looks great except for the head, which fizzes away to practically nothing way too soon. aroma is caramel, fruity. plum is prominant in the taste.

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2003 From "Bistro des Bières Belges" on Montreal's south shore. Fruity nose. It tastes a great relatively complex toffee/almond/berries mix. A subtle bitterness gently conquers the late mouth presence.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2003
Mine looked exactly like the picture , beautiful. Smelt of yeast, raisins, and a touch of orange and citrus aswell and perhaps some toffee. The palate was definitely yeasty, but nicely soft, rounded and long. Quite raisiny, with some late citrus orange, some nice late bitterness, and some slight acid.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Aroma is floral and chocolate. Appearance is ruby brown with a nice head. Flavor is caramel and spice and everything nice. Some citrus fruit lurking in the background. Palate is spicy and stings a little. Alcohol is well hidden. Not the most complex Belgian Strong Ale but a very nice beer.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2003
Trapiste ale, big rich wonderful belgian brown ale. Rich in esters, some banana and raisin and plumb notes. There are so many similar beers in Belgium. Sweet but finds balance and a smooth finish. Banana esters are a little out of place.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2003
An assertive cocoa yeast powder induces earthy cherry flavors...A luxurious, sweet fruit salad syrup develops into alcoholic bitter/acid flames...This lively sleep medicine may be a bit too young...

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 16, 2003
The beer pours a nebulous deep brown color, the head portly in size, frothy in structure, the color a light tan with the residual lace a nice coating upon the glass. Nose is a bit plummish, sweet malt, fresh and pleasant to the senses with a sweet malt start and the top middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is stingingly acidic, the hops purposeful in their spicy bite, quite dry aftertaste and a nice warming sensation from the relatively high ABV, Quite a drinkable beer, and much better than the blond.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2003
This beer poured a very cloudy dark brown with some sediment present. It formed a nice off white bubbly head that left circular lace. Some carbonation is present. An aroma of malt, caramel and a touch of cherry. A flavor of malt and caramel. The finish was a touch astrigent with a bit of sweetness to it. Overall I am not as big on dubbels as other styles of Belgians. But all in all, this is another nice beer from this brewer.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Medium beige head. Dark brown colour. Aroma is very nice; malt, raisins, vinous, fruits (apple, berries?). Very sweet taste with some spice.

bierkoning (10385) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2003
Orange and dark brown color with a frothy head. Chunks of yeast. Tropical fruit aroma and flavor, especially pineapple. Some late hopbitterness. Licorice. Hints of sourness. Well made beer, that lacks the complexity of many other trappist ales.
