A little too tart for my liking... an ale like this, I crave how full bodied, malty, and semi-sweet it should be... love the blood red look behind the light and appreciate the deeper sweet aroma it pushes. The taste, that is less burnt sugar and more a sitting tart fruit of some sort makes it less than desirable for the after dinner beer we were hoping it would be...

3.53/5  rDev -3.3%

Appearance: Pours a burnt caramel color capped by an inch of foam that fades rather quickly; some spotty lacing is left behind

Smell: Caramel, dates, candi sugar and a hint of phenols

Taste: Caramel and dates, up front, with the sugary sweetness building in the middle; after the swallow, the phenols add a hint of plastic

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not a bad beer but decidedly mediocre for the style; there is no complexity from the yeast strain and the phenolic element is a flaw

3.34/5  rDev -8.5%

Attractive dark red brown color in the Duvel tulip. Plenty of foam and a sudsy mouthfeel, but quite light bodied. Not much aroma.

The flavor is kind of flat and sweet, with an unwelcome medicinal bitterness at first sip. I tell you the truth-- this is a lot like the many actual mediocre beers you get in Belgium. It has the odd mix of candy and cardboard with some burnt raisins.

After some sipping the flavor is taken over by the flinty, dry sensation. If you sip it slowly and let it warm up, the flavors seem to mellow and improve. But given the competition in this category it's hard to score this much above average. Lovely packaging and nothing technically wrong, but we can be choosy with this style.

3.64/5  rDev -0.3%

22oz bottle poured into two big snifters. 169 D-1 1913 is the bottle code on the bottom in thin, dark letters.

Pours with very little head, but lots of carbonation when you swish it around. Translucent but dark brown, not very cloudy. Smell is Belgian yeast, dates and dark fruit. Some funk.

Taste follows the flavor. Belgian yeast, dates, and dark fruit, but not much funk. A little bit of bittersweet character.

Mouthfeel is thin, slightly oily. Overall, this is definitely not the best dubbel I've had, and definitely not the best Sound beer I've had. Not bad, though.

22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours hazy very dark reddish brown color with a small light khaki head with decent retention, that reduces to a small lace cap. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, dark bread, molasses, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent and unique Dubbel style. All around great balance and complexity of malt and yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

22oz bomber purchased at Total Wine in Spokane for $6.99. There’s a space for a bottling date on the label, but it has been left blank. I think I tried this on-tap at Jones a while back, but I could be thinking of their IPA.

Poured a dark, cola-like color, taking on a dark, rubyish hue when held up to light. Minimal tan head that dropped away rather quickly.

Rather weak aroma for the style. Dark fruit and candy, but at a very low amplitude.

Tastes a little more interesting than what the aroma hints, but still not very distinctive. And where the hell is the Belgian yeast?

Very low carbonation for the style. If this was fixed, it would go a long way towards improving this beer.

Disappointing. Perhaps this is an old bottle. If the brewers had put a date where their label is supposed to feature one, I’d know whether or not that is the case. The seeming absence of the yeast is very odd.

4.14/5  rDev +13.4%

Poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, Dubbel Entendre is dark brown, with a small light sand head leaving scattered foamy lace.

Smell is fruity, lots of lime zest, which is an unusual ester skew.

Taste is also fruity and a little earthy, some yeastiness. Dark maltiness on the acrid side. Light sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium-light, dry.

Drinkability is ok, a solid dubbel, but quickly forgettable. Well executed though not necessarily designed to my liking.
