Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle corked and capped poured into a trappist glass. Pours translucent brown with reddish hue and medium light brown head. Thick small bubble lacing, well carbonation, and sweet dark fruit aroma. Taste is dark candy sugar and dark fruit. vipinvelp (4507) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2013
Dark brown with big brown foam head lacing to glass. Aroma is bit caramel, bit nutty, bit hoppy. Taste is not too sweet, bit strong bitterness. Interesting beer. (Velp 201310) Foudebiere (49) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2013
À l’ouverture de la bouteille, il y a une intense odeur de cassonade, en plus d’une présence de levure. Dans le verre la cassonade est moins présente et la levure a disparue, mais c’est plus fruité, telle une prune. La mousse est beige avec un goût sucrée. Au goût, c’est encore la cassonade, mais il y a un côté prune et caramel lorsqu’elle se réchauffe. Pour une bière à près de 9% il n’y a pas de présence d’alcool dans l’odeur ou dans le goût. En général, je trouve que c’est une bonne Dubbel, mais elle manque de complexité, de subtilité. rederic (3340) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2013

Bottle. Moderate cereal and roasted for the malt, faint orange for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with date, toffee and brown sugar. Head is small, frothy, beige with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. More acidic and bitter then most Abbey Dubbels, but still a tasty beer

Dark red brown beer with quickly disappearing foam. Smells of liquorice, hints of coffee and caramel in the aroma. Full body, relatively bitter finish which is a bit surprising, Certainly not sweet or sour TrefwoordPunk (1281) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2013
Botlle 33 cl. Pours dark brown with a small head that leaves some traces to the glass and an aroma of caramel, malts, some hops, licorice, raisin, chocolate and molasses. On the taste there’s licorice again, herbs, ripe fruits, chocolate, nuts, cream and some alcohol. A nice and pretty original double! KyotoLefty (10539) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle from ABC Leuven. Dark brown with orange-red tints and a huge, airy head. Big malty nose, chocolate, fudge, raisins, treacle, orange. Rich and malty. This is the kind of thick, juicy dubbel I dig. Chocolate fudge and tracle, with dried fruits, and just enough tart orange and bitter hop to balance it balanced. Finishes quite clean and dry. Rich and thick body. Slightly roasty in the finish. Excellent.
