Bottled. Pours a dark hazy maroonish/brown color. Strong dark fruity aroma. Some raisin in there. Dark fruit and fig flavors right up front. More raisin. Slightly bitter and roasty finish.

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.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2006
Brown to robin-red coloured, large but diminishing brown-off white head. Sweet malty aroma, grainy with some light roasted touches. Full body, little carbonation. Finish is creamy, little bitter with some sweet hints again. light roasted. Not bad, more an average abbey dubbel.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Bottle. Red to brown colored pour with a nice big head. This had a fruity aroma to it, plum and raisins. Had a long sweet finish to it. I was pleasantly surprised.

thewolf (12080) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2006
Purs dark amber with a nice off-white/brown head that sticks to the glass. Heating up the taste adds a bit more sweetness, but overall it’s a weirdly bitter belgian dubbel. The sweetness you expect in the aftertaste is not present, instead a harshness of alcohol prevails (not too much though)

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Pours amber with a red hue and a decent sized creamy beige head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, belgian spices, alcohol, and yeast. Flavor is smooth, prunes, yeasty, citrus, spiced, with a hoppy bitter finish. Good brew.

Dark gold in colour. Flavour is of bread and plum. Aroma has average hoppiness and some flower notes. Body is too light.

chicagobears (449) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2006 Brownish-red, alluring color. Silky beige head. Had a 750ml bottle last week and was floored at how good it was. This one seems to be a little harsher. Might be better to let it mellow out for a few months. Like the last reviewer said this is kinda similar to Chimay red, which is a plus. Though Chimay is superior to this. Affligem abbey dubbel has some plum, raisin notes. Bitter spicy finish. This bottle seems a little offensive.
