KnutAlbert (6435) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2006
Full sweet taste, a bit of a sour/bitter fisnish. Lots of flavor here. Port/sherry aroma, some fruit - plums and apples spring to mind. A fine beer.

bluevegie (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2006
Amber brown body with a light tan head. Initial slight burnt caramel aroma folowed up with dried fruits and spice. No noticeable caramel in the taste, more of the spices, a little bit thin although the flavour lasts the length.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2006
Bottle. Hazy ruby colour, thick long lasting head. Aroma is yeasty spice. Promising. My first few sips had a nasty metallic aftertaste to them but gradually disappeared. Taste is quite full and not to sweet. I actually think this is a very decent dubbel (and at a good price too).

tommy8768 (120) - Litlle Compton, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 25, 2006
cloudy light brown color, head starts off promising but fades away quickly with decent lacing. Has a wine-like aroma. Very sweet taste with nut and toffee notes. Similar to Rochefort 8. Very good.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Pours a brownish red with ruby red highlights when held to the light. Head was smaller, bubbly tan that diminished and left some very slight lacing. Aroma was very fruity, caramel and toffee, sweet maltiness and Belgian sugar. Flavor of more of the fruitiness, Belgian yeast, some nuts, caramel, sweet sugary maltiness and a light lingering spiciness.

Poured a very nice hazelnut color and had a nice head. The aroma was of mix of spices. The spices came alive when drinking also had a nice fruity/sweet taste that blended well with the spiciness.

1 pint 9.4 oz. Poured a hazelnut/brownish color with a think white head. Aroma was definately a delicate mix of spices. The taste carried over with the spices and it felt very caramel like in palate texture and it had a nice bite to it. Very nice beer and i would buy it for a special occasion again.
