COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
THE ALE: This clean, malty ale has a robust flavor with fruity, plum aromas. The carbonation balances the moderate sweetness from the malt, resulting in a dry and smooth finish. It pairs great with savory foods like barbecue, rich stews, grilled meats, and dark chocolate cake. THE STORY: The Colombian Monks could really cut loose during the annual retreat hosted by Del at his home near Naivasha Lake in Kenya. Smiling ear to ear and with ale in hand, they would dance the night away! You might find you are doing your own little happy dance after a glass of Danciní Monks. Drink, dance, repeat.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of bu11zeye. Pours a clean deep copper with a lacing off-white head. Explosive cork but didnít gush. Sweet caramellish nose, some overripe fruit notes. Rich body of sweet overripe fruit, a little rustic and oxidized, but pleasantly so. Some warming alcohol. A nice Belgian, but nowhere near a Dubbel in style. 250113

beastmaster (377) - Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle. More malt than hop flavors, a little unbalanced. Very carbonated, but I didn?t lose the cork when I unwound (unlike their hippo). Batch 2 bottle 2724. Bottled 3/30/12 opened 1/3/13. Better than the hippo, good beer but not great. I expect more complexity in taste. Aroma is good (best rating), appearance cloudy but thats expected when there is yeast in the bottle. 13 overall.

Out of the bottle: very well carbonated. Lots of Belgian yeasty notes on the nose. However, these donít carry over to the taste, and I get a lot of roasty flavors - and maybe some root beer - that I donít usually taste in a dubbel.

travita (4798) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Draft. The look is cloudy, beige colored head, and has a bright orange color. The smell is caramel, sweet, fruits, sugar, yeast, and decent. The taste is similar to the smell but with the alcohol coming through.

beerguy101 (5355) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Sampled on 10/11/12 at GABF. This abbey dubbel pours a light to yellow gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with a touch of yeast. A medium bodied dubbel. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. A touch yeasty. Seems to be missing some of the mouthfeel and sweetness one kin of expects in a dubbel. Still the flavors are very nice, they just seems muted. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
