Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAY 31, 2007
Very nice deep red/dark brown look with a dense creamy light brown head. Aroma is a little bit disapointing. The fruity esters arent as rich as i had hoped for, has other notes of grass and bread. Flavor is mainly hobby bitter with an underlying malty sweetenss. medium bitter finish, abit weak bodied for a dubbel.

bottle - Pours dark brown with a two finger head. It has a caramel malt and yeast aroma. I was also picking up a little chocolate and dark fruit. The flavor is sweet with the caramel malts leading hte way and some dark fruit notes. Medium bodied, it has a mild finish.

adrian910ss (2570) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Pours a reddish brown with a massive thick beige head. Complex aroma of dates, plums, prunes, sweet malts, banana, grapes and dough bread. Slightly carbonated taste of dark fruit, dough bread, yeast and malts. Not as good as some of the other higher rated belgiums.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 Bottle, thanks HogTownHarry! Pours dark deep amber/chesnut with a small beige head. Aroma is a very malty, with the perfect sweetness for a dubbel, also a bit of fruits make themselves known. Flavor is sweet malts and breadiness up front, with some floral almost hoppy touches coming in, followed quickly a dry finish. Mouthfeel is perfectly carbonated, to finish dry, and provide enough time to get just enough of a taste that begs you to take another sip.

Bottle: Pours deep chocolate brown with a thin light tan head, which adheres to the glass in an interesting way. Mild sweet aroma, hints of fruit and hint of hops. A marvelously balanced flavor with huge complexity. First sweet, a bit of wine-like flavor, with a noticable sour undertone, with a bit of bitterness breaking through, but no note dominates the symphony of flavors. Rich creamy texture. Truly a wonderous, nay, miraculous, perhaps divinely inspired brew.
