A dark ruby coloured beer with a firm, slightly brown head. A sweet, chocolade aroma. The flavour is sweet and malty, with some spices at the end. The flavour ends slightly dry. (Bottle 33cl)

2nd go-around this this brewer. The first beer I had (Blond) was excellent, so I was really looking forward to it and it didn’t disappoint. A strong malty aroma with dark fruits. Appearance was dark brown in color. Flavors were really nice with notes of figs, yeast, some chocolate. Finish is very clean and smooth. Excellent beer! 2 for 2 with Affligem!

draught. aroma: caramel, dark candy, spicy and a bit dark fruit. tastes sweet, bitterish, spicy and some dark candy. finish brings nothing new except for some fruity banana. bit watery but not thin. not very interesting! bottled version might be better.

HumbertHumbert (77) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2006
The cork on this one just about put my eye out. Poured a lovely clear garnet color with a big but not tight greenish tan head. Very mild aroma of malted milk balls, caramel, and fruit loops. Flavor mostly caramel with mild soy sauce and fruit loops. Astringent finish with a not quite pleasant sour bitterness.

I am gonna go out on a limb and say, right or wrong, for the price, Affligem is one of the best damn Belgium Abbey-styles there is. Pours a ruby-caramel color with great puffed up cotton head. The smell is heavy on malts with hints of lemon zest, white chocolate, and bitter toffee. The taste is bold, with almost more balls than it has, at 7%, it tastes like it has more. It’s lighter than other dubbels but the taste is still well layered. Good malty cream finish, and for under 6 bucks!!?? Buck for buck, this is the iron hammer of Belgium beer.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Deep brown, almost ruby colored pour...tannish head. Sweet malt aroma, some spice too. Flavor is mosty sweet malts...coriander spice all around the edges. Somewhat dry toward the finish. Not too bad.
