11.2 oz brown bottle

Brouwerij Boelens Dubbel Klok filled my tulip glass with a dark brown/amber hue that formed a nice 1 1/2-finger frothy off-white head that dissipated rather fast. The nose was of light malt and had a toasty character. The taste was dominated by the flavor of caramel, toffee, and dark fruit. The mouth feel was medium with active carbonation.

Overall, a nice drinking Dubbel - I enjoyed it,

Pours a fairly clear dark brown with an inch of foam with great lacing.

Smells sweet with some spice, I get cinnamon, but lots of caramel and some candi sugar.

Very sweet malty without going overboard, not much if any bitterness. Some light bread.

Near perfect mouthfeel.

Such a smooth drinking Dubbel. It may not be the highest rated Dubbel but I enjoyed every drop.

Poured from 330mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: murky dark brown hue with a half-finger of frothy tan foam. Not too bad, but not indicative of a big creamy carbonation.

Smell: lightly malty aroma with a bit of a toasty character. Smells more like an amber ale than a dubbel; pretty anemic for the style.

Taste: toasty, caramelly malt with a little bit of earthy hop character. This is really much more like a bog-standard amber ale than a dubbel in flavor. It's not bad, but it's a little boring.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation -- surprising considering the minimal head. There's a pretty good creaminess here, too -- this is much more like a dubbel.

Overall: kind of like a sweet, very slightly Belgian-y amber ale. The texture is very good, but beyond that it's kind of limited.

Poured dark dark brown, nearly stout or porter. Half inch head which fell away after a few moments. Left a nice lace ring with foam centered in the chalice. Smells of cascade or saaz hops but I dunno what was used. Very nice mouthful malt toasty hoppy notes . Smooth pulls with carbonation through out. Not a chimay replacement but very nice once in a while drink . Would buy again.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark red-orange amber with a fine one finger light tan head with great retention and thick lacing. Aroma of bready and caramel malt, orange, apple family fruit, clove, somewhat earthy. Flavor is caramel malt, toffee, dark dried fruit, clove and Belgian yeast, well balanced. Medium body with pleasant light creaminess. A very well integrated, flavorful dubbel with lots of almost aged tasting caramel, mixed fruit and mild Belgian spicing. I really like the balanced, melded flavors and will definitely look for this again.

330 ml bottle into chalice, best before 12/24/2015. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, plum, pear, apple, light banana, caramel, toast, candi sugar, brown bread, clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, pear, apple, light banana, caramel, toast, brown bread, candi sugar, clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, pear, apple, light banana, caramel, toast, candi sugar, brown bread, clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good dubbel. Good complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.
