The dark ruby color and the white head reminds me of the Chimay Bleue, but with a bit less character. The aroma is an interesting mix of yests and something spicy and herbs. The yests taste is also prominent, with a very pleasant bitterness and the beer almost sets my teeth on edge in a funny way. I liked also the fizzy sensation on the tongue. Nice!

Alengrin (2813) - BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2014
Classic Belgian abbey dubbel since 1956 but with a history dating far more back in time. Hazy bronze colour, thick light beige head; caramelly and biscuity malts, iron again like in the Blond (I assume head stabilizing agent), pear, walnuts, banana, orange peel; bitter sweet main taste, somewhat metallic, caramelly and nutty with leafy hops in the finish. Just an ordinary dubbel with an industrial feel to it, but I’d prefer this anytime over its Leffe or Grimbergen counterparts.

radarsock (1082) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Purchased in town earlier today. $6.99 for the 750 mL bottle. Pours a maroon reddish light brown with which an off-white head half a finger in length stood. Aromas of celery salt, burnt plastic, melted wax, Carapils, cotton/cheesecloth, furniture wood, and Belgian yeast. Tastes the same with the addition of ground cinnamon, sugar plums, and lime soda. An intriguing yet minorly disconnected Dubbel. Mouthfeel was like sloshing tap water around in your cheeks.

TtV (165) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle 30cl. Brown, but not too dark with a tiny off white head that fades quickly. Slight malts in the aroma. Taste is flat, bitterness all the way. Nothing special.

Bottle poured. Golden brown in color with tan head and generous lacing and noticeable floaties. Malty aroma with hints of caramel and floral hops. Medium oily body. Starts very sweet with hints of caramel that dance on the tongue. Finishes somewhat bitter. After taste brings the beer down a little.

Donker amberkleurig bier met ruime schuimkraag. Neus: caramel, bessen, koriander en specerijen. Mondgevoel is licht kruidig met vage bitterheid; nasmaak met tonen van geroosterde mout en licht zoet.

Excalibur123 (237) - Soria, SPAIN - NOV 10, 2014
Color ámbar oscuro con abundante cabeza de espuma beige dejando una fina capa en la copa; en la fase olfativa se aprecia caramelo, frutos rojos, cilantro y especias, en boca entrada suave y especiada con débil amargor; pos gusto con notas a malta tostada y ligeramente dulce, siguen notas a naranja amarga, cuerpo ligero con carbónico medio; equilibrada y fácil de beber en una buena cerveza de Abadía.
