Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a ruddy dark yet burnt purple almost brown color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated evenly. Lingering sticky lace.
The aroma bleeds Belgian spiced fruit. Yeasty effects take some place with a light bready to semi-white pepper background.
The flavor balances between the yeasty/breadiness and hits the fruit and the spice fairly decent. No aftertaste but it does have a quick sweet yeasty sort of finish.
On the palate, this one was about medium in body with a fair crisp carbonation about it. Bready malts slide over in a smooth fashion on my tongue.
Overall, decent Americanized dubbel that I could have again. tgncc (3136) - Bellmore, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2015

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Malty sweet aroma, with light spicy yeast, and light fruity notes. The flavor has some dark fruity sweetness, spicy yeast, sweet toffee malts, and light apple-like notes. Nice. Lubiere (14110) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2012

Half pint draft at Blind Tiger. Pours a deep hazy brown body with thin off white lacing. Tasted like your typical, traditional style abbey dubbel. Nothing to write home about.

On tap at Flatbread. The coloris a dark hazy amber with a niece beige head and lace. The aroma is sweet and malty. The taste also sweet like caramel and spicies and the malt there is also some fruityness to it. All in all a very good Belgium Dubbel. Quevillon (3143) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2008
Bu sur place en fut (12oz seulement), le 26/9/08 (ma fête). Brune caramel brumeuse, un peu de collet. Arome de malte caramelisé aux pommes avec des notes d’épices sucrés. Goût sucré épicé très bien balancé, orge malté délicieuse et peu fruité, finission d’alcool réchaufant. Une double très solide et savoureuse, un plaisir pour les senses! bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2007
