330ml brown bottle. Surprisingly great mix of aromas in this one - tea, floral hop, bitter chocolate and fruit. Thick creamy off white head, tight beads. Leaves amazing streaky lacing in the Affligem glass. Beer is reddish brown and hazy. Caramel/dark malts up front, hops arrive mid way through and carry into the finish. Some yeasty aftertastes, and at times it seemed a bit to carbonated, but enjoyable nonetheless.

0,3L bottle (from Wine of Galilee), BB 09.07.16. Pours dark ruby with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, dark fruits, caramel, malt, yeast. Flavor is sweet, malt, caramel, dark fruits, some metallic notes. Finish is malty with touch of alcohol. Overall: nice enough brew.

Cerveza de color ámbar oscuro. Aroma a malta con notas de caramelos y lúpulos. Sabor suave a malta tostada con un toque de fruta rojas. Fácil de beber por una cerveza de abadía.

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 (2431) - 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 (1000) - Vermont, 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 (124) - 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 pour. Golden brown with a tan head. Ripe fruit and raisin. Full body. Fruit, raisin, and cereal taste.

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.
