dark red-brown colour,fine creamy head, vinegar, cherry and plum aroma, very smooth, slightly too much carbonation, notes of alcohol and apple, long dry bitter finish

Ernest (7695) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2002
Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium orange-brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (light bread, caramel), lightly yeasty (dough), with light notes of clove, orange peel, and toffee. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, creamy and syrupy mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Flavor is on the sweet/acidic side, and the aroma is somewhat light despite being pleasant. Very well-hidden alcohol and a nice mouthfeel, though.

A very nice thick brown ale. The caramel flavors really helped to put this one over for me. Another excellent Belgian

3.5
SimonPatrice (312) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2002
Burnt caramel color, nice beige head. Caramel and alcohol aromas with pine notes when cold. Slightly oily, caramel and malt flavours.

Slightly sour, but sweet and malty at the same time.. Color is very nice dark brown

Bloemart (257) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2001
This brown dubbelale has a sweet palate, and strong robust taste.

I wasn’t quite sure what to make of this. Absolutely no head or carbonation. Caramel,yeast, sour flavors all going on at the same time. I think I may need to try it again just to get a handle on what was going on.

fraternie (1011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2001
Incredibly smooth. A little sour. Fruity/ carmel malt. Interesting and enoyable.

3.9
Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 25, 2001
Other than Stella, are the Belgians capable of making bad beer??? Another winner - high alcohol, very dark, bore some resemblance to a doppelbock, but spicier. Hints of caramel, heavy malt, but the finish was not as sticky as I expected (a la Het Kappitel).

2.9
Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2000
A fairly rich, yeasty example. The kind of beer that will have some fairly devoted fans, and others will be ambivalent.
