This beer pours a dark brown, with some ruby red tints to it. The ehad is tan. It Fades slowly, leaving many thick laces.
It has a spicy arome. I can detect some dates. It smells malty sweet. I can detect a slight citrus hop aroma. It has an earhty yeast aroma to it as well.
It is flavored strongly of dates. It is also spicy, but not overbearing. It has a sweet malt flavor. I can also taste some earthy yeast flavor.
This beer is surprisingly smooth. It leaves a spicy aftertaste. It is carbonated well for the style.
I think that this beer is a decent session beer, but it might get old after a while. The flavor is just a bit aggressive.

Mmmm, this went well with my jalapeno pizza.
Poured a reddish copper color with a finger of off-white head that left a dance of lace. The bouquet was very fruity, with some bananas and a sweet spice... seemed to finish on the nose with a pastry/gingerbread type scent, beautiful.
A delicious battery of tasty graced my mouth with butterscotch, banana, vanilla, spices and i think i could detect the dates. I dont know but it was sure good. Reminded me of a dunkelweisse on the finish. Nicely carbonated and good body. I had to have two pints of this.

Had a pint of this lovely stuff at Pizza Port Carlsbad on Friday 9/2/05. The label over the bar said this beer was a Belgian style dubbel made with date sugar (hence the name Dubbel Date).
Appearance: Cloudy reddish-orange-brown color depending on the lighting. When backlit it was much brighter but on the table it was more brown. The head is thin and whispy with a light off white color. Unfortunately the bartender poured off some of the head making the head look weaker than it probably should have.
Taste: Sweet and strong raw sugar flavor with loads of complex offerings following the sugar. Vanilla, caramel, and a woody quality. There is the distinct Belgian yeastiness topping a sweet and full malt flavor. Fruit flavors carry the banner at the end with flavors of figs, dates (surprise!), plums and grapes. Candy sweetness characterizes the long sweet finish.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth with lots of lively carbonation. The medium bodied feel is marvelous on this one releasing the flavor in waves on the palate. Well done.
Drinkability: All around I would call this a very good and creative dubbel. It didn't match very well with the garlic and veggie pizza we had just consumed, but it was good nonetheless. Well balanced and good to style.
