Kosmokrator (497) - ITALY - OCT 25, 2014
Limpido color rubino scuro con soffice velo di pannosa schiuma beige. Aroma non eccessivamente intenso, fruttato e caramellato; gusto dolce, rotondo e maltoso con spiccate note di frutta passita, zucchero caramellato e un piý delicato tocco speziato. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, vellutata al palato.

Hazy, brown. Average head. Fairly regular aroma. Medium body, average carbonation. Rich bitter and sweet taste. Looks like the Achel 5 variant, but tastes a lot better.

eduardovl (891) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
Poured in a Grimbergen chalice. Taking this one just after the Achel Blond. I was expecting a Belgian Strong Dark Ale but itís a Dubbel! :) Nevertheless, it has a very nice appearance and itís probably the best Dubble Iíve ever had. A: Dark Amber color, just a bit cloudy. Thick and creamy head. S: Sweetish. Aroma of spices, malts, caramel, yeast. T: Brown malts, caramel, and sweet bread with some smooth bitterings from the hops (sweet spices and dark fruits?). M: Long aftertaste. Could feel more the 8% ABV here, if compared with the Blond. D: Again, a very a discrete Trappist but not underrated at all. Remarkable. [ BA Review @ 11/12/2009 ]

Een erg rijk bier. Hoewel het donker is, is het niet zwaar. Een fruitige afdronk en gebrande mout.Lichte schuimkraag.

TtV (94) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Brown colour with lots of light brown head. Aroma has sweetness like sugar or caramel. Some alcohol too. Thereís a sweetness in the taste, but itís also a bit spicy. Quite good.

ForlornHope (74) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2014
Aroma is of fruit, malt and burnt sugar. 33 cl bottle pours with a huge head which settles nicely. Red-brown in colour. Taste is fruit, malt and sugary sweetness, with a bitterness coming through. Full bodied with a rich almost sticky texture. Average carbonation and a bitter finish with some warming alcohol. Overall a great beer, and despite itís strength, one that can easily lead to another.
