Really cool to see a Belgian beer in a can, judgment still out on how this will hold up with Belgian beer fans. Appearance had a cherry red raisin color with a slight blood orange hue. clarity was minimal. a big off white head that dissipated somewhat quickly in the glass. The aroma was full of dark candi sugar sweetness. some toffee notes, some dark fruit notes (def. cherry) with a slight citrus and caramel aroma as well. The flavor is not exactly the same though, Some raisin notes perk up in the front. the middle seems to present the moderately strong dark sugar character that is similar in the nose. the mouthfeel i feel is a bit in the middle for a Belgian style ale. it could either finish quicker or hang out but transits while it hangs around. I believe this to be a sessionable style Belgian beer with a higher than average ABV. its aroma really did it for me and the interesting coffee acridness which i am probably confusing for a higher than average hoppyness combined with the malt character is actually very enjoyable.

I had this beer at the restaurant on-tap, as well as at Bertha's, but from a can, while in Baltimore in November 2012.

The beer appeared a nice, clear, dark ruby red color that produced a nice white head that left a thin cap. The beer gave off a nice sweet aroma with hints of yeast and sugar. The beer had a really good taste to it. I have to admit, that the style is not my favorite, but I have to say that this is probably the best of the bunch that I have tried. Sweet maltiness with hints of sugar. A hint of alcohol is ever so noticeable. The beer had a nice moderate feel to it with nice carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a very good beer, with no let down from the one that I tried from a can. I will have this beer again the next time that I am in Baltimore.

Pours a dark walnut body beneath the bubbly tan head that quickly dissolves to leave only traces of lacing.

Aromas of sweet fruit such as plum and cherry rise from the glass accompanied by molasses and yeast but not as strong as you would expect.

Flavors also offer sweet fruit, molasses, yeast and hints of brown sugar.

Medium in body and carbonation with a drying finish.

Not bad with many traditional Dubbel characteristics just not as pronounced as some of its style counterparts.

A - Beautiful, rich, caramel color with a very dense, creamy beige head.

S - Alcohol bite on the nose followed by dried pit fruits, yeast, and even a sweet white wine smell.

T - Jarringly bitter. Grapefruit rind with a yeasty and metallic undertone with faint banana and tropical fruits.

M - Medium body, medium carbonation. Astringent finish.

D - Everything but the taste of this dubbel is a winner, it is just too bitter.

A - Pours with a two finger head of white foam on top of a hazy, amber body. The head settles at a moderate pace and leaves decent lace.

S - Some toffee, spicy Belgian yeast, and a touch of red apple.

T - Spicy yeast up front with a bit of red apple. Some toffee in the middle and more muted spice, perhaps a touch of coriander. Finishes with more of the same toasted malt and light spice.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - A bit bland for a dubbel. The yeast character is mild and the malt is not quite as dark as I would expect it to be for the style. Just not much going on here.

A: half finger head with poor retention on a slightly hazy deep amber body.

S: aroma is very very light with hints of cola, hints of molasses and toffee and some caramel.

T: very plain. some spices, very light yeast. toffee and caramel base. this one just isnt up to par with other dubbels I have had.

M: light to medium body and high carbonation.

Overall: its definitely very drinkable, its just not very flavorful. almost like a watered down dubbel.

Pours a deep dark orange with a prodigious beige head that settles down slowly. Creamy, clingy lacing. Very sweet and malty aroma; fruity yeast notes, bread, subtle citrus hops, brown sugar and molasses.

The flavor is much the same, although the sweet caramel-toffee dries up pretty well in the finish. Nice chewy malt character; a hint of booze; dark fruits, yeasty spice, and some vaguely citrusy hops just poking out and asserting a light bitterness. Unfortunately the carbonation is a little excessive and prickly and detracts from the overall enjoyment of the beer. Its hard to revel in the strong and sweet malt character without much accompanying smoothness or creaminess. The body is just a shade lighter than medium for the style which also didn't help; it could have used just a little more heft.

However not a bad brew at all; I wish the feel had been a little smoother, because the aroma and taste are both quite nice.
