12 oz bottle of re-formulated(?) 7.2% ABV ale called "Abbey Dubbel". Consumed from a snifter near the best by date on the label: 30 March 2013. Pours a nice orange-mahogany color, clear despite a tiny amount of sediment, The head is small, short-lived, and leaves little lacing.

Aroma/Taste: nice and true to style; sweet with plenty of dark fruit; brown sugar, toffee/caramel. The flavor largely follows the nose. Still sweet, and a tad too sweet, but not as sweet (or yeasty) as the nose indicates.

M: not bad but a bit too asteingent and thin.

O: Not up with the finer Belgian dubbels but certainly respectable and far less expensive in the US

Pours with very little foam but nice dark brown/amber color. Smells like bitter fruit. Mouthfeel pretty good with weak coating but nice carbonation. Overall with 7.2% alcohol it's fairly easy to drink and nothing spectacular about it. Average but good

different label on bottle? and a 7.2% abv onthis one?
poured flatly into my tulip glass; thin, transparent brown with no foam or fizz on top.
not much aroma, although i think i'm getting a candy-something in there...
taste is thin, kind of bland. some fruit, lots of malt. here is the website to this one in case it isn't the same as the one i'm writing on:
definitely flat. easy to drink for a 7.2%, but like most of theri beers i've tried, there is a 'fishy' taste to it. i just cant get into much of the stuff from this brewer, but it's not bad. maybe it's just psychological....

Pours a golden orange color, light haze, soapy head. Scent is quite yeasty and peppery, lacing many other qualities of the style. Taste follows suit... Mostly yeast and spice, lacking firm malt presence and fruitiness. Moderate carbonation. Weak sauce... Nothing too bad, but nothing really good either.
