Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Brown Orval. The first thing of note is the sour Brett aroma pouring from the ever-expanding head of this beer. This is a very light brown and demonstrates the difference between bruin and brown, nice color, crystal clear. Some very mellow malt flavors, a little more hops here than I would have expected. But there it is, the reason why I love belgians, the bugs -- brett, brett, brett. Truly a wonderful beer.

veronneaupy (221) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
Au nez, c'est caramelisé, sucré, alcoolisé, typique d'une brune belge. En bouche, c'est puissant, pétillant, bcp de grains, caramelisé, presque sucre d'orge/cassonade. La finale est persistante, riche, alcoolisée. Tout ce qu'on s'attend d'une brune belge! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Has the standard fruit/caramel Belgian overtone with a nice heavy malty composition.

Body dark and coffee. Slight head. Nose is sweet and fruity. Lots of taste. Full-bodied. Alcy in the finish.

HIGHB4LL (800) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2015
11.2 oz. bottle from Wilburís. Appearance: finger tan head, amber-brown to ruby color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: light prune, slight anise aroma, floral hops, light grassiness, caramel. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, slightly dry finish, light alcohol warming sensation. Taste: sweet caramel with prune and cherry notes that are very well balanced out by a slight grassy and floral hop character, with an alcoholic warming finish. Overall, super smooth, very desirable tastes and aromas, amazing beer.

jjsint (1223) - 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 itís good, but not my favourite Trappist Dubbel.

I really love the blond but this is way too sweet. Interesting plum, dry fruits flavours though.

lello4ever (204) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Questa trappista ha un colore bruno intenso e una schiuma persistente e frizzantina. » una buona strong ale belga ma non lího apprezzata eccessivamente per via di una elevata carbonazione che secondo me Ť un poí esagerata e copre gli altri sapori di questa birra. » molto nota e rinomata per cui sicuramente in futuro la riproverÚ, magari mi Ť capitata anche una bottiglia non al meglio.

kwik-lime (1459) - 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 didnít 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

One of the best Belgium beers Iíve tasted. A deep multi layered malt flavour that lingers . A world class beer.
