Borresteijn (6970) - Zaandam, - FEB 3, 2013
33cl Bottle from ABS Drinks Winksele, ABV 6.1%. Reddish dark brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, plums, cocoa, light roasted malts. Flavour is likewise, dry, a bit dusty, not as sweet as the aroma suggests, bitter cocoa finish. Light-bodied. OK.

MPA (999) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - APR 3, 2017
Bottle. Murky brown with beige head. Figs, caramel and toffee aroma. Sweet malt flavour with metallic and alcoholic notes and a decent bitterness.

Shark_Pants (737) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2016
330ml bottle BB 01 Dec 17. Deep hazy red with beautiful big beige frothy head, leaving nice lacing as it slowly recedes. Aromas of plums, currants, caramel, bread. The taste has lots of hearty fresh bread, caramel, plums, cherries, currants, herbal and spicy hop bitterness. Medium to full bodied, nice light prickly carbonation. Quite a good dubbel.

Muggus69 (2438) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 01/12/17 Deep bronze body, slightly murky, pours a sparse beige head. Aroma subdued but there’s promise here - nutty, biscuity malt, brown sugar, some spice & dark fruit esters, perhaps a touch of booze in the equation. Carbonation is soft, creamy, mouth-filling texture, reasonably thick, substantial without being particularly rich. Brown sugar/candi sugar sweetness up front on the body, bringing its own earthiness, amongst peppery, woody phenolics, blackcurrant & berry fruit esters. Subtle warmth on the finish. Good dubbel!

L_Lovecraft (596) - - NOV 2, 2016
Roasted notes, chocolate, brown reddish with a good light brown head, medium body, medium carbonation, roasted...not my favorite dubbel but good.

GarageBrewer80 (512) - SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2016
Köpt på landet utanför Brugge. Mörkbrun, nötig färg med smutsbrun skumkrona. Doft av brun malt och lite pumpa. Torr, söt och lite oljig kropp. Blaskig smak av kavring, karamellmalt och lite nöt.

3.5
Hopverdju (1199) - BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2016
Bruin bier met rode gloed en beige schuimkraag. Geur: geroosterde mout, iets aards. Smaak: moutzoet, karamel en licht bitter. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: droog bitterig. Best lekker.

Rubin77 (2046) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 10, 2016
F: big, lasting, pale brownish,. C: reddish to brown, opaque, hazy. A: little cocoa, little coffee, hint of vinous, caramel, dark fruit. T: syrupy sweet, caramel, brown sugar, little cacao, hint of dark cherries, plums, mocha, medium body, a little dry finish, good carbonated, ABV on the bottle 7,5%, good Dubbel anyway, 0,33l bottle from beer festival in February in Brugge.

3.6
Vignale (3785) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2016
Flaska från Beernavigator ca 1,5 år gammal. Coca colafärgad, klar, lågt skum som långsamt försvinner utan att lämna rester. Mogen doft av torkad frukt, madeira, cola, plommon. Mjuk och rund i munnen, måttlig sötma, aningen platt och lite dammig vilket kanske är ett ålderstecken. Fin fruktig smakbild med väl integrerad smaker, lätt kärnbeska. En trevlig dubbel.

3.7
sjogro (3968) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2015
Lekker aan de bruin! Roggebrood en olie. Lekker vet mondgevoel kenmerkend voor Viven. Lekker met kaas! Backlog from 2015/03/27.
