jjsint (1462) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Bottle at the Elm Tree, Cambridge. Muddy light chocolate  colour with a small creamy khaki head. Berries, chocolate, a touch of cedar. Full sweet taste with a bitter/sour vinous coat. Delicious bittersweet finish. Of course it’s good, but not my favourite Trappist Dubbel.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2015 Way too sweet. Interesting plum, dry fruits flavours though. Full bodied, average carbonation.

Questa trappista ha un colore bruno intenso e una schiuma persistente e frizzantina. È una buona strong ale belga ma non l’ho apprezzata eccessivamente per via di una elevata carbonazione che secondo me è un po’ esagerata e copre gli altri sapori di questa birra. È molto nota e rinomata per cui sicuramente in futuro la riproverò, magari mi è capitata anche una bottiglia non al meglio.

kwik-lime (1517) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015
Really smooth, sweet and malty beer with hints of fruit and nut. Very pleasant silky feel in the mouth, flavours didn’t come through quite as strongly as I was expecting though. Still an excellent beer.

S_jenk (4) - - MAR 22, 2015 does not count
It looks like red ale from a Rocky Mtn brewery, but it packs a full flavor that is classic Trappist bier-brewing. So damn good and I'd say a top 5'er for me

blueden (31) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2015
One of the best Belgium beers I’ve tasted. A deep multi layered malt flavour that lingers . A world class beer.

0,33 cl bottle. Dark brown, hazy brown. Starts pleasantly caramel sweet with a light bitter. With some yeast.

Batavi (169) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2015
Uitgeschonken in Chimay bokaal, fraaie mistige donkerbruine kleur met fijne beige schuimkraag. Typische fijne Trappist geur van donker fruit en Belgische gist, weer een Trappist met een aangenaam aroma. De smaak is zacht en licht zoet, volgt de geur. Donker en gedroogd fruit, veel rozijnen, pruimen, karamel, iets chocolade. De afdronk is zacht mild bitter. Mooi gebalanceerd trappistenbier met fijn smaakpallet en aangename afdronk. De Achelse Kluis is een van de kleinere trappistenbier brouwerijen. Maar de smaak en kwaliteit van het bier is wederom hoog, vergelijkbaar met bijvoorbeeld Rochefort 8. Maakt nieuwsgierig naar de Achel Extra Bruin 9,5% die nog in de opslag staat.

rami_pl (557) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 2, 2015
butelka, warka do 21/05/16. Wysoka, ladna piana, opadajaca srednio powoli, nieco zostajaca na szkle. Piwoprzejrzyste o rubinow-brazowawym odcieniu. Aromaty slodowe, owocowe (wisnie przede wszystkim, troszke sliwki czy moze nawet brzoskwinie momentami, sa tez delikatne rodzynki. Alkohol w typie... hmmm... no wisni w spirytusie ;) mily, choc "spirytus" nie brzmi za dobrze w opisie - ale nie jest ten aromat agresywny. nuty karmelu, toffi wychodza momcniej po ogrzaniu. Wystarczajaco zlozony aromat, by byc ciekawym, zmiennym wraz z temperatura i kazdym lykiem. Smak slodki i lekko kwaskowaty. Goryczka niska. pelnia tez. gladkie w ustach. Alkohol w smaku lepiej ukryty niz w aromacie. Sumarycznie - bardzo dobry dubel, wyjatkowo lekki i niezobowiazujacy a zarazem wcale nie jednowymiarowy. EDIT: wlasnie zobaczylem, ze zdaniem RB to nie jest dubbel... ojtamojtam ;)
