Poured into a pint glass.

A: Clear amber with two-finger, white, creamy head that lasted a couple minutes. Okay lacing.

S: Belgian yeast, fruit. Mild.

T: Light to moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Mild dark fruits. Belgian yeast and toasty malt.

M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation.

O: Interesting beer. The taste makes up for the mild nose.

Got a single bottle from a Spirits Unlimited so it's probably pretty old (You can never find a fresh beer at a Spirits Chain in NJ, just a warning) but I figured since it's a dubbel it should hold up. (Also the only beers that ever make it to a spirits mix-a-six section is old beers and seasonals so)

Clear brown color with a head that quickly dies. Faint nose of dark belgian candy sugars, beets, caramel and toffee.

Ripe fruit flavors, on the lighter end of being medium bodied and crisp. Faint dark fruit bowl up front, followed by a sweet belgian candy sugar taste and then finishes clean with a faint lingering sweetness. The flavors are right but barely and almost undetectable (and for once it tastes kind of fresh) touch of alcohol heat. Simple light and drinkable. But that's not how I want my dubbels. This tastes more like a crossover beer as if AB-inbev made a friendly 7.99 six pack dubbel for people to try. The flavors are right if you dig for them, unoffensive, and light. Kind of like "My-First-Dubbel" kind of thing.

This is not a bad beer.
Though it Doesn't embody a true dubbel in my opinion, just an intro to one.

Pours a clear amber red with some alright head that eventually fades to nothing. Has some raisin and brown sugar notes. Some sharp alcohol in the nose as it warms . Also has some slight chewy caramel malts. Little to no hop aroma. Tastes similar to nose with medium to full mouthfeel. Flavors also give hints of fig and dark fruits (plum, dark cherry). Average bitterness for the style with a slight bite at the tail end. Overall, a very nice beer. Solid and very drinkable.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a hazy brownish-copper hue with a thin 2-finger head that quickly dissipates and leaves a wispy lace.

S: Sweet Belgian yeast aroma with a fruity background.

T: Sweet malty Belgian yeast flavor that turns tart and finished on the dry side.

M: Full body and medium carbonation.

O: This is a solid dubbel. Complex flavors and aromas.

Poured a almost clear amber brown. Not much of a bubbly white head, dissipates fast with minimal lacing.
The smell is just some malt, not much else.
Thank goodness, the taste is better. Nice combination of dark fruit, brown sugar and malt. Some earthy hops balance the palette.
Nice prickly mouthfeel, and very drinkable. A nice beer, maybe not exactly the style.

Had this at Cloverleaf Tavern in West Caldwell.

A: Pours a dark red, mahagany body with a small, white head with some lacing and minimal retention overall.

S: A lightly, sweet toffee smelling beer, but nothing too overbearing.

T: A pretty smooth, sweet grape juice tasting beer with some subtle vanilla notes and hint of toffee and sweet alcohol in the aftertaste.

M: A pretty thin but fairly decent mouthfeel. Pretty nice on the palette overall.

D: A decent mouthfeel and taste combination made for a pretty nice drinking beer. Mouthfeel could have been a bit smoother, but overall, pretty good drinking beer with some warming alcohol.
