donne clairement l’impression de boire une blonde triple tant ses arômes en sont proches. Le côté malts torréfiés est assez peu présent pour une brune. Le final est sur les notes légèrement minérales, les notes de raisin et de vin pétillant ainsi que cet alcool vraiment efficace sur la durée. Une bonne Dubbel d’Abbaye qui a son petit caractère bien trempée. Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrève.

fkoolen (1335) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2017
Bottle at home. Chestnut colour, thick and stable creamy beige head. Brown sugar, dried fruits, grainy malty, yeasty, co2, alcohol. Highly carbonated, medium body.

3.4
Cristobal37 (1234) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2017
Bottle from the abbey. Super dark, thick foamy head. Sugary, malty, toast and some spices. Toasty malts, some syruppy sugar, sweet overall. Slight bitterness but moslty doughy, malty and a little chocolate as well.

3.5
kapusil (1505) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 3, 2017
0.33l bottle that was part of a taster pack. Very dark brown body (an not even see through it) with an off white head. Aroma of dark sugar syrup, cocoa, toast and floral hops. Taste of cocoa, dark sugar, orange zest, floral hops and nutmeg. The cocoa powder character is surprising a bit from a dubbel. Nice beer though.
