A reddish-brown abbey ale brewed with dark malts. The secondary fermentation gives a fruity aroma and a unique spicy character with a distinctive aftertaste. Secondary fermentation in the bottle. (Serving temperature: 8-10ºC)

Antonio369 (47) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2016
30cl bottle, served in Trappist chalice. Poured a hazy chestnut brown with a one finger tan head. Swirled the bottle a few times around before pouring the last 10% out of the bottle to get all of the yeast out for maximum flavour. Aromas of caramel, flowers, hazelnuts, cinnamon. Tastes of caramel, cloves, orange, banana, raisins. Medium body with a pretty creamy, fruity, bitter and spicy finish. Overall a fruity and a bit too spicy dubbel. I expected more from this brew. Perhaps swirling the bottle around for that last bit of yeast in the bottle wasn’t that good an idea...

Zlotta (827) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2016
0.3 l bottle from local AH, bottled in April 2015. Clear, reddish amber with a medium large, foamy, stable, tan head. Sweetish-malty, slightly spicy aroma of treacle, brown sugar, toffee, milk chocolate and spices (coriander?). Sweet, malty and spicy taste of milk chocolate, brown sugar, toffee and spices, followed by a medium long, medium bitter, yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, creamy to sticky mouthfeel, average carbonation. Okay, but way too sweet and spicy for me. Not that easy to drink.

Samuel214 (213) - SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2016
Flaska på Stallyktan, Örebro. Söt och lite honung i doften. Kakdeg, övermogen frukt, jäst och främst fikon/russin/torkat plommon. Något mer matt och tunnare i smaken. Fortfarande torkad frukt. Lätt efterbeska.

Kauge (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle. BB 09/07/16. Hazy coppery brown with a big beige head that drops quite fast. The aroma is candi sugar at first, then becoming more fruity and earthy. Some alcohol shines through at times. Tastes semisweet, fruity and nutty, slightly caramelly, with earthy (black tea) flavoured bitterness. A touch metallic. Active carbonation. Thin. OK at best.
